Fiat has updated the design and specification of its Fiorino small van.
The van retains load capacity of up to 2.8m3 and payload capacity of up to 660kg.
The front bumper of the new Fiorino has been refreshed in line with the Fiat Professional range, retaining high-mounted headlamps. New 15-inch wheel covers and 15-inch, diamond finish, burnished alloy wheels completes the external revisions.
The new Fiorino retains vertical handles that are designed to be approached from either side and opened with minimal effort. Functional optional equipment includes a folding retractable passenger seat which can be used as a desk, or folded perfectly flat to carry objects of up to 2.5 metres in length.
The passenger compartment has been renewed by introducing new elements and today is more comfortable and ergonomic than ever. The redesigned steering wheel is available with remote stereo controls and leather trim, as is and gear knob and boot. The instruments cluster gets new graphics with permanent backlighting for better visibility and a new, more functional storage compartment has been added to the dashboard. A new, five-inch, colour, touchscreen infotainment system is also offered for the first time, with Bluetooth, USB/AUX port and available satellite navigation and DAB radio.
The comprehensive line-up of engines – all Euro 6 – can satisfy all needs. The range features two turbo diesel 1.3 MultiJet II engines with 80 and 95hp as well as a 1.4-litre aspirated petrol unit.
The EcoJet version, which employs fuel-saving technologies such as a Start & Stop system, a ”smart” alternator and a variable displacement oil pump, is appearing for the first time on the New Fiorino. Paired with a Comfort-Matic robotised transmission, it achieves 74.3mpg on the combined cycle with emissions of 100g/km CO2, meaning a fuel saving of up to 14% compared to the manual transmission without EcoJet.
The new Fiorino retains all the safety systems of its predecessor: ABS with EBD, ESC complete with ASR, HBA, Hill Holder, parking sensors and front and side airbags.
The Adventure version offers 15-inch wheels with specific mud and snow tyres, a raised suspension, oversized body protection, a front bumper with skid plate and, the Traction+ electronic differential lock system which assists driving in low-grip conditions.
Orders for the new Fiorino open in mid-April.
