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.

  • Since seeing this review I had to put a car into storage..., so in the market for another car. As I get older, automotive looks don't matter so much, if I want something stylish, quick, and fun, I'll hire a supercar on a track day. I looked into the UK right hand drive multiplas (both styling versions) and there aren't many to go round any more. most of those that are local to where I am (london+south east england) have been converted to be wheelchair accessible from the rear for both disabled passengers and drivers. which in my opinion is brilliant indeed. Pretty sure you, Doug will have no problem finding one in LHD from continental europe.

  • i can already tell the interior has the quality of mcdonalds plastic

  • The climate control area looks like it's shaped like Lumpy space Princess. Lol

  • Does one really need to be contrarian to think these are cool looking? Throw a set of cool rims on it, an eye-catching wrap, and this would be a slick ride.

  • You should review the citroen 2cv. Talk about weird

  • It's like a Fiat got the mumps and then never got better.

  • Weird

  • It's easy to get in and out of you know!

  • my late grandfather used to own a multipla, it was so comfortable inside you can't imagine, then when he got too old to drive it he passed it to my aunt, she enjoyed every second of owning it until the engine blew up and she got it scrapped

  • It's not purple, it's blue.

  • Which car was that at 0:40 ?

  • It's a fantastic car, much better than many others now. The engine is almost perfect and very comfortable. Ugly? No! So special. Yesterday we tested a second 2008 diesel series. Oh my God, such a good machine !! We bought it for almost nothing!! Nice video, thanks!!

  • Can someone make a compilation of him saying this

  • Everytime he says "this" makes my day hahahah

  • As a European, please take all of them

  • Some say it looks like a fat person's foot in a shoe that's too small.

  • *1 million views!* 🎉

  • I love how it looks it is unique.

  • Little known fact is that the original concept drawing was done by the CEO of Fiat's five year old daughter. Probably.

  • Great car. The newer version looks like it corrects some of its visual issues.

  • does anyone know what the green car is in the back @ 5:14

  • Europe is always weird, sketchy and scuffed

  • Mas bonito que cualquier SUV

  • gotta be honest, if i had one of these i’d be driving around all night with my hi beams on 😂

  • So now we know where inspiration for the "Cube" came from....

  • And I thought Italy was known for good looking things

  • Back seats can slide forward and make bigger cargo area. Also, they made it with 6 seats because it was designed to be a taxi and that's the most car seats you're allowed to have in a taxi in most EU countries. This is a great car, interior doesn't age very good but everything else is great.

  • Polacy uwielbiają ten samochód xD

  • I'm only halfway through the review and I can already tell we have a Douggos award winner.

  • It's ugliness equally matches the bravery of Fiat greater than any other car manufacturer. And that is why it deserves respect. Secondly, the Multipla looks are dictated by practical applications, no fake bullshit just for show. And when you discover all it's practical applications you will see just how ahead of its time it was. Making any fun about this car will die completely when very soon they will become collectible by serious car lovers and prices of mint examples will shoot up.

  • It's NOT ugly, it's incredibly beautiful.

  • That dash panel is almost the equivalent of 4 o'clock traffic. Yikes. Practically speaking, what made them think this was a good idea? The whole vehicle. Nobody looked at the concept art and thought something might be wrong? There are times when people should say 'no' and that was one of those times.

  • Honda frv was also a 6 seater!..

  • They used to be dumped everywhere here in the UK.

  • Have you driven an Opel Tigra? I have 2 here in Mexico where they (Chevrolet) only imported 500 from Europe in 1999.

  • and i thought that a 1997 dodge ram was ugly

  • So happy for you to be happy in it. It happens I do like it too. At the same I do understand the vehicle mission. I think it is a very interesting design, very clever. In it’s own segment. Let’s remember this is not a super car, this is a car with a specific mission. Do well.

  • Fim pelo @carrochefe

  • The Weirdness of This Car has more Personality than any Modern Car Nowadays

  • Shitposting in car form

  • Was?! It still is

  • wow wow wow how did the fiat get son weird?

  • I just noticed the middle car seats hava a large plate on the rears and 4 cup holders. so id imagine normal use you would have it down so that the driver has a cup holder.

  • Anybody else notice how he used the word “new” again for his auction website?

  • Never judge a car by it’s looks

  • It seems to have been imported from the UK (does anyone know why?), as there's an empty car tax disc holder in the bottom left of the windscreen/windshield. (Printed paper tax discs were abolished a few years ago.)

  • It looks like a small hatchback fell hard on another car and stuck to it hard. It's ghastly.....like soul sucking , demon scaring ugly. If there was a competition between the Nissan juke and this for ugliest car...the multipla would win hands down.

  • wow, just looking at the dashboard gives me headache

  • It kinda reminds me of a Tesla

  • This dreadful car its bought by the stupid people that continue to buy Fiat cars because they think are Italian crafts

  • I think that the multipla was designed by the son of Fiat director lol

  • Doug, please find a Fiat Coupè Turbo to review, I love this car!

  • Why is it a right hand model?

  • The interior was BLUE not purple (Fiat did this in a lot of 90's and 2000's cars because the Fiat logo was blue at the time)... But over the years, of course the fabric ends up changing it's color having contact with sun, heat and grease from the skin of the people who rode in the car...

  • You can't even pay people to drive this.

  • I love this car.

  • Petition for Doug to actually go ahead and buy this car in a year!

  • Makes it cheaper for right hand or left hand drive Manufacturing

  • I think the designer of the body of that car was high on crack when he did it

  • I remember in top-tier Jeremy Clarkson blue one up

  • Every single thing is weird about this car. It's like it's been built by aliens. I laughed so much man 😂

  • 22:54 is the green car an NSU 1000TT or a 1200C SS ?

  • 17:12 The handbrake isn’t really a problem for Europeans since we don’t have big fat burger-chugging arms that wouldn’t fit between the door and the seat

  • We did a song dedicated to the Fiat Multipla! If that tells you to check out the title, here is the listen link: cs-tv.org/tv/video-VwMEHzJfd9o.html

  • Whats the car on the cars and bids ad?

  • That's indigo, not purple.

  • The guy in the video is so obnoxiously animated I want to punch myself.

  • *THIS* is the quirky content I've been looking for

  • Pürple

  • 'Function over form'

  • Looks better in hearing aide brown

  • I think it looks awesome and there was a 6 door version!!

  • What is that car in the "Cars And BIds" section of the video. Its looks interesting.

  • You look like an excited adolescent boy who saw an "ugly" car. Seriously? The claim that Multipla is ugly is so repetitive and stupid. Multipla arouses emotions. It is one of a kind. Do you want to see an ugly car? See Renault Thalia.

  • Holy Toledo this thing takes fugly to the next level, looks like a fucking car on top of another one, actually no, i got it,this was a prototype that went straight into production and bypassed upper management, thats it.

  • It's weird that doug is more excited in multipla rather than in supercar

  • The huge windows are to show the unaware driver

  • "fiÁt"

  • Doug the only person on the planet that likes the multipla.

  • Idk how big smoking is where this was sold but getting ash in the shift boot isn't the easiest to clean that might be the reasoning behind it

  • It really is the ugliest car of all time, But I still think it's that ugliness that makes me actually enjoy its styling. Its just so damn weird

  • You dig up the coolest cars and do such a great job presenting them. I was a traveling business systems professor who could not teach nearly as well as you do about tech, which cars are. I think this car is "ugly eccentric", which is what quirky cars are. Today's modern cars are cookie cutter and at a distance, it is nearly impossible to tell a BMW from a Mercedes, from a Lexus to a Camry or a Corolla in styling. I love some of the older car designs, though they had their interior faults, like the AMC Pacer, Pontiac Aztec, Dodge Neon, Ford Maverick, Dodge K Car, because one could distinguish one from the other compared to the similarity now found in many contemporary cars and SUV's. EV's are now allowing new possibilities in auto design. My favorite cars in terms of styling were the Ford Probe, and the 80's incarnation of the Camaro and Firebird, sedan wise I loved the Dodge cab forward designs which had more glass area than modern cars of today. Good review, keep 'em comin'!

  • cool larc in the intro larc is a big amphibious truck

  • They put a Multipla into a museum... ARE THEY INSANE!?

  • Call me crazy but I see that Multipla as cute and pretty.

  • im disappointed he didn't address the strange vent with a horizontal slit through the lower half of it and what appears to be a tiny light right above the radio. doesn't appear to be part of the AC but i could be wrong

  • I've seen a lot of doug videos and I don't think he's ever been this excited.

  • i cant imagine seeing this on US streets

  • it looks like someone mixed a dodge neon and a dodge caravan together and made the multipla

  • This "car" reminds one of those "super cool" skins from Windows Player on Windows XP.

  • It was designed by Disney

  • As a Brit, I find it amusing how happy it made you to drive this piece of shit XD

  • yes it is ugly car 🤣 but because of that is unique

  • in german we say : FIAT - Fehler in allen Teilen [error in all parts] i like your clips

  • 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.

  • Doug review the blue Citroen Ami 8, the 2cv, Citroen GS and how about that Renault 5 turbo type 2

  • It's hideous. I hate it.

  • If Doug’s personality was a physical object, this is what it would look like.

  • 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.
