Cheap to buy and spacious for its size.
Not a big seller, so finding one may be difficult.
The name Idea actually stands for Intelligent Design, Emotion and Architecture. It's Fiat's answer to the Vauxhall Meriva and offers plenty of space in a relatively compact body shape. The rear seats offer a fair degree of flexibility and there are some thoughtful touches and a generous level of equipment for the money. That's the intelligence and design, but we can't see much in the way of emotion in the architecture.
That doesn't stop it being a useful little family runabout however. A light facelift was administered in 2006.
