Fiat is using a name from its recent past, Bravo, to help make up ground in the highly competitive family car sector. The 2007 Bravo's predecessor, the Stilo, was a poor performer in terms of sales and when measured objectively against key rivals like the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf. Using the name of a three-door hatchback from the mid 1990s, the Bravo is a generously sized five-door hatchback with a range of hi-tech features and efficient engines. The Bravo looks both elegant and sporty, and it's priced well below its mainstream European rivals. However, some of the materials used inside feel a little cheap spoiling the car's overall solid feel, and knee-room is particularly tight behind front seats set for people anywhere near six feet tall.
