Fiat Auto’s new mid-size Stilo MP Wagon, together with the new Ulysse people carrier, will be making their UK public debuts at the British International Motor Show in October, prior to going on sale here early next year.
The new Fiat Stilo MP Wagon, which will become available with two petrol and two JTD diesel engine options, will be represented on the stand in left-hand drive form. Like the 3 and 5-door Stilo hatchback, the newcomer possesses all the latest safety equipment, including up to eight airbags, six of which are standard equipment. There are disc brakes all-round, and ABS anti-lock braking with ASR is part of a rich standard specification.
The spacious luggage compartment features a low loading height and an innovative rear window that opens independently of the tailgate; while the front seat folds down and the two rear seats can slide backwards and forwards and recline independently to maximise legroom, loadspace and comfort.
The new Fiat Ulysse will also become available here early next year with four engine options, two petrol units and two common rail direct injection (JTD) turbodiesels. It is also equipped with a series of safety, comfort and telematics systems that put it at the top of its category in terms of interior space, comfort and application flexibility. Two examples will be on display – a 109 bhp 2.0 petrol and a 128 bhp 2.2 JTD version.
Elsewhere on the stand, Fiat Auto will also be exhibiting the Seicento city car, Punto supermini, the award-winning Doblò MPV and the unique six-seater Multipla MPV, along with a selection of Stilo mid-size hatchbacks, and a left-hand drive Barchetta sportscar.Published 4 October 2002
