Wow! Just wow! Never would have I imagined to drive a car whose steering needs Viagra. That steering wheel moves so easily that I nearly broke a nail the first time I tried to turn into a parking spot. I thought a lighter steering wheel would be more helpful for a lady like me, but it turns out I was wrong.
Anyway, apart from that rather scary feel when turning in "City" mode, I gotta say that I kinda liked the Fiat Bravo. It has a nice, curvy exterior, and that rear is absolutely sexy! I just love how those bulgy taillights look, especially at night.
What I didn't quite like was the interior. All that black and grey almost game me a depression, honestly. The overall design is very nice, but the people in charge of interior colors should really lay off the downers and maybe start an uppers diet. That dashboard and those seats are way too sadness-inducing compared to the joyful exterior.
Another somewhat annoying bit is the way to open the luggage compartment from the exterior. It is expected that your hand should get all dirty by pressing on the Fiat badge on the rear just to open the hatch, which I find to be totally unacceptable.
I mean, I'm paying my Taiwanese manicurist hefty amounts of money every other day just to keep my nails all polished and shiny. Why should I get my hands all dirty just from opening the trunk? Oh well, other than these minor "glitches", I must say that I'm beginning to really like Italian cars. First there was that cute and cuddly Alfa Romeo MiTo, now this rather gorgeous Bravo... yup, I like'em both almost as much, but with an emphasis on the little red Alfa.
