For a 1.2 reasonable power, just been driving v-astra 1.6 and the stilo has more torque.
Good fuel 45-50 on a longer run (average speed 45-50)this is what your average speed is, taking all the stops and starts.
Never had any trouble starting or running. It does show up temporary fault warnings due to dampness,(usually when parked at odd angles) unless thay stay on you just ignore them.
Good seats good comfort. They are cheap to buy compared to some equivelents but continue to depreciate. This 3… Read Full Review

How do I begin? We have had nothing but problems since buying the Stilo due to the computer continually throwing up engine fault codes which no garage, including the Fiat Dealer, seem able to diagnose. We are continually throwing good money after bad! This engine fault code system is a huge con - yes, we can take the car to independent garages but their equipment cannot diagnose all the fault codes - we have to take the car to a Fiat Dealership who then charge £70 just to clear the fault codes… Read Full Review

Having enjoyed three years of trouble free motoring with my Fiat Stilo Active Air Con 1.2 5dr, I was looking forward to p/e for a new Stilo. P/e values quoted by 2 Fiat garages I went too were absolutely ridiculous. Sums quoted were 50% of the marked price of similar models on their fore court with much higher mileage than mine. I'm afraid Fiat cars are a no-no from now on… Read Full Review

Since buying the Fiat Stilo I have become more and more attached to it. I think it is a great family car - it's not a racy, pacy type of vehicle, but in terms of comfort, handling and everything else I find it to be great!… Read Full Review

Spacious, comfortable and well thought out but too many faults to recommend the Fiat Stilo Active. Problems not helped by attitude of Fiat main dealer. Took threats of legal action and solicitors letters to get the faults fixed.
Feed back on other sites says later models 1.4 upwards (Stilo Mk2) are a lot better. They need to be… Read Full Review

I have owned the Fiat Stilo Active for 2 months and it has spent more time in the garage than on the road, the computer management lights come on at will, the fuel consumption is obscene, and the car is grossly under powered. Is this why they only produce the 1.4 version now?… Read Full Review
