Well built cabin, surprising off-road ability, comfortable ride, available in two or four-wheel drive
Petrol engine needs to be worked hard, ordinary styling, noisy at speed
It may be called the Sedici (Italian for 16 - in reference to its 4x4 system), but this small Fiat isn't a hardcore all terrain car. True, most models come with four-wheel drive as standard, but it is designed to primarily be a small and practical family car with some off-road ability - ideal for tackling muddy inclines and dusty gravel paths. It's actually a joint project with Suzuki (which builds the virtually identical Sedici in the same factory) and is well put together with a comfortable and neat cabin.
It isn't the most striking car to look at, but its small size makes it easy to drive and the 1.9-litre MultiJet diesel offers good economy.
