Fiat Fiorino - Best Light Van for 2014
Fiat is celebrating 3rd consecutive success for Fiorino, which is named "Best Light Van" in the 2014 Van Fleet World Honours. Fiorino's versatility and capacity convinced the judges to give it maximum points as well as its low running costs.
Fiat Fiorino has a payload of up to 660kg and a load volume of up to 2.5 cubic metres (or 2.8 m3 with folded passenger seat). Thanks to its advanced MultiJet II turbo-diesel engines, the FIAT Fiorino returns up to 65.7 mpg UK (4.3 liters / 100 km) on the combined cycle, while also benefiting its users with long service intervals and low repair costs.
For 2014, Fiat Fiorino customers also have the possibility of opting for the new Sportivo version, which builds on the high specification of the Tecnico model by adding alloy wheels, Sportivo side-stripes and an engine power upgrade to 95HP (70 kW) with no fuel economy or emissions penalties. As with Tecnico versions, air conditioning; Blue&Me™ connectivity with a TomTom satnav dock; front fog lights and parking sensors are also standard, making the Fiat Fiorino Sportivo amongst the best equipped and best value models in its segment at just £9,695.
"While there have been a number of car-derived launches in the last year, none matches the versatility and load-carrying capabilities of the FIAT Fiorino. The addition of enhanced traction versions of the Fiorino - with Traction+ grip control and standard Mud & Snow tyres - simply adds to its versatility, offering operators who regularly have to cope with poor weather conditions a relatively cost-effective alternative.", commented According to Dan Gilkes, Editor, Van Fleet World.
