The 3-door FIAT Bravo and 5-door Brava models were introduced at the end of 1995, as part of a new range of FIAT models which began with the successful Punto a year earlier. The elegant all-new design won the coveted Car of the Year award in 1996.
The engines are all fuel-injected, in-line, multi-valve four-cylinder units of 1370 cc, 1581 cc or 1747 cc displacement, and all feature a comprehensive engine management system with extensive emission control equipment. In early 1999, the range received a minor facelift, and the 1370 cc 12-valve engine was replaced by the 1242 cc 16-valve engine from the FIAT Punto.
The 3- and 5-door bodyshells are extensively galvanised and particularly rigid, and offer spacious accommodation. The cars have many crash safety measures, such as a driver’s airbag, side impact bars, anti-submarine seats, and front seat belt pre-tensioners.
Transmissions are either 5-speed manual, or 4-speed automatic with computer control. The automatic transmission features mode control selection, allowing the driver to alter the transmission characteristics to suit normal, sport or winter driving requirements.
Braking is by discs at the front, and drums at the rear, with the handbrake acting on the rear drums. Anti-lock braking (ABS) is available as an option. The suspension is conventional, with struts and wishbones at the front, and a torsion beam rear axle. Power-assisted rack and pinion steering is standard on all models.
A high level of standard equipment, and a wide range of optional equipment, is available within the range to suit virtually all tastes. All models have a driver’s airbag, tinted glass, high-level brake light and central locking, with several featuring electric windows, electric sunroof and alloy wheels.
Provided that regular servicing is carried out in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations, the FIAT Bravo and Brava will provide reliable and economical family motoring. The engine compartment is relatively spacious, and most of the items requiring frequent attention are easily accessible.
Your FIAT Bravo/Brava manual
The aim of this manual is to help you get the best value from your vehicle. It can do so in several ways. It can help you decide what work must be done (even should you choose to get it done by a garage). It will aiso provide information on routine maintenance and servicing, and give a logical course of action and diagnosis when random faults occur.
However, it is hoped that you will use the manual by tackling the work yourself. On simpler jobs it may even be quicker than booking the car into a garage and going there twice, to leave and collect it. Perhaps most important, a lot of money can be saved by avoiding the costs a garage must charge to cover its labour and overheads.
The manual has drawings and descriptions to show the function of the various components so that their layout can be understood. Tasks are described and photographed in a clear step-by-step sequence. The illustrations are numbered by the Section number and paragraph number to which they relate – if there is more than one illustration per paragraph, the sequence is denoted alphabetically.References to the ‘left’ or ‘right’ of the vehicle are in the sense of a person in the driver’s seat, facing forwards.
