Looks awesome but the front grille and bonnet line have a lot of Grande Punto hints about them.

Awesome design! Front has a tinge of Grande Punto and the side profile looks like Alfa Brera. The choice of engines is also good. Now, can Fiat show some vision and bring this to India as a niche product please? Looks enticing.

The Bravo is actually the Euro-spec Ford Mondeo's competitor. I don't belive it will make it into India at all, judging from the Mondeo's miserable life-span here.

News of Fiat's decision to make a proper Golf rival in the new Stilo was reported on this very site here (Fiat readies proper Golf rival) back in June. Now the pictures are out. As expected and reported then, Fiat has decided to do away with the Stilo brand name which IMO is a good move.

Since the Bravo is a VW Golf rival, it wouldn't be coming to India anytime soon unless Fiat makes a sedan out of it and brings it here priced at about Rs. 12-13 lakhs. They could badge the car Alfa Romeo since Indians wouldn't put that kind of money for a Fiat even with the 1.9L multi-jet. What say guys?

Its a very good looking hatch and Fiat is looking forward to its debut in the internetional market,but for india its not a viable option at all.

those italians sure know how to design a car. this is definately not coming here though. but we are going to get the baby maserati (grande punto) and probably the sadan version of it called the linea.

Fiat logo has indeed changed.Read the story here :-
http://www.fiat.com/cgi-bin/pbrand.d...OID=1074093096

"The symbol is a modern reinterpretation of the famous badge that appeared on the front of Fiat cars from 1931 to 1968."

Some more pics of the bravo,but with the present badge -
