Fiat took the wraps off its new Bravo in Rome today before the company plans to offer the five-door hatch across Europe in the coming weeks. The Bravo returns to the market with a sleek and sexy Italian body that makes it appear far more expensive than the typical five-door hatches we’re used to passing on U.S. roadways. The Italian automaker says the new car embodies the synthesis of Beauty and Substance.
Its beauty is apparent, at least to us, and its substance can be found in a wide array of engines that includes two diesels based off of the company’s 1.9-liter Multijet producing 120 and 150 bhp, a 90-bhp 1.4-liter gas engine, and two new turbocharged, 1.4-liter T-JET gas engines producing 120 and 150 bhp, respectively. Not much more information was presented on the Bravo, so we’ll have to wait a little while longer to find out what substance fills the car’s sexy shell, but we’re more than happy to take in its style until then. The Bravo, of course, won’t be sold in the U.S., which, quite frankly, is a shame.
