Fiat Scudo Review 2024

Fiat Scudo At A Glance


+Great to drive, useful payload, fits in garages and multi-storeys

-Only one roof height, small load volume than rivals

Fiat’s fourth-generation Scudo replaces the third-gen model that was only on sale for 18 months, and is essentially a revised and improved version of what was already a great van. But is it worth considering over its rivals or its Stellantis sister models? Read our in-depth Fiat Scudo review to find out.

Introduced in April 2024, the fourth-generation Fiat Scudo shares its main bodywork, platform and engines with the Vauxhall Vivaro, Peugeot Expert and Citroen Dispatch.

Together with its sister models, it forms part of a range of vans that is among the most prolific across Europe and beyond.  

The four vans are essentially the same – they use the same choice of bodies (two body lengths, plus a crew van and a chassis cab option) but each has a few differences to set it apart.

Heavily revised in April 2024, the latest Fiat Scudo is more refined than before with a much-improved cabin, uprated tech and a new-style front end with Fiat’s new retro-styled grille badge and angular headlamps.

Sold under the Fiat Professional banner in the UK, the Fiat Scudo is sold primarily to fleet customers but SME and private users can still benefit from some keen pricing offers, especially on the higher-specification Primo models.

The van is based on what Stellantis calls its EMP2 platform, available in two lengths and with 1.5 or 2.0-litre diesel engines. An electric Fiat e-Scudo is also offered and is reviewed separately.

The entry 1.5-litre diesel is offered with either 100PS or 120PS engines and a six-speed manual gearbox, while the 145PS 2.0-litre adds the option of eight-speed automatic transmission as well as a flagship (but rare) 180PS model that is auto only.

Two trim levels are offered – the no-nonsense ‘Scudo’ and the more upmarket ‘Primo’, with standard (5.0 metre) and Maxi (5.3 metre) body lengths, with both getting a double cab crew van option and the longer van getting standard twin side loading doors.

All Fiat Scudos come with a 36-month, 100,000-mile warranty.
