Fiat to introduce optional 'Eco pack' to new Bravo 1.6 Multijet
4 February 2008

Fiat plans to introduce an ultra-frugal version of the Bravo. The ‘Eco’ pack, which will be available as an option on the new 1.6-litre Multijet turbodiesel engine, consists of low rolling resistance tyres, longer gear ratios and different ECU settings. The result of these tweaks is combined fuel consumption of 62.7mpg (up 5.0mpg on the standard 103bhp 1.6 Multijet) and CO2 emissions of 119g/km. But unlike the standard 103bhp 1.6-litre Multijet Bravo, Eco pack cars are only Euro4 compliant, and do not meet Euro5 emissions regulations.The Fiat also stops short of VW Bluemotion-style aerodynamic adjustments, and there is no badging to distinguish Eco pack cars from other Bravos. The Eco pack will be available when the new engine arrives in the UK later this year for around £300 more than the standard car.

Our Verdict

Fiat Bravo

The Fiat Bravo is a stylish Focus rival. It's good value, but has an odd driving position

    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
