For The Fiat Qubo has plenty of space for four and their luggage, so it’s very practical for such a small car. The ride is pretty smooth, too.
Against The kids will get annoyed that the rear windows don't open fully, and it lacks too much safety kit. The long tailgate could prove to be a pain as well.
What Car? says
The Fiat Qubo is a genuinely useful mini-MPV with cleverly used space and some neat touches. Some may be put off by the awkward looks, though.

Buyers choose from a 1.4 petrol with 72bhp or one of two 1.3 turbodiesels with either 74bhp or 94bhp. We haven’t driven the lower-powered diesel, but the stronger unit it reasonably flexible, even if it’s not particularly fast. The petrol is slower still, but it’s just strong enough and it keeps the Qubo cheap. That’s why it’s our favourite.
There are three trims to choose from. Entry-level Active gets electric front windows, remote central locking and a CD stereo, while our favourite MyLife model adds air-conditioning, a leather steering wheel with audio controls, an MP3 socket, Bluetooth and alloy wheels. The Trekking model gives the car a 4x4-style makeover, but no four-wheel drive – just an upgraded traction control system.
