Fiat is preparing its new Bravo for debut at Geneva next spring, and photos have surfaced of a test mule tooling around Turin.

Fiat hopes to take aim at the hot-selling Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus with its new Bravo hatch, developed in conjunction with Canadian components supplier Magna. Although the mules are heavily disguised, you can discern a front end influenced by the Italian company's successful Grande Punto, above which the Bravo will slot in the Fiat line-up. Considering the new Punto was penned by Giorgetto Giugiaro's ItalDesign, that's not a bad thing to emulate.

Fiat needs the Bravo to succeed in order to maintain the positive momentum gained by the success of the new Punto. Although the Bravo won't be reaching American shores, the Alfa 149, which will share share its platform, likely will.
