The Fiat Scudo is the sister model to Citroen’s Dispatch and the Peugeot Expert, but that doesn’t take away from its versatility in the light van sector. It was launched in 2007 and then improved in 2011 when it was facelifted, so it’s still a sound choice.

It offers plenty of load space and versatility is also good thanks to flexible options. There are combi and chassis platform versions on offer to give customers greater variety with the Scudo. So it’s a shame the cabin isn’t so generous with its passenger space.

Fiat offers a strong range of three MultiJet turbodiesel engines for the Scudo and it comes with a healthy amount of standard equipment included in the price. Most versions have electric windows, but only the top spec gains automatic headlights and wipers as standard.

With competitive pricing and good economy and emissions from its Euro 5-compliant range of diesel engines, the Scudo is worthy of consideration, even if it’s not an outright obvious first choice.
