About Fiat Bravo engine

The Fiat Bravo and Fiat Brava are small family cars produced by the Italian automaker Fiat from 1995 to 2001. The name was revived for 2007 with an all new replacement for the Stilo; the new version will use only the Bravo name and is not available with three doors. The earlier Brava/Bravo models were effectively two versions of the same car, the Bravo a 3 door hatchback and the Brava a longer 5 door hatchback.

The Bravo and Brava Mark 1 were replacements for Fiat’s successful but ageing Tipo model. The cars came with all new engines, the base model using a 1.4 L 12-valve engine producing 80 PS (59 kW). Three other petrol engines were available: the 103 PS (76 kW) 1.6 L 16-valve; the 113 PS (83 kW) 1.8 L 16-valve engine and the top of the range 2.0 L 20-valve R5 unit used in the HGT model, which produced 147 PS (108 kW) and which could take the car to a maximum speed of 213 km/h (132 mph), later in 1999 the HGT 155 model replaced the older model, power rising to 155 PS (114 kW). Two turbo diesel engines were also available: both were 1.9 L four cylinder units, one producing 75 PS (55 kW) and the other making 100 PS (74 kW). Bravo/Brava was voted European Car of the Year on its launch.

The Bravo/Brava received a mild makeover in 1999 but there were few real changes except the replacement of the 1.4 12-valve engine with a 1.2 16-valve engine from the smaller Fiat Punto and a restyling of the dashboard. The 1.9 turbo diesel was also phased out in favour of 1.9 JTD diesel units (now with and 105 PS (77 kW)), to give even better economy and refinement.

Performance

The 2 litre version with engine borrowed from the Punto arrived in 1999 and was available on 99S plates. Don’t dismiss it as underpowered until you’ve tried one as this engine replaced a 1.6 in the Punto range. If you want something sportier, the well equipped 1.6 is probably the pick of the 3 mainstream petrol engines. If you can find a 2.0 HGT variant however, you’ll have done yourself a favour: the five-cylinder engine is a joy, smooth, flexible and fast. Two sophisticated turbo diesel engines are also an important part of the line-up – the TD75 and the TD100 (the figures representing the brake horsepower output of the respective engines). The fuel consumption figures for both are near enough identical (you’ll average around 32mpg around town), but, as you might expect, the TD100 is significantly quicker, making rest to sixty in 11.0s on the way to 112mph. On the road, you don’t need reminding that the body structure is one of the stiffest in the class – it feels it. Not only over potholes either, when you wait in vain for the whole car to shake. A VW Golf might feel equally solid, but it wouldn’t keep either Bravo or Brava in sight on a twisting country road. Fiat is now a company run by car enthusiasts and it’s obvious from behind the wheel.

The Newer Bravo engine boosts Fiat’s green credentials

A new diesel engine, introduced initially for use in the Bravo range, has again demonstrated Fiat Group’s commitment to the production of increasingly environmentally-friendly cars.

Fiat’s new 1.6 MultiJet 16v unit, announced just last week, promises sparkling performance, outstanding torque, increased noise suppression and lower running costs for the Bravo range. The addition also makes Bravo the first car in its category to be fitted with a Euro 5 compliant engine, well ahead of that 2009 deadline.

The new Bravo 1.6 MultiJet is also available with a special eco-package in 105 bhp form. In addition to revised engine ECU settings, this ‘Eco’ pack employs special measures to optimise aerodynamics, and incorporates low rolling resistance tyres and ‘taller’ gear ratios to return some outstanding fuel consumption and CO2 figures: 62.7 mpg in the combined cycle (an increase of some 5 mpg on the standard 105 bhp 1.6 MultiJet) and CO2 emissions of just 119 g/km.

This latter figure will assist in Fiat Group’s pledge to be the leading manufacturer in terms of weighted average CO2 levels. Last year, Fiat Group CEO Sergio Marchionne told the international media that: “regardless of what other car makers will do, our Group is committed, by 2012, to reaching the lowest weighted average CO2 emission level for the cars it produces, with respect to competitors.”

Fiat is currently among the top performers in Europe for having the lowest average CO2 emissions, posting 144 g/km, according to figures published by the European Federation for Transport and Environment (EFTE).

The new 1.6 MultiJet has four cylinders in line, 16 valves, and a displacement of 1598 cc. Two different engines are being produced: one developing 105 bhp at 4000 rpm and torque of 290 Nm (214 lb ft) at 1500 rpm; the other developing 120 bhp at 4000 rpm and torque of 300 Nm (221 lb ft) at 1500 rpm.

These engines are boosted by either electronically-controlled fixed-geometry (105 bhp version) or variable-geometry (120 bhp version) turbochargers, to enhance power output while providing very high torque even at low revs. Compared with the current Fiat 1.9 MultiJet 120 bhp unit, the 1.6 MultiJet series represents an important step forward, with the same power, torque is improved by almost 25 per cent at 1500 rpm, and consumption is reduced by eight per cent.

Another factor in the improved all-round performance is the high pressure multi-injection system, which goes from 1300 bar in the 1.9 MultiJet to 1600 bar in the 1.6 MultiJet (in both power versions). The injectors adapt to engine speed, thus optimising performance in terms of perceived power and driveability.
