Fiat Stilo details:
The Fiat Stilo is a small family vehicle manufactured by the Italian manufacturer Fiat since 2001. The Fiat Stilo was represented in 2001 to replace the Fiat Bravo/brava.
It is available in both 3- and 5-door hatchback versions, as well as a station wagon named "stilo Multiwagon". Originally, its petrol engines were the 1242 cc DOHC 16 valve motor also powering the Punto and Lancia Ypsilon with an output of 80 bhp (60 Kw) combined with a 6 speed manual gearbox, a 103 bhp (77 Kw), 1. 6 L with a 5 speed manual gearbox, a 133 bhp (98 Kw), 1. 8 L, again with a 5 speed manual gearbox and a 170 bhp (127 Kw), 5 cylinder, 2. 4 L motor combined with Fiat's Selespeed 5 speed semi-automatic gearbox, also used on the Alfa Romeo 147. The 2. 4 L motor was reserved for the hatchback versions.
The Fiat Stilo's look-and-feel received mixed reviews, with many journalists and enthusiasts criticising it as being too bland and too German-looking. Critics also attacked the car's excessive weight and its semi-rigid back axle, which was seen as a step backwards from the acclaimed set-up used in the Bravo/brava and which resulted in handling many found uninspired and uninvolving. The motor range, particularly the 1. 2 and 1. 6 petrol units, was also criticised for being underpowered. The car's fuel efficiency was also seen as poor for its class, a result of the car's heavy weight and the transmission, which used very long gear ratios. Another point of criticism was the Selespeed gearbox, which was seen as too slow in its reactions and particularly inappropriate for the high-powered Abarth version. Nevertheless, the vehicle won applause for its high levels of grip (aided by the unusually wide tires) and its brakes.
