Fiat India Automobiles Limited (FIAL) is planning to launch Fiat Bravo in 2011. Fiat Bravo is a small car which comes under Fiat’s ‘B’ slice. It was primarily named as ‘Stilo’ then renamed it to Bravo. The reason behind it was one of the Italian car makers has already used the name Stilo. As per as the authorized reports, it will come 3 and 5 door options. More than 90 new car models are going to hit India in 2011. It is first time in the history of Indian car Industry.

Fiat Bravo is ready to fight with all upcoming small cars and existing cars like Hyundai i10, Maruti Alto K10, Chevy Beat. It will come in petrol and diesel versions and expected to give more than 18kmpl of mileage. Mileage of this car is most important factor keeps it in the row of competition.
Engine- The petrol version of this car will be powered by 1910cc, 6 gears manual with 4-cylinder. It will have a capacity churn out the maximum power of 150bhp at 4000 rpm and highest peak torque of 305Nm at 2000 rpm. The diesel version comes with the same power and torque rate; the only difference would be the type of fuel in the car.
Exterior- It looks very similar to existing Maruti Alto. It looks dull compare to other upcoming small cars. It may not able to attract customers from its exterior features. You can easily notice that it has got an impact of Chevy Spark (from the rear side). The ‘A’ and ‘C’ pillar of the car looks common, no uniqueness from any angle. The 17 inch alloy wheels and body colored bumpers looks good. Overall, Fiat is hoping the price tag and fuel efficiency of this car will be an important factor for Bravo’s Sales.
