Fiat has been a major player in the European commercial van sector for well over a century, and for the last 35 years it’s the Ducato panel van that has been the flagship of the range.
Today’s Ducato range is powered by a line-up of Fiat’s Euro 6 Multijet II common-rail diesel engines.
The Ducato’s fuel economy is a real feather in its cap. The entry-level 115bhp 2.0-litre engine returns up to 47.9mpg, while the more popular 130hp and 150hp models offer 46.3mpg and 44.8mpg respectively. The 2.0-litre engine boasts CO2 emissions of 157g/km, rising to 161g/km for the 130hp engine and 165g/km for the 150hp motor. Even the most powerful 180hp engine delivers up to 44.8mpg and 165g/km.
Security is taken care of with standard-fit deadlocks, a secure steel bulkhead between the cab and load area, and a locking glove compartment.
A huge range of dimensions provide load capacities that cover the whole large van class, from 8.0 up to 17.0 cubic metres of space. The gross weight range extends from 3,000kg to 4,250kg as well, providing plenty of choice for customers
On the safety front there’s a driver’s airbag, ABS with EBD and ESC stability control as standard
