The Fiat Scudo has to be one of the best looking fridges-on-wheels. Forget the bland mundane brick-on-wheels look. The Scudo has a very flavoursome exterior design that leaves it standing in a class of its own.
If you are on the look out for a massive van that carries business goods all over Australia or if you need to take large groups of people on relaxing jaunts, then this is the van for you.
Born out of the partnership between FIAT and PSA, the New Scudo is the heir to a very successful model. 350 000 units of the old model were sold. The new model is a continuation of a wonderful blend of performance, handling and car-class comfort. A generous and easy loading luggage space makes the big van ideal as a light commercial vehicle. The loading volume and payload of the New Scudo has been increased; and the interior volume is now between 5 and 7 m3. The payload extends from 1000 to 1200 kg. Its loading floor height is an incredibly low 49 cm!
The New Scudo has excellent road behaviour, and the powerful engine makes the drive entertaining. The Fiat Scudo is synonymous with ‘efficiency and productivity’ which, for the customer, translates into very low operating costs. There is good acceleration to be had. The torquey 2.0 litre turbo diesel engine provides elasticity at low speeds – even when the roomy van is heavily laden. With an 88kW power plant, the 120 MultiJet engine delivers sparkling performance, refinement and response. The engine strikes me as being very smooth, and it has a very impressive 3-year/200,000km warranty and 24hour roadside assistance from Fiat Australia. Boy, this would make me very confident in heading down to sign the ownership papers. This kind of guarantee, on its own, would be enough for me. But there is more: the Scudo tops its class in the safety department. The differentiated rigidity of the body shell, new braking systems with 4 disc brakes, ABS, EBD and a driver and passenger airbag, side-bags and curtain-bags, as well as devices to protect the vehicle and the load against theft are available as standard or as optional equipment.
The new Scudo will play a leading role in its segment. The numbers are telling us that the Scudo is always at the top of the list for Europeans in a segment which, with over 450,000 vehicles sold last year, accounts for 23% of the European light commercial vehicle market.
Be confident, and take your business to a new level of excellence with the purchase of a new Fiat Scudo today. Or, if you are in the market for a comfortable and well equipped people mover, the Scudo takes charge.
