Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 32 - 45 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

The diesel's good fuel economy is appealing for buyers on a budget. Despite its leftfield looks, the Multipla is a good performer for depreciation, with above average residuals, thanks to its outstanding practicality and voluminous interior.

The Multipla isn't especially green with average CO2 emissions of 186g/km. The diesel is the better of the two engines - the 120bhp version emits 164g/km of CO2 and averages 46mpg.

The Multipla is mechanically sound but it's not without its fault elsewhere. Most problems seem to be niggles rather than anything serious, but it's not uncommon for cars to have to return to dealerships repeatedly to get issues resolved. Loose trim and electrical faults seem to be the most common and Fiat dealers aren't always the best around. Some owners report a few minor niggles with code immobilisers and electrical systems.
