Road Test – Fiat Freemont – 2013

When you talk of Fiat you tend to think of compact urban vehicles.  Cars that are suited for fitting through tight spots and squeezing into parking spaces.

The Fiat Freemont is not that sort of car.  It is a seven seater which is classified as a large SUV.

I think it has as much to do with being a people mover as being an SUV.  It is in fact only available in front wheel drive and, for example, a Fairfax media did a comparison the other day that included the Kia Rhondo, the Peugeot 5008 and the Honda Odyssey  (which are all classified as a people movers) and the Freemont.

But it looks the part of an SUV and perhaps that is what it is all about.

How good is it.  Let’s ask our good friend and elder statesman in motoring journalist Ian Crawford what he thinks.
