Fiat Professional Van News From The Platts Team
It’s a double celebration for Fiat Professional as two vehicles from its range have been honoured in the Trade Van Driver Awards 2018.
The Fiat Professional Talento, which joined Fiat’s commercial vehicle range in 2016, has been named Traders’ Choice by the magazine, while the Fiat Professional Fiorino was awarded the Best Small Trades Van accolade.
Trade Van Driver is the only van magazine produced for the owner-driver and small fleet operator. The awards are judged not only by the magazine’s expert panel, but also by a selection of readers who use light commercial vehicles as part of their businesses.
Commenting on Talento, the magazine judges said: “The Talento is Fiat’s medium panel van replacement for the old Scudo and ticks all the boxes for traders who need a stylish, comfortable van which will transport five cubic metres or so of cargo.”
And of Fiorino they said: “Fiat’s functional approach to the design and practicalities of a small commercial vehicle makes the Fiorino the perfect tool for trade users who need a small van for city use.”
“I am delighted that the Talento has secured this award against some strong competition,” says Richard Chamberlain, country manager, Fiat Professional UK. “It’s a popular van among customers as these results show, and I’m delighted the professional judges think so too.
I’m also pleased that the judges have recognised the continuing attributes that our Fiat Professional Fiorino provides to small business users.”
“Trade Van Driver Magazine prides itself on offering a true reflection of the thoughts and feelings of its readership,” says Matthew Eisenegger, Editor of Trade Van Driver. “Now in their seventh year, it is great to see some products taking the accolade for a seventh time, as well as new products scoring a first win.”
Pricing for the Fiat Talento starts at £20,795 for the SWB 1.6 MultiJet 95hp Van. The Fiat Fiorino starts at £12,065 for the 1.4 75hp Cargo petrol version.
