Bravo Fiat!

By: Zeke Gervis

Bravo is word that is used to express approval, especially of a performance. It is the Italian translation for "well done". Fiat, on the other hand, is a Latin word which means a decree, sanction, or order with authority. When these two words are combined, practically, the result is Bravo Fiat. But mechanically, the result is Fiat Bravo - the car that is ordered to do a well done job.

Why 'Bravo'?
Bravo is a well known and understood word in every corner of the world. Fiat Auto used the word's familiarity around the world to name its newest car. With a new design, new engines and other new developments, the all new bravo is said to be more successful than the Grande Punto. Bravo's original make was sold form 1995 up to 2001.

The Exterior

This consideration is very vital to people who spend more time in their cars.

Practically speaking, the new Fiat Bravo is in. It is a family car with boot space of 400 liters with the rear seat in place. That space can be further increased to up to 1175 liters with rear seats folded down.

When you get inside, you will further appreciate the car because of the quality of materials that were used and the care that is built for the smallest details. Once bought, the car ensures a wide array of advanced technological features plus quality standards that fit a higher class car. In other words, safety, comfort, and driving enjoyment are packaged.
