2001 Fiat Brava 80SX

 
 

This was actually my wife’s car. She traded in her prized Seicento Sporting for this car due to us needing more room when our son Ben came along. It needed to be cheap and reliable so the Brava fitted the bill. It was fitted with the same engine as in my Punto Sporting so it was quite nippy but the long gearing meant you had to work it hard to get the best out of it.  This car was eventually replaced by our Multipla which we had always wanted and were now in a position to buy one.
