Generously equipped, hugely spacious interior, strong diesel engines
Ungainly styling, dull to drive, bland interior, limited choice of petrol engines
The Fiat Croma was only sold for a brief period of two years in the UK. Despite some strong diesel engines and a roomy interior, the ungainly styling and poor driving experience found few fans. Its biggest problem is that it doesn't quite know what it - halfway between an MPV and a traditional estate it's neither one nor the other. But if you want something with plenty of passenger space and a decent boot then the Croma can make a bargain buy.
The petrol engines are best avoided as the Multijet diesels are far superior and although the handling is forgettable, the Croma does ride well and makes a comfortable cruiser.
