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 34 - 50 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.

Cheap to buy and insure and diesel gives excellent fuel economy. Depreciation will be the biggest cost if picked up at the full list price but it should be easy enough to get a very good discount.

Stilo scores well on the eco front. With an average of 164 g/km CO2 across the line-up, its emissions are relatively low for a small family estate. However, it's worth noting that the line up has a high number of diesel models, bringing the average down and giving buyers more choices of low-emission versions. Diesels typically produce less CO2 than petrol engines with similar power outputs.

Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 1.9-litre diesel, which is one of the greenest models in the range. The range is also fairly economical, averaging 44 mpg.

Better than average for Fiat but there are still some quality niggles. Most are down to sloppy manufacture and are cured under warranty. Some dealers seem to be better than other at sorting problems.
