Used Fiat Sedici (2006 - 2011) Review

3.5
It may be called the Sedici (Italian for 16 - in reference to its 4x4 system), but this small Fiat isn't a hardcore all terrain car. True, most models come with four-wheel drive as standard, but it is designed to primarily be a small and practical family car with some off-road ability - ideal for tackling muddy inclines and dusty gravel paths.

Fiat Sedici (06-11)
Well built cabin, surprising off-road ability, comfortable ride, available in two or four-wheel drive
Petrol engine needs to be worked hard, ordinary styling, noisy at speed

£10,355 - £16,470

It may be called the Sedici (Italian for 16 - in reference to its 4x4 system), but this small Fiat isn't a hardcore all terrain car. True, most models come with four-wheel drive as standard, but it is designed to primarily be a small and practical family car with some off-road ability - ideal for tackling muddy inclines and dusty gravel paths. It's actually a joint project with Suzuki (which builds the virtually identical Sedici in the same factory) and is well put together with a comfortable and neat cabin.

It isn't the most striking car to look at, but its small size makes it easy to drive and the 1.9-litre MultiJet diesel offers good economy.

What owners say...

 Good space and the four wheel drive system is excellent in wintry conditions. It is no heavy off roader but is ample for rural area's. A far more practical choice than the Chelsea Tractors parked...

 The driving position, the handling is great for a higher positioned car.

 4X4 when you need it, selected via a switch. The transmission can be locked for more extreme weather conditions or the 4X4 will come in when required, or as used most of the time in normal front wheel...
