Fiat Reviews

Good: Tight turning circle, comfortable cabin with room for three, strong 2.3-litre diesel engine.
Bad: Noisy engines, disappointingly no ESP as standard until April 2013, gearbox failure quite common.
Good: Good value, comfortable on the move, impressive diesel engines, a big improvement on the previous Doblo, improved economy and refinement from 2015 facelift.
Bad: Poor motorway refinement in pre-2015 models, 1.4-litre petrol lacks oomph out of town.
Good: Surprisingly good performance from small diesel, good quality interior, less than four metres long so easy to slot into small spaces and ideal for town.
Bad: Not really suited to longer journeys, noisy at higher speeds, cramped cabin for taller drivers.
Good: Based on the Mitsubishi L200, 3.1 tonne towing capacity, strong 2.4-litre diesel engine.
Bad: Some versions are more expensive than their Mitsubishi counterparts, ride can get uncomfortable on rough roads, noisy five-speed auto gearbox.
Good: Tight turning circle and compact dimensions makes it ideal for town, cheap to run with economical MultiJet diesel engine.
Bad: Not as accomplished as the Ford Fiesta Van, interior doesn't feel very durable.
Good: Cheap and compact MPV with twin sliding side doors, practical with 2500 litre capacity, suitable for wheelchair conversion.
Bad: Ride quality is far from brilliant, diesels are noisy, no thrills and van-like interior.
Good: Punchy 2.0 MultiJet diesel available, stable and agile in corners even when fully loaded, combi and minibus options available.
Bad: Passenger space not as good as it should be, ESP stability control only standard on top models, 1.6-litre diesel feels strained on open roads.
Good: Based on impressive Renault Trafic, easy to drive, strong diesel engines.
Bad: Standard equipment is a little thin, will only carry 1.2 tonnes, lacks the advanced safety tech of its rivals.
