Solidity, interior space on five-door.
Petrol engines lack torque, mediocre boot space.
Stilo replaced the Bravo/Brava range. The three-door car has a rather sporty look and feel and even comes in 170bhp Abarth trim. The five-door version is more family-orientated, with better rear access and legroom. Softly sprung, comfortable and significantly cheaper than a Golf (which is what Fiat aimed at). The 1.2 engine struggles with four people in it, but all are well-equipped, cheap to buy and better built than some recent Fiats.
