What Car? says

1 out of 5 stars

For Decent styling and handling; good engines

Against The load bay is short and the ride is poor

Verdict Its rivals do just about everything better

Go for… 1.9 JTD

Avoid… 1.6 petrol

Fiat Marea Estate
  • 1. Watch for any signs of overheating, such as a milky emulsion inside the oil filler cap
  • 2. The suspension and axles are a common cause of problems
  • 3. The load bay is shorter than most rival estates' and sitting three in the back is a tight squeeze
  • 4. Be suspicious of any engine that doesn't rev consistently, has trouble starting or sounds rough. This could be a sign of an iffy fuel system
  • 5. Catalytic converters can fail and are dear to replace
