The new Stilo Multi Wagon goes on sale in the UK on Saturday 15 February, completing the Stilo range first introduced here in the spring of 2002.
More than just a standard estate car variant, the new car’s seating flexibility and all-round versatility combine the appeal of the popular MPV format with superior driving dynamics, and one of the most spacious luggage compartments in its class.
With a model line-up embracing three trim levels – Active, Active Air Conditioning, and Dynamic – four engine options, and priced from just £12,095 to £14,395 on-the-road, the Fiat Stilo Multi Wagon benefits from the high-tech specifications, unrivalled safety and outstanding value for money of the current Stilo range. Its generous 510 litre luggage compartment – expanding to 1480 litres with the rear seats folded down – will appeal specifically to families, those who use their car for business purposes, and people who need more interior space for leisure pursuits.
The new Stilo Multi Wagon is taller than the Stilo 5-door hatchback – a feature that allows the driver’s seat to be raised so as to provide easier access, greater comfort and improved, all-round visibility.
Convenient access and interior flexibility have been a design priority. The 60/40 split rear seats can both slide backwards and forwards, and recline, independently. The front passenger seat also folds flat to maximise loadspace.
The Multi Wagon’s luggage compartment has flat sill access, and the lowest loading height in its class. Minimal wheel arch intrusion creates a regular shaped boot lining and ensures that all available space can be used to the full. The tailgate opens to above adult head-height and incorporates an independently hinged rear window.
The new car’s comprehensive equipment levels correspond to those of the Active and Dynamic Stilo hatchbacks, including Air Con; a new model addition offering air conditioning for just £300.
All models come with Dualdrive electronic power steering, central locking with deadlocks, electric front windows, four airbags, a six-speaker stereo, ABS anti-lock brakes with EBD, multi-function remote control central locking, and ‘My Car’ personalisation of the car’s functions.
