Car reviews - Mazda - Bravo - cab/chassis 4x2 utility
22 Feb 2002
THE CAR-LIKE dash is stylish and practical with its sweeping one-piece mould rising up from just left of centre to provide a curved space for the instrument panel. The instruments are analogue except for the odometer, which is digital and offers one trip meter reading selected and reset by pressing a rod that protrudes from the instrument panel. A tachometer is standard and its large circumference makes it easy to read at a glance. The instrument panel has a strip of warning lights along the bottom, some of which illuminate before starting the engine to provide a "safety/operation check" measure. The number of lamps varies depending on the Bravo model chosen. A low fuel warning lamp is only available in 4x2. The AM/FM radio/cassette features a digital clock and is simple to use with five channel memory buttons and a seek function. The retractable antenna is mounted on the roof above the driver, providing good reception via the two front-door speakers. The glovebox is generous and lockable with the ignition key. Mazda's integrated air-conditioning is an option across the range.
