Take the badge off the front of most cars today and most people wouldn't have a clue what they were looking at.
You don't need a badge on or off a bug to know what it is.
Front, back, side or rear, there isn't a car even close to it for stand out shape.
It's comfortable, reliable, economical and a pleasure to drive - it's a 6 seater car or a 3 seater van, you've got the best of both worlds.
Yeah, it's got it's bad points, show me a mota without any.
Most of us bug lovers do our own spannerin, so it's become a vocation rather than a chore, I'd even go as far as saying it's therapeutic - the feeling of joy when you've given your baby a new lease of life is a joy to behold.

This theme of individuality is an interesting one. If you go back a few years, you could tell a Bravo in the dark by its "Polo" type rear lights; the same went for its cousin the Brava. If you looked at other marques, such as VW, once the Mk1 Golf and the "Breadvan" Polo had gone, I don't think the Wolfsburg posse had a single interesting design, and, apart from the GTi, their engines were so dull performance was stunted, almost dangerously so, not only that, but they inspired Vauxhall/Opel to plumb similar depths. 1.0 litre VW = 45bhp; 1.2 Corsa = 45bhp; 1.1 Punto = 55bhp; 1.2 Punto = 75bhp

A couple of years ago I was talking to a man at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester and he was on his 2nd Multipla, this one being a Mk2. He loved it because he and his two teenage sons would go camping with three bikes and a tent, plus all the other paraphenalia that camping involved. Everything went inside. In his view, the only car he could replace it with that was roughly the same length was the Honda

Re: FIAT Multipla Uglybug

Seeing as we're here - who saw the matte green and yellow Multipla at Brooklands?

I'll bet he's still embarassed today - and has a wife who comments everytime she sees one! However, it's a good car and a very unique seating and internal space solution. Looks much better with the Idea-type headlamps. Designed after 'he' left
I'm just off to splash cold water on my red face

Re: FIAT Multipla Uglybug

Just to update the list...

I'm now on bug #6 , with a spare bug on the drive, all my previous bugs have gone to good homes. I wouldn't put a good bug down
At the mo, enjoying a fortnights break down the Algarve, wiv 'our kid', after he did his spell of driving he changed his mind about the bug, he now thinks it's a good 'un.
Cheers everyone, keep the bugs alive

Re: FIAT Multipla Uglybug

The day Hellgium allows engine swaps, or Fiat provides the necessary paperwork for it to happen, I'm getting one!
The range of engines and the fact most of them are rundown by now holds me back.

But with a 20v turbo in it? Give me that ugly duckling and take my 2016 Doblo!

Re: FIAT Multipla Uglybug

What was actually the thought/the purpose behind the Multipla look ?
No offence, but from all Fiat cars, this one i dislike the most - because of the mutated appearance

Re: FIAT Multipla Uglybug

The design is inspired by the shape of a pregnant woman, at least that's what's been told to me and I get it.

Re: FIAT Multipla Uglybug

I'm sorry for the 28 guys who voted "cool" . I think it's the worlds most ugliest car ever designed.
I would not drive such a vehicle, even if they gave me one.

Re: FIAT Multipla Uglybug

There are a few cars with iconic names, the Beetle, the Ugly Duck (2CV) on this list is the Multipla for all the wrong reasons. In the Netherlands many referred to this car as "the forbidden M word"
Says it all really,.. Fiat is and especially was known for it's true iconic designs, many of the classic cars being designed by a few designers that quickly went down into history as some of the ultimate car designers. Many other car companies often borrowed these designers to help design their cars.
But I don't know what Fiat was thinking with the Multipla??? I totally understand it's functional aspects but that seems to be it's only primary focus.
