Fiat Bravo 20VT HGT VS VW Golf IV GTI

In this rivalry, we compare two C-Segment hot hatches from the late 90’s. On the left, the Fiat Bravo 20VT HGT 155 from Italy, a stylish, comfortable, fast and affordable hot hatch exclusively available in 3-door bodystyle. On the right, the VW Golf IV GTI 150 from Germany, a solid, mature, practical and well equipped hot hatch available in both 3-door and 5-door bodystyles. For the purpose of this comparison, we chose the 155 PS version of the Fiat Bravo and the 150 PS version of the VW Golf in order to have closer results.

So lets start with a design battle before we move on to their specifications.
