Alternatively, there's a 2.0-litre Multijet diesel engine with 145hp, and you can choose between a manual or an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Fiat Scudo Interior

Regardless of your choice of powertrain, drivers will find the car-like driving position appealing while on the move. The ride quality is notably good, thanks to load adaptive variable damping shock absorbers. This system adjusts the damping based on the vehicle's ride height. High-end variants come equipped with camera-driven features such as speed limit recognition, lane departure warning, Side Blind Spot Alert, and Driver Attention Alert systems. Additionally, there's an intelligent 'Intelligent Speed Adaptation' system that allows you to maintain a consistent speed during cruise control.

Overall, the new Fiat Scudo proves to be a highly capable van with a variety of efficient powertrain options. Its ease of driving, characterized by car-like handling and a comfortable ride, makes it an excellent choice for leasing.
