A better Bravo

Fiat has announced details on its 2010 Bravo hatch, which has received a few minor cosmetic revisions for the model year. On the outside, the Bravo's upper and lower front grilles have been re-trimmed and are now offered either in black or chrome finish while the headlamps on all models are smoked.

Furthermore, the mirrors and door handles are finished in the color as the body on all trim levels while Fiat added two new colors to the palette (a different shade of gray and a pear finish).

A new set of available optional packages and refreshed designs, colors for the seat and door panel upholstery complete the list of changes.

There has been no mention of any updates to the powertrains, so expect them to remain similar to the current offerings.

The Bravo's sales has been lacklusture in the Singapore market thus far. Perhaps, some aggressive marketing efforts by TTS Eurocars would be required to raise the brand's awareness among motorists, just like what Audi, Volkswagen and Alfa Romeo have done in recent months.

The revised Bravo came just in time to face off against newer models such as the Opel Astra, Ford Focus and Renault Megane. However, my opinion is that the minor cosmetic changes is insufficient to fend off the fresher competitions. A more powerful 1.4 T-jet engine for the automatic version would be on my wish list.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
