Fiat is an Italian automobile manufacturing company that was founded in 1899. Best known for small, sporty cars and rally racing vehicles, Fiat is the third largest automobile manufacturer in the world. The Fiat Bravo was a small passenger car built from 1995-2001, then revived from 2007-2014. The Fiat Bravo was distributed worldwide, even being built and sold in Brazil. The Fiat Bravo is an economical and enthusiastic car to drive and is easily kept in top performing condition with a Fiat Bravo service manual.
Jeremy Clarkson, appearing on an episode of the hit TV car show “Top Gear” said of the Fiat Bravo, “""This is how an ordinary car can look like, if you put a bit of effort into it.” Described as a “futuristic” design in 1995, the Bravo set itself apart from the competition with smooth styling, intelligent engine designs, and a passion to get the most out of a small package.
The first series Fiat Bravo was available with a variety of engines. Most common, the base mode inline four cylinder petrol motor produced 80 metric horsepower (PS). Also available in the Bravo, Fiat’s 1.6L and 1.8L 16 valve engines producing 103 and 113 PS respectively. For Bravo buyers intent on speed, Fiat installed the 2.0L inline five cylinder pumping out up to 155 PS, enough to catapult the little family car to 100 km/h in only eight seconds. For even better economy, Fiat installed two versions of the company’s 1.9L diesel engine, offering phenomenal fuel economy and reliable transportation.
The redesigned Bravo, introduced in 2007, carried the spirit of the previous generation, while being an entirely new car. Styling choices were less radical than previous generations, but Fiat made the smart choice of offering packages buyers could choose from to set their car apart.
Power was provided from a similar set of engines to the previous Bravo models. In addition to new versions of Fiat 1.4L Fire and 1.8L e.torQ, Fiat introduced a turbocharged petrol version of the 1.4L and a version of the same engine powered by LPG. A range of turbocharged diesel engines was available, including a 2.0L plant powerful enough to propel the car to 100 km/h in 8.2 seconds.
Owners can keep these cars in peak condition without throwing money away on a mechanic by using a Fiat Bravo workshop manual that explains each step in detail. Save money and gain a sense of pride by keeping your Fiat Bravo preforming the way it was intended.
