Used Fiat Multipla

Background

The typical Brit car buyer is a conservative creature, as displayed by the UK public's rather misplaced antipathy towards Fiat's Multipla. OK, so its styling is adventurous at best, downright ugly at worst, but reviews on other aspects of the Multipla have been stellar. Are Brits cutting off their noses to spite their faces by opting for ostensibly more attractive rivals such as the Vauxhall Zafira and Renault Scenic?

1999's launch model offered two engine options: a 103bhp 1.6 16v petrol and a great little 1.9-litre JTD turbo diesel, plus two trim options: SX or ELX. In the year 2000 the used Fiat Multipla won Top Gear's Car of the Year award among many others and yet somehow was only managing 10% of its rival Renault Scenic's sales figures. Investigations revealed the public simply couldn't accept the Multipla's bold and rather odd styling, resulting in a major redesign in 2004. While the facelifted Multipla still bore no resemblance to something like a hot hatch, it was conventional enough to boost sales, with the aid of revised trim levels including new Dynamic, Dynamic Plus and Eleganza and a new 1.9 litre Multijet diesel engine.

Bang for your buck

The approved Fiat Multipla represented something completely new for Fiat - both in practical and design terms it resembled absolutely nothing previously produced by them. However the amount of original thought expended on the Multipla as opposed to creative rehashing of existing ideas is evident in its clever use of space: an unusual 3+3 front and rear seating layout, low and wide flooring and lofty, domed roof.

The original's froggy features were replaced with a far more streamlined design – still the same basic shape but somehow smoothed out and with a neater design to the auxiliaries. The funky interior didn't need so much work, retaining a dashboard that managed to be both curvy retro and space-age futuristic simultaneously and an unorthodox distribution of driver controls, in a small way making up for the lack of cool on the outside.

Aesthetics aside, the trick up the used Fiat Multipla's sleeve was its innovative three abreast front and rear seating arrangement – while measuring less than a VW Golf it can comfortably accommodate six and still have room in the boot. Its height makes it easy access even for the motor impaired, seats all feature three-point belts and are easily removed with the front middle also folding down to provide cup holders or be replaced by a cooled or heated cubby box in the centre console. The same applies to the rear middle, which can be folded or replaced with a small fridge. Passenger comfort is second to none, while luggage space is exemplary. It really is all very clever.

What you'll pay

While they are hard to find, residual values on early used Fiat Multipla cars for sale are good. A V-reg 1.6 still commands up to £3,000 and a bit more for diesel.

Second generation 2004 Fiat Multipla models start at about £4,500 for a Dynamic and similar for the next model up, the Dynamic Plus – worthwhile for the climate control, side airbags, alarm and front fog lights on the plusher model. The range topping Eleganza is closer to £5,000 for the same year. As usual the more desirable diesels hold their value better so you're looking at about an extra £500.

What to check

The vehicle is solid even if after-sales service is apparently a bit iffy. Check for parking damage, by drivers unaccustomed to the Multipla's width and general interior wear and tear.

Parts

In keeping with the used Fiat Multipla's economy buy principles, a clutch assembly can be had for £115, a set of front brakes £40 and rear £52, oil filter £7, air filter £8 and spark plugs £4.

How it drives

For a vehicle with so much height and width, the second hand Fiat Multipla's handling is exemplary. While it's no speed demon, steering and gear change are as good as you will find on far more up to date vehicles. Go for the diesel – while performance is similar between the diesel and petrol engines, the diesel is far more efficient and has better torque weight. The low, square body might impede acceleration figures and make parking in small spaces challenging but keeps it nice and steady around corners. If you don't mind looking a bit different, the early Multipla's rather Disney styling will appeal to your kids, while the more conservative redesign still offers unusual looks with the same practical features.
