Frankfurt am main, 26. September 2008 – fiat gives the bravo sport a new diesel engine from the group’s range. The compact car with the fuel-efficient and low-emission self-tinder will be on display at the paris motor show from 4. To 19. October 2008.
Economical two-liter diesel
Until now, the bravo has only been available with 1.6-liter and 1.9-liter diesel engines. Both only meet euro 4 emissions standard. Now a 2.0-liter diesel engine is added, which already meets the euro 5 standard. The engine is familiar from the lancia delta. In addition to the emissions rating, its performance is also better than that of the engines previously offered: it has 165 hp, whereas previously it stopped at 150 diesel hp. Torque is 360 instead of 305 newton meters. At the same time, standard consumption is lower at 5.3 instead of 5.6 liters per 100 kilometers. This puts the bravo in a good position: a vw golf 2.0 tdi with 170 hp, for example, needs 5.9 liters per 100 kilometers. Apart from the new engine, the vehicle shown in paris has 18-inch aluminum wheels, red brake calipers, a rear spoiler and side skirts, and a sporty interior with chrome inserts and leather details.
New panda gasoline engines
The panda will also be on show with revised 1.1- and 1.2-liter gasoline engines. Fiat promises that the engines now consume 11 percent less fuel. A leisure version of the qubo is also new.
