The Fiat Ducato is a van built for large volumes. It comes in a range of options with 3 wheelbases, 4 lengths and 3 heights to choose from, with the load volume ranging from 8m3 to an impressive 17m3. This van doesn’t compromise on power either, with a payload of up to 2200kg.
The Ducato comes with Bluetooth radio as standard, and additional options include UConnect radio with a 5” touchscreen display and SatNav. Outside of the cab, the technology in the Ducato is centred around both performance and safety. Servotronic power steering comes as standard, while cruise control keeps you at a consistent speed, perfect for long motorway journeys. Some options are also fitted with a Speed Limiter, to ensure you don’t go over your maximum speed by accident.
Another great safety feature is the Ducato’s Lane Departure Warning System which is designed to alert you to involuntary movements while the vehicle is travelling over 37 MPH. Meanwhile rear parking sensors and a rear camera take the hassle out of reversing and parking.
The engines in the Ducato are all MultiJet2 Euro 6, and the smallest has an already impressive horse power of 115, going up to 150 in the largest engine. It’s also cost-effective, with the lowest emmissions of its class at up to 47.9 MPG and an excellent air penetration coefficient for improved performance and reduced consumption.
The new Doblo Cargo is filled with a load of improvements and new features, both on the inside and outside. The best in class load capacity, this van has a volume ranging from 3.4 to 5.0m3, and a payload of up to 1005kg.
Inside the cabin, extra effort has been taken to ensure the Doblo keeps its passengers comfortable and entertained. The high quality materials minimise outside road noise coming into the cab, meaning you can concentrate your ears on the Bluetooth Radio and MP3 player contained within. The improved dashboard brings together all the main controls, and the high-up position of the gear change lever makes it comfortable to use. The steering wheel position can be adjusted, and holds controls for the radio and phone meaning you never need to move your hands from the wheel. Passenger space hasn’t been compromised – the seats are large and adjustable, and there are all the expected storage spaces around the cab.
The Doblo is economical as well, with features such as eco:Drive which analyses your trip data and suggests ways to alter your driving to make it more sustainable. The inclusion of Bi-link rear suspension means increased stability, comfort and safety, no matter what load you’re carrying.
Additional safety features of the Doblo include Electronic Stability Control and Hill-Hold, ensuring you’re always in control. Traction+ guarantees better safety and handling when driving on uneven and slippery surfaces, and rear parking sensors take the stress out parking the Doblo.
The Fiat Talento is a spacious van which doesn’t compromise on performance. Combining a large load capacity with the ablity to tackle urban environments, this is a truly versatile van.
The choice of height, length and wheelbase allows you to make this van your own and ensure it is ideally suited to the needs of your business. Opting for the larger models you can have a load volume of up to 8.6m2, and a load compartment length of up to 2,937mm. The Talento has the power to back up its size, with a range of Euro 6 engines available including the TwinTurbo engine which can deliver a power of up to 145 HP. Despite this, consumption is kept low and CO2 emissions are also low for a vehicle of this size.
Safety is another area in which the Talento excels, as it has a host of design and technological features to keep you and your passengers safe. Hill holder allows you to move off of a gradient with ease, even with a heavy load. Without having to touch the breaks, the vehicle is held for a few seconds before you move off. Trailer stability assist makes towing worry-free, as any skids are adjusted and corrected quickly. The Electronic Stability Control and Traction + ensure that even in uneven and slippery conditions you don’t lose control. When there is low grip from any wheel, the control unit transmits torque to the wheel with the best grip. The brakes themselves are also advanced, with Anti-Lock and Hydraulic Brake Assist.
The technology doesn’t stop there, but continues in the Talento’s interior. The Keyless Entry and Go system is designed for someone on the move and the rear parking sensors and camera go hand in hand to reduce time and effort spent parking. The Viewplus mirror reduces the blindspot, improving safety for you and other road users and improving the lateral view from the cab. The 7” touchscreen Infotainment and navigation system comes as standard, and helps you stay connected and find your way in style.
