Fiat Scudo Launched
Fiat reveals the Scudo to the world at the same time as its Citroen and Peugeot partners take the wraps off their near identical vans.
The new Scudo is available in 18 versions from launch, priced from £15,884 – £22,688 on-the-road. The 2007 Scudo range encompasses Panel Vans, Platform Cabs as a basis for conversion, and two Commercial Passenger Vehicle variants, the 5/6 or 8/9 seat Combi and the 5/6 seat Panorama Family. The latter can also be requested with a third row seating option.
The new Scudo features larger dimensions to the length, height and width of a load compartment now offering a maximum volume of 7 m3 and a payload of up to 1200 kg. The new Platform Cab range offers an increased, driver inclusive payload of up to 3000kg. Engines are a 1.6-litre 90PS diesel and 120PS and 140PS 2.0 litre diesels.
Scudo Voted 2008 International Van of the Year.
Fiat launches new range of Euro 5 emissions-compliant engines. Range starts with a 90PS 1.6-litre and there are two 2.0-litre turbodiesels with 130PS and 163PS.
A light facelift brings a new front bumper and small changes for the Scudo to keep it fresh.
Awarded three stars in Euro NCAP tests
The Scudo was awarded 58 per cent for adult occupant safety and 86 per cent for child occupant safety while pedestrian safety was 26 per cent. The safety assist rating was poor at 26 per cent because although electronic stability control is available as an option it did not meet Euro NCAP's fitment requirements.
Scudo Sportivo launched
Adds alloy wheels, engine power upgrades, Sportivo side-stripes and painted bumpers. As with Tecnico versions, air conditioning, Blue&Me connectivity with a TomTom satnav dock, front fog lights and parking sensors are also standard. The Scudo Sportivo costs £13,195 for the 2.0 130 MultiJet which gets an extra 40PS compared to the equivalent Scudo Tecnico 1.6 90 MultiJet while costing £700 more.
