Fiat Scudo review (2022)

Overall Rating: 0/10
Fiat Scudo interior

You might have head of the Fiat Scudo before but this new van is nothing like the old one.

The previous generation Scudo was probably the last of the truly bad vans on the market which might sound harsh, but is well justified. It looked hideous, the interior was made of rubbish plastics and the engines were underpowered and uneconomical. Worst of all, the steering wheel and pedals really didn’t even try to line-up, they were in different postcodes, so it was a really uncomfortable van.

This new model is totally different. Like the previous mid-sized Fiat van, the Fiat Talento, the Fiat Scudo is based on the Citroen Dispatch and Peugeot Expert. The Fiat Talento was based on the Renault Trafic, while the previous Fiat Scudo was again based on French vans.

Times have changes and the new Fiat Scudo now also shares its DNA with the Vauxhall Vivaro and Toyota Proace. It is five vans in one then, but a van that is amongst the best in class.

Power comes from a choice of two different output engines with a total of four power outputs. You can have a Fiat Scudo with a 1.5-litre engine with either 100hp or 120hp – that will be paired to a 6-speed manual transmission, or you can have a 2-litre engine with 145h or 180hp. The 145hp engine gets the choice between a manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic gearbox, while the 180hp Scudo is only available with an 8-speed auto.

If you’re looking for something a little greener, there’s also an electric Fiat E-Scudo with a 205-mile range.

What equipment does the Scudo get?

The Fiat Scudo is available as a panel van, crew cab and platform chassis cab.

The van also has an advanced notification systems for obstacles with frontal collision warning. For reversing, there’s a 180° panoramic rear-view camera.

There are a choice of three trim levels in the Scudo which starts with entry-level SX, mid-range Tecnico top-spec Business.
There’s been a significant increase in the safety systems added to the van. The new Scudo now has 14 ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) under its belt. These include automatic road sign recognition, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and blind spot alert.

Need to go off-road? The Fiat Scudo can also be had with a Grip Control system for gravel, rocks or even snow.

How practical is the Fiat Scudo?

The Fiat Scudo has an overall height of 1.90m with a of 5m for the standard van and 5.3m for the Maxi version. That enables the Fiat Scudo to have a 6.6m3 loading bay volume with a payload of up to 1-tonne.  The Fiat Scudo’s towing capacity is 1-tonne.

Standard load volumes are 5.3 cubic metres or 6.1 cubic metres depending on the wheelbase of the van, but these increase by 0.5m3 with the Moduwork load-though compartment. This transforms the passenger seat into a workstation and an extension of the load compartment. It also means that up to 4m lengths can be transported in the Maxi version of the vans.

Pricing for the Fiat Scudo starts from £25,750.
