New Fiat Bravo

New Fiat Bravo 

The Fiat Bravo is a small family cars produced by the Italian automaker Fiat from 1995 to 2001. The name was revived for 2007 with an all-new replacement for the Fiat Stilo; the new version will only use the Bravo name. The earlier Fiat Brava/Bravo models were two versions of the same car, the Bravo a three-door hatchback and the Brava a longer five-door hatchback.

Fiat is back in the family hatchback market with a bang. The Bravo is a replacement for the Stilo, a car that wasn’t very popular due to its dull and a cheap looks. Its replacement may use the same name as Fiat’s three-door hatch from the mid-1990s but this car is a generously sized five-door that is a credible alternative to the likes of the Ford Focus.

Fiat Bravo are available in five engines, with an 89bhp 1.4-litre petrol model kicking off the range, the turbocharged 1.4-litre T-Jet is a much better bet. Fiat Bravo offers three excellent turbodiesel, a 1.6 that comes in standard- and low-C02 forms with 118- or 104bhp (automatic gearbox), and a 163bhp 2.0-litre.

One of the Bravo’s best aspects is its quietness. Road noise is well suppressed, and although there is some wind noise, it’s not intrusive. Engine noise fades into the background at a steady cruise. The Fiat Bravo was awarded a maximum five-star rating in Euro NCAP crash tests, and twin front, side and curtain airbags are standard across the board.

Basic Fiat Bravo models come with:

air-con
CD player
front electric windows
remote central locking
alloy wheels
climate control
Bluetooth

    Funny, I read the statement while otehrs swear that hybrids are less expensive to insure because the demographics of hybrid owners show that they live and work in safer neighborhoods and the obvious jumped out at me. Maybe because I am an insurance agent or because I love to disect the words in a sentence to derive its meaning. Let me ask a question that probably has its own answer in the question. Is the insurance on the hybrid lower because of the owner or is the insurance lower regardless of the car, hybrid or not, because of the demographics of the owner. Insurance is a business of collecting premiums and paying claims. If a hybrid and a non-hybrid are parked in the same driveway owned by the same person? Hybrid is more for physical damage because most of the parts are new and expensive. Liability could be more or less depending on safety ratings. Overall I think it is more.
