Is this a proper 4x4 equipped 'soft-roader' or another Rover Streetwise style jacked up regular car with too much black body cladding?

That's comical, an ugly wagon with offroad wannabe plastic cladding....

Sadly I must admit this is a meaningless car.<br>Especially for Fiat, that have no money to waste in turning a useless concept into a production model.

It's probably even less convincing looking than Rover's Streetwise was, and that isn't good.<p>Another seemingly pointless move from Fiat, first the introduction of the confused Croma, and now this....

When they presented the Panda 4x4 and the 156 Q4 ( still not on sale btw ) they gloated on how simple, effective and inexpensive the awd system was, i can't see why they didn't fit it on the Stilo. I mean, these type of cars are supposed to get attention to the rest of the line up, i'm not seing this getting any good attention.

The Q4 was initially introduced in september 04, less than a year before the car was replaced, and on a much smaller sales volume car than the Stilo. And i think another of the strong points of the technology used by FIAT is that it is easily adaptable to other cars. <p>But hey, we all agree THIS is pointless <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>

You seem to miss the point.<p>FIAT has overcapacity and can produce more Stilos, but cannot sell them.<p>So just change the springs, add a plastic cover , both have VERY VERY small cost<br>and even if you sell 1-5% more cars, you've made an extra profit... which they need<br>to develop the new Stilo, They are not going to spend more money on this Stilo.<p>The premium of the Uproad is about 1000 Euros compared to the normal version<br>and if you just want a spacious car that is not expensive and just gets the job done,<br>there you are, The new FIAT Stilo Uproad<p><BR><BR>

Fiat's main problem with the Stilo is that there are many, many far more capable cars available for similar or even less money. There's nothing a Stilo SW with black plastic body cladding can do to remedy that situation.
