Our 2022 Fiat Scudo Review

Our 2022 Fiat Scudo Review

Fancy leasing a Fiat Scudo?

The Fiat Scudo may be a name you are familiar with, but the new van is not the same as the previous one. Although it may sound harsh, the previous generation Scudo was likely the last truly subpar van on the market. It had a horrible appearance, a cheap plastic interior, and underpowered, inefficient engines. The worst part was that the pedals and steering wheel hardly even tried to match up because they were in separate postcodes. The van was quite uncomfortable.

This Fiat Scudo review will cover every component of this medium-sized van that you should be aware of before you decide to lease. 

Fiat Scudo Drive

The Scudo is a blatant imitation of its brothers, but because they are all top-notch vans, this is not a negative thing. The Fiat Scudo can handle both thrilling and interesting driving experiences as well as relaxing trips where you just want to arrive at your destination in comfort.

There are two distinct output engines to choose from, totalling four possible power outputs. A Fiat Scudo is available with either a 1.5-litre engine with 100 or 120 horsepower, coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission, or a 2-litre engine with 145 or 180 horsepower. Manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic transmission is available for the 145 horsepower engine, however only an 8-speed automatic is offered for the 180 horsepower Scudo. There is also an electric Fiat E-Scudo SWB and LWB with a 205-mile range if you're searching for something a little greener.

The bigger 2-litre engines are preferred over the smaller 1.5-liter ones for the simple reason that they offer more gearbox options. Even while the 100hp and 120hp engines are both adequate if you don't want to operate at full weight all the time, the 2-litre feels more at ease conducting business. The 180 horsepower is the faster of the two power outputs, but the 145 horsepower is a better choice if you don't need much power.

Fiat Scudo Interior 

The panel van, crew cab, and platform chassis cab versions of the Fiat Scudo are all available. The vehicle also boasts a sophisticated obstacle notification system with a frontal crash warning. There is also a 180° panoramic rear-view camera for backing up. The van now has a significantly greater number of safety systems. 14 ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) are now standard on the new Scudo. These include lane departure warnings, automatic emergency braking, blind spot alert, and automatic road sign recognition.

The Scudo comes in three trim levels: SX, Tecnico, and Business, with Business being the highest trim level available.

Fiat Scudo Space 

The Fiat Scudo has a total height of 1.90m, with a standard van height of 5m and a Maxi height of 5.3m. As a result, the Fiat Scudo has a 6.6m3 loading bay volume and a payload capacity of up to one tonne. The Fiat Scudo has a towing capacity of one tonne.

Depending on the van's wheelbase, standard load volumes are 5.3 or 6.1 cubic metres. However, adding the Moduwork load-through compartment increases these volumes by 0.5 metres. As a result, the passenger seat is made into a workstation and an addition to the cargo area. Additionally, it implies that the vans' Maxi version can haul lengths up to 4 metres.
