About Fiat Scudo

Fiat

Specifications

The Scudo comes with a choice of 1.6 litre or 2.0 litre diesel engines. The smaller engine offers a power output of 90bhp, and the larger comes in two states of tune which produce either 130bhp or 163bhp. There are various body options, and not all engine choices are available for all body sizes. The smaller engine comes with a five-speed manual gearbox, while the 2.0 litre benefits from a six-speed box.

There are three different height and length configurations available. The smallest offers five cubic metres of loading space. The mid-sized option extends this to six cubic metres by increasing the length. The largest adds extra height, upping the overall volume to seven cubic metres. Payloads range from just under a thousand kilograms - 996kg to be precise - to 1,212kg.

There are a lot of features available for the Scudo, but many of these are options at additional cost rather than as standard, and some are not available for all body types. Standard features are limited to such basics as power steering, central locking and electric windows. Examples of options include stability control, multiple airbags, air suspension and automatic control of both wipers and headlights.

Scudo

Positives and Negatives

The Fiat Scudo is roomy and capable of handling some pretty hefty payloads. It is not exactly best-in-class on either count, but it is still capable of handling quite a lot of stuff for a van in a fairly small size group. The choice of body sizes gives a nice element of versatility in choosing exactly how much carrying capacity you need.

Performance depends heavily on your choice of engine. The 1.6 litre is capable enough but is frankly rather lacking. It feels like an engine that should have been put in a smaller vehicle, lacking the power to sustain high speeds without being pushed hard and struggling to cope with heavy loads. This engine, which is only available on the smallest version of the Scudo, is adequate for town driving but a poor choice for longer distances. That it struggles to cope with the vehicle it has been placed in is shown by the fact it does not deliver any significant saving in fuel consumption over the larger engine.

Either of the 2.0 litre configurations is an entirely different affair. These engines accelerate well even with full loads and maintain motorway speeds comfortably without being pushed to excessive revs.

Aside from the lack of power on the 1.6 litre engine, driving any version of the Scudo is a delight. It handles extremely well and has a tight turning circle. Standard suspension is very good, and the optional air suspension is even better.

The range of features on offer is not massively extensive, but there are some nice useful features. It is a shame, however, that so few are included as standard. At least a few options will likely be necessary to make it measure up to most of the competition in this regard.

Conclusion

The Fiat Scudo is not the best van of its type, but this does not mean that it is even remotely bad. In fact, it is good in many ways. Add competitive pricing and a reputation for reliability - barring a couple of specific issues that can affect power steering and fuel pumps - there are doubtless many van operators out there for whom this will prove a good choice.

Launch of Original First Generation Scudo

Launched a year or two after the Citroen Dispatch and Peugeot Expert, the Fiat differed from the Frencch twins as the company used their own engines.

Petrol power came initially from a 79PS 1.6 litre 8V Fiat unit. 1.9 diesel was from PSA at 69PS and 92PS.
