Cheap to buy and insure, diesel gives excellent fuel economy, but depreciation is high so get a good deal when you buy.
Stilo scores well on the eco front. With an average of 171 g/km CO2 across the range, its emissions are quite low for a small family hatchback. 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 42 mpg.
Better than average for Fiat but there are still some quality niggles. Most are down to sloppy manufacture and get fixed under warranty.

How much is it to insure?
Vehicle excise duty (VED) varies according to the CO2 emissions and the fuel type of the vehicle. For cars registered before 01 March 2001 it is based on engine size. For cars registered on or after 01 March 2001 the VED or road tax is based on the car's CO2 emissions.
