2 Days ago I had possibility for Bravo test drive.

It was 1.4 turbo 120 HP Dynamic, and I'm really impressed from engine. I have 1.4 16v Sporting and you will say that there is only 25 HP difference but in reality difference is huge because of torque. It is pulling very nice in each gear even wit 4 persons inside.

Really nice car for affordable price.

Hi Folks,

I"m new on this forum but maybe you can give me some more input about the Bravo.
I"m flirting with the idea of buying a new 1.4 turbo 120 HP Dynamic trading in my Alfa 147 Dist.Can anybody tell me whats the difference in the engine between the 120 and the 150Hp versions?/Intercooler,other technics or just the turbo pressure?/
Anyway,do you think that the 120 Hp is decent power source for this car?

Thx,

I know these specs very well.My original question was:
Can anybody tell me whats the difference in the engine between the 120 and the 150Hp versions?/Intercooler,other technics or just the turbo pressure?/
Are these engines the same with some remap in case of the 150 Hp or totally differents.

I"ve just read a roadtest on the Autocar.co.uk.According to the test person the engine is quite noisy,lack of torque at slow speeds,awkward driving position.
What"s an ownwer opinion about it?

what one person likes/dislikes others dont......if your thinking of spending this amount of money its best to test drive the car yourself.

Every person would have there own story whether it is a fiat or not, if you was to go by reviews alone you wouldn't buy a car because there will be negative and positive responses some which may equal with every car.
Best to go and test drive the 2 different models and see for yourself.
But i can tell you from my experience there is no loss in torque at low speeds, at least i haven't noticed this, and the driving position is just fine,
also is not noisy, others might say the complete opposite to me, best to go to your local fiat dealer and test drive the 2 models.

Hi Folks,

I read in a car magazin ,that the new Bravo Tjet has a gasoline direct injection engine.Do you have any information about it?Or are these the reincarnations of the old Fire engine?:confused:

its a beefed up more modern version of the panda 100hp engine (also in the Punto mk2b sporting and Stilo Active Sport) but with a turbo. And also don't expect to get Factory figures on the MPG :rolleyes:
