Just over a month after the start of UK sales, the newly revised Fiat Multipla has won its first UK media award - Facelift of the Year from What MPV & 4x4? Magazine - to add to the many accolades earned by its predecessor.
Multipla’s astonishing haul of UK media awards is testimony to a unique and innovative design, whose application also benefits from fine driving dynamics. Multipla offers on-board comfort for up to six adults in two rows of three full-size individual seats, together with class leading luggage space in a surprisingly compact package, just over four metres in length.
Since its UK introduction four years ago, the remarkable Multipla has received accolades from all quarters of the UK motor industry media. To date, this innovative MPV has won some 14 UK media awards, including BBC Top Gear Magazine and Top Gear TV programme’s Car of the Year 2000 and Best Family Car 2000, 2001 and 2002, Fleet World and Channel 4 Driven’s Best MPV 2000, Auto Express and Diesel Car magazine’s Best Compact MPV 2001, MPV Towcar of the Year 2001, Used Car Buyer magazine’s Best Used MPV and Used Car of the Year 2002 and, in April this year, What MPV and 4x4?’s MPV Mastermind 2004.
Building on these important awards, the new range features an enlarged, six model line-up offering new exterior styling, revised interior trims, new colours and enhanced equipment.
Commenting on this latest award, What MPV and 4x4? editor, Bob Murray says: "It should open the way for many more buyers - good news, for it remains one of the cleverest, as well as one of the best driving, compact MPVs around."
New Multipla is available throughout Fiat Auto’s UK dealer network in either petrol or diesel versions, in three levels of trim, together with a host of dedicated accessories. Like all Fiat cars, Multipla has the added advantage of a comprehensive three-year warranty and roadside service package.
Prices start from £13,295 on the road, and all versions are also available with three years 0% finance and 30% deposit.Published 10 October 2004
