Fiat Professional, launched in 2007, is the name of Fiat's commercial offering and consists of a range of vans that are carefully designed with performance, efficiency, comfort and style in mind. The following commercial vans can be found in the Fiat Professional range -
Fiorino, the car like yet practical and versatile smallest van in the range is an award winner in its class scoring highly for many categories.
Scudo - the van that suits a multitude of business needs and available in paneled, part glazed or glazed.
Ducato - a more heavy weight commercial vehicle also available as Tipper and Dropside options.
As one would expect from the Italians and their reputation for class and design, these vehicles may be for commercial purposes but they still deliver great comfort and style. As well as being modern and stylish they also manage to be both practical and versatile and in 2014 Fiat Professional was awarded Fleet Van Manufacturer of the year. Described as "the benchmark for all van manufacturers" it would seem that producing vehicles since the 1800's has put them at the leading edge when it comes to striving for continuous customer satisfaction.
The Fiat Professional range has many accolades which include the Fiat Fiorino winning City Van of the year for the 3rd year in a row. When you consider the competition in this class this is no mean feat. The award is based on a number of criteria including fuel efficiency and emissions, payload and versatility as well as reliability and comfort. It would seem that the Fiorino ticks all of the boxes with customer service and delivery topping the list. The Ducato has also won many awards and it is no surprise that Fiat Professional appeared in the top 5 in many categories.
The Fiat Professional range is well considered with versatility, space, comfort and payload capacities all carefully planned and executed. From urban stop/start deliveries to the transportation, loading and unloading of heavy loads the Fiat range is designed to deliver practicality whilst being comfortable and stylish. The load space has been well considered and the loading access is good both to the rear and side of the vehicles with low load heights that are further improved by the pneumatic suspension.
The fuel efficiency, low emissions, performance and reliability of the Multijet II common-rail diesel engine makes it a popular choice with many business users. In addition to the performance, space and loading capabilities it is the comfort for both driver and passengers that make this range stands out. For the driver on the go that does many miles, the ergonomically designed cabin has everything the driver needs to use the cabin as an office. The central seat of both the Scudo and the Ducato have a fold out desk large enough to rest a 15.6" laptop and for paperwork to be laid flat. The Fiorino has the same feature but with only two seats it is the passenger seat that can be folded into a similar desk space.
In addition other features of the Fiat range include the technical additions of DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity and USB/Aux ports all of which are controlled from steering wheel mounted controls. The cruise control, power steering and Traction+ come with the larger of the models - the Ducato which is the top performing Fiat model in Europe.
Fiat is renowned for manufacturer and dealer support and the continually improving offering and commitment to customer service and experience. As a brand it is clear to see that they listen to their customers and strive to provide service that is best in class.
