The Fiat Multipla Was an Incredibly Quirky (and Ugly) Family Car


Fiat Multipla review! The Fiat Multipla was weird, quirky, and ugly. Today I'm reviewing the Fiat Multipla, and I'll show you all the quirks and features of one of the weirdest and ugliest vehicles you can find -- and it's a VERY quirky one. Then I'll drive the Multipla and review the driving experience of one of the only Fiat Multipla models in North America.

    Brilliant piece of 90s bio-design, concept-car looking Multipla.

    It's also cool because it's one of a few passenger cars that has engine which is very easy to transform it into CNG-gas powered one. That makes it a little bit more eco-friendly than diesel or gasoline.

    What's the difference between Multipla and a brothel? Not much. You feel fine when you're inside, but feel embarassed when people see you coming out.

    You forgot to tell that you can take al the seats completely out. That gives A LOT of space extra.

    While the original Multipla design was butt ugly, I honestly prefer it to the unfathomable blandness of the refresh.

    Like everyone, I find it pretty ugly. sort of bothers my OCD with how the front is with the tall roof. But for purely practicality, I could drive one. Really unique, very usable, only downside is I believe it's front wheel drive so not the best for winter, but not terrible. I'd own one for the right price.

    I always liked the Multipla's oddness . But this is the first time I've watched Doug and he seems to be a bit borderline hysterical ...a bit like that other American bloke Scotty Kilmer. Is this a national requirement for presenters to be 'emotionally edging' ?

    I saw one of these in the flesh in Florence when I was travelling back in 1999 - it was a spaceship and jsut so bloody cool. It’s still cool, has aged really well. Wasn’t another forgettable clone - aesthetics is subjective, but the worst sin in car design is to be boring and derivative.

    Seeing the Isuzu VehiCross has the same styling score as the Multipla is wrong. just wrong. Too low a score for the VehiCross and too high a score for the Multipla. Absolutely not on the same level.

  • WakaLlord

    I'm relatively certain that most of the control layout quirks (mirror controls on ceiling, no rear window controls up front, putting everything in the center stack) is to reduce costs when making a left and right hand drive version of the car, especially since it was only going to be sold in Europe.

    As a Brit I feel I must apologise on behalf of Italy. We tried to stop the multipla getting over the pond, but looks like one got thru😀 I wonder why they didn’t put a vertical parking brake by the gear shifter? Another car with all the instruments in the middle was the first & 2nd gen Toyota Yaris. The only element of the multipla I would like on my Honda jazz (you know it as the Honda Fit) is the extra side mirror extension.

    I have owned one for 3 years, late 2003 before restyling. It was the ugliest car that I ever had owned but also the best one. It was like you drive aquarium upside down. The side mirror's are the best of because of those smaller one for dead angles. Hi beams are like you have the day light in front of you just because they are so high up. I had diesel and I was punchy enough for that car. There was so many funny situations with multipla it would take all day to tell it. But the best one is that I sold it for 50 euros more that I paid it. Thanks Doug for this video, and I am so glad that you love it ina same way as I did. Quirky but great. Multipla the only real family car, all the rest are just vehicles.

    Despite the fact that the Multipla looks like a spaceship with upholstery that's the same colour as a Nintendo GameCube, I think it's the perfect car for young petrolheads who want their first car to be as practical as can be. I even want one myself as I've been in one before.

    We owned a Mulipla - it was a terrific family car. But is was controversial in its looks. When my wife drove ours to the Supermarket for the first time she returned to the car to discover someone had left a note under the windscreen wiper - the note said 'Idiot'. This is a wonderful car!
