Fiat has just announced pricing in the UK for the Fiat Bravo fitting the new 1.6 Multijet diesel engines. Feel like spending the least amount of money for a Bravo? You can get a Active 1.6 Multijet starting at £13,595. There are two versions of the 1.6 Multijet engine available, one good for 118 HP. Then there are two 104 HP versions. Consumption and CO2 figures are impressive for a car that's a tad bigger than a VW Golf: 47, 47 and 52 MPG, and and 129, 129 and 119 g/km of CO2, respectivel
Later this year in the UK buyers of Fiat's Bravo can pay just £300 ($595 US dollars) for the optional "Eco" pack. What's in the "Eco" Pack? The package includes low rolling resistance tires, longer gear ratios and different setting for the car's computer. All that eco-pack-goodness adds up to an improvement of 5 MPG which brings the turbo diesel Bravo to 62 MPG.
Until now, Fiat had only two diesel engine sizes for diesel cars: 1.3 and 1.9-liter. In order to "fill the gap" between the two, the automaker has released a new 1.6-liter engine that can be ordered in 105 and 120 HP versions. Fiat's Lorenzo Sistino states, "This new generation of diesel engines is suitable for the newest CO2-based tax schemes which are being implemented around Europe".
Fiat's already started the machinations to bring Alfa back to the North American market, so is it too much to dream that Fiat proper would mount a return as well? The rhetoric surrounding the 2010 Bravo is that it's an integral part to the brand spreading to more diverse markets. What could be more diverse than a US market that's devoid of all those interesting foreign and domestic brands that were once vibrant? Motor Authority's rendering shows a handsome vehicle with a contemporary look. Conte
Typically we get production announcements from manufacturers one model at a time, if not one brand at a time, but the Fiat Group has released their full production schedule for the Lancia, Alfa Romeo and Fiat brands for the next few years.
