Fiat Multipla review! The Fiat Multipla was weird, quirky, and ugly. Today I'm reviewing the Fiat Multipla, and I'll show you all the quirks and features of one of the weirdest and ugliest vehicles you can find -- and it's a VERY quirky one. Then I'll drive the Multipla and review the driving experience of one of the only Fiat Multipla models in North America.

    With the steering wheel on the correct side, I guess this automotive carbuncle was imported to the UK at some point. But yes, this is indeed, the ugliest car ever made; I don't care if it had novel design features or whatever. Even if FIAT had fitted a V12 engine with outrageous horsepower (which they didn't) I'd be embarrassed to have this monstrosity parked outside my house. I'd have to wear a paper bag on my head if I was ever compelled to drive one, just to avoid the public humiliation that would inevitably follow. This is possibly the only car ever made which I can't bear to look at; it reminds me of that unintentional, but nevertheless unavoidable image you might get of some hairy-arsed bricklayer's bum-crack, as you casually walk down the street. It's ugly beyond words. Christ, what were they thinking? I need to have a lie down. Love and peace.

    I'd love to see you do a review of first generation Renault Twingo. And yeah, I just remembered... Multipla is a common taxi here in Belgrade Serbia. In the early mornings you see them lining up near Pančevački bridge where they take groups of people to so called "buvljak" - open air market of cheap consumer goods, in the Friday and Saturday evenings lined in front of popular night clubs.

    You missed the fact that those middle-seats seem to have the back designed to be used as a center armrest, with 2 cupholders and a big tray, when folded, for both, the back and the front, which is pretty cool.

    That's probably the point, to plan, design and produce a car that doesn't look like anything else

    Do your readings, Doug. This car’s ugliness actually has a purpose. The genious metal structure makes it possible to fit 6 people comfortably in this really small body — the weird bump below the windshield is a visible part of that structure.
    BTW, the next work of the designer was the new FIAT 500 that everybody loves. The guy has a taste.

    Snaps on shift boots is quite common.
    About the center seatbelt - that's also a common solution. I think our 2002 Mazda6 Wagon had it that way too. Idea is that you have it tucked away if you rarely use the middle seat.
