The start point for the best source of fleet information

Fiat Sedici 4x4 1.6 16v

Date: 05 July 2006

£13,307

What's new

We try the range-topping Eleganza version of the Fiat -Suzuki developed small 4x4. Trim adds alloys, body coloured mirrors and metallic guards for those off-road excursions.

Excellent

A simple button offers the choice of 2wd, auto 4wd and a diff lock, far better than an array of levers.

Good

Suzuki builds it (Sedici is sister car to the Suzuki SX4) and quality on our car was fine. Un-4x4-like 39.8mpg is impressive. Copes well with mild off-roading.

Average

Interior lacks flair, feeling cheap and plasticky, although at least everything is easy to use. Road-biased Sedici handles okay.

Poor

The engine isn't the Sedici's strong point, it needs to be worked very hard to deliver what's fairly modest performance.

Verdict

Sedici should be a cheap 4x4 to run with a cpm of just 28.3ppm, although diesel will probably be a better engine to live with.
