Eerrrm, how did a the Fiat MPV get amongst that? Wife's car or did someone pay you to be seen in it?
I owned the 156 saloon, but having struggled to get a pram in through the small boot opening and then not being able to get anything else inside also, I decided to get a large, safe and practical estate car. The first thing that jumps into mind is a Volvo, so I duly purchased an 850 GLT estate, boy what an unreliable, smelly heap of ill handling junk it was, so 3 months later (it took that long to repair it ready for sale) it was gone.
At this point I thought I'm not buying anything other than an Italian car, so as only 2 people carriers were available to me I chose the Multipla over the Ulysses (as that car was a standard boring car).
The Fiat Multipla on the other hand is the same length as a Ford Focus but as wide as a Transit van, plus with a wheel at each corner it handled fantastically, it was only lacking in power as I had purchased one of the very first imported into the country, and as such it only had 105bhp!
I love the looks of these weird machines (both inside and out) and if you ever get the chance to even SIT in one, then do so, as they are one of the only true design classics of the modern era, bar none!
IF YOU DON'T GET THE LOOKS, THEN YOU DON'T GET IT!
(Yes you would be right in thinking that I love these cars)
