Cold Start Diesel -27.5 C Fiat Stilo
Fiat Stilo in the three-door and five-door versions of the body replaced the Fiat Bravo in 2001. The basis of this representative of the golf class is the so-called “flexible” front-drive Fiat platform C-D-H (the same has Alfa-Romeo 147). Several more models were built on the basis of this platform, including the station wagon Stilo.
Model Stilo waited a serious competition. "Golf class", it is a class C - the most saturated segment of the automotive market. Almost all automakers have models of this class. Fiat has always been famous for its supercompacts, but it has long dreamed of trying its hand at a higher grade level.
The car lives up to its name, which, incidentally, comes from the Italian "style". The design of the front of the body is designed in the style of New Edge - the acute-angle headlights and air intakes give the car some element of aggression. Outside, Stilo looks very serious. Massive sidewalls with a clear edge - the transition to the subwindow line, rigid, embossed punching on the hood - everything works on the image of a solid car.
The 5-door version has a wheelbase of 2600 mm (the same as the three-door Stilo), but it is higher (1,510 mm against 1,460 mm) and longer (4,250 against 4,180) three-doors.
Salon has a wide transformation capabilities. In particular, the rear seat folds in parts, with each of them moving back and forth. In addition, the angle of inclination of the backrest changes, and the right front seat is also folded for carrying long loads. The driver's seat has electric adjustments that allow you to quickly find the optimal fit. There is also an adjustment of the lumbar support. The diameter and cross-section of the steering wheel are chosen perfectly. On his needles are located audio control buttons. The instrument panel is very concise and comfortable. The speedometer, the tachometer and the on-board computer display dominate here. On the center console under the ventilation baffles located radio. Not deprived of comfort and rear passengers. There is enough space in the shoulders and for three, the knees do not rest on the backs of the seats, even if they are completely removed. The only problem - the drive mechanism of the hatch "ate" a decent amount of space above the heads.
One of the highlights of this car is the sunroof (option). It consists of several sections that can be moved as you like, one at a time or all together.
It is necessary to note the rather high quality of materials and the carefulness of fitting the mating parts (not without reason from the 900 million euros spent on the creation of Stilo, only 200 million went to the development itself, and 700 million to modernize production).
Adjusting the suspension, the designers found a good compromise between comfort and sportiness. Fiat almost imperceptibly overcomes joints and small irregularities, and serious potholes are almost completely extinguished without a hint of breakdown - the suspension is powerful and energy-intensive.
Since the spring of 2004, sales of updated versions of the Stilo model, offered with three body types, began: a 3- or 5-door hatchback and a wagon (Multiwagon). The appearance of cars has not changed very radically. The main changes affected the "poop." The rear door has been completely redone, the fog lights have been removed - they are now integrated into the updated tail lights. Bumpers and side moldings painted in body color, which gives the car a more elegant look. Thanks to the angular shape of the body, the machine looks more powerful and compact. But despite the external compactness, the five-door Stilo is the longest and highest car in its class.
The model features a wide list of basic and additional equipment, including electric power steering, climate control, electric windows and mirrors, heated seats and washer nozzles, cruise control, parking sensors, an upgraded Connect system, eight airbags and other equipment.

With him, the three-door Stilo has a top speed of 180 km / h. And acceleration to a hundred takes place in 12 seconds with the consumption of gasoline 6.5 liters per 100 km in the combined cycle. The five-door version of a hundred kilometers will require 6.7 liters of gasoline, and the station wagon 6.8 liters. There are also 1.6 liter petrol engines, 1.8 liter R4 16V (133 hp) and 2.4 liter R5 20V (170 hp), installed on versions of Michael Schumacher and Abarth, as well as turbo diesel engines of 1 , 9 l in versions JTD R4 8V (100 hp or 115 hp) or Multijet R4 16V (140 hp). With the latest engine, the three-door model can reach a speed of 203 km / h, and the five-door and station wagon - 200 km / h. At acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h, it is necessary to spend 9.7 seconds, and fuel consumption with such impressive figures is only 5.4 liters per 100 km of diesel in the combined cycle for a three-door hatchback and 5.6 liters for a five-door and wagon.
The choice of gearbox is a 5 or 6-step “mechanic”, or a 4-step “automatic” Selespeed, optional for the Abarth version.
The Stilo Multiwagon wagon is distinguished by a wheelbase increased by up to 2600 mm and a large amount of luggage compartment, varying thanks to a convertible rear seat from 510 to 1480 liters. Plus a lot of different pockets, shelves and drawers. Especially convenient passenger glove box, in which you can turn on the cooling or heating. Gamma engines and equipment are similar to hatchbacks.
Salon is easy to set up for any configuration, and passengers in any case will feel comfortable and comfortable. The rear window of the station wagon can be opened, the seats fold down, access to the inside is even easier than that of a hatchback. Salon immediately gives the impression of solidity. Steering wheel, levers and control buttons at the same time look very easy to use and almost indestructible.

In 2006, the famous Italian automaker Fiat decided to stop the production of the failed model Stilo. The unsuccessful hatchback was replaced by a new model of the golf class - Bravo.
