Fiat Stilo Overview
The Fiat Stilo is classed as a small family car and was produced by the Italian car manufacturing company Fiat Motors from 2001-07. This car was designed as a replacement for the Bravo/Brava range in 2001 and was replaced by the new Bravo in 2007. The Fiat Stilo is a very cheap option in the small family car class and is very spacious inside, especially the 5-door version. These cars are pretty basic and are not as refined as some of the class competitors.
Fiat Stilo History
From its introduction in 2001, the Stilo received much criticism in regards to the design and the mechanics of the car. The design was said to be too basic compared with its predecessor and the new suspension system was criticised for making the car a poor drive and not too good handling. There were also a lot of other criticisms, but it was the first car to use the TRW electro power assisted steering, which would become popular on other cars of the class.
In 2006 this car had a bit of a makeover which affected the grille design and some interior alterations. The Fiat Stilo never seemed to take off in popularity, and despite some real sales efforts from Fiat, the car was discontinued in 2007 and replaced with the new Fiat Bravo.
There were a number of different engines available for this car. The petrol engines were 1.2, 1.4, 1.6, 1.8 and 2.4L, and the diesel option was 1.9L. The most economical of the available engines was the 1.9 diesel with up to 53 mpg. The best petrol engine was the 1.2 which offered up to 44mpg. Consider the fuel type, engine size and age of the vehicle when thinking fuel economy.
There were 5 and 6-speed manual gearboxes available for the Fiat Stilo, as well as a 5-speed selespeed electro-hydraulic semi-automatic gearbox. We have a section of our website dedicated to the Fiat gearbox parts, where you can find your Stilo gearbox parts.
