Styling flair; lively engines; agile handling
Mediocre low-speed ride
Concept-car looks, Italian flair and the promise of good build quality shifted the Bravo/Brava small family models from Fiat showrooms when they were launched in 1996. But by the end of its showroom life in 2002, even massive incentives like zero per cent finance over four years plus £1000 cashback were failing to pull in the punters. And hard-nosed buyers didn't even expect to pay the full discounted price!
The result is weak residual values, which means that Bravo is now a bargain on the used market.
