The Fiat Ducato differs from its joint French partners Citroen Relay & Peugeot Boxer as it uses the preferred by many Fiat 2.3 litre Multijet engines which are available in 110ps, 130ps or 150ps and for those wanting more ‘power’ there is the swift 180ps 3.0 litre engine. The 130ps and 150ps are available with the Stop&Start function to further improve on fuel consumption.

A choice of four lengths and three heights with payloads ranging from 1000kg to almost 2000kg on the 4t GVW variant and load space of up to 17m3 make the Ducato a serious contender in this large van sector. The Ducato also comes as a Maxi version which has reinforced suspension and 16″ wheels for those who regularly carry loads close to its full payload potential, however despite its name the Maxi does not have increased payloads.
Thanks to a host of features the Fiat Ducato is even easier to drive and load with the rear door openings ranging from 1520mm to 2030mm high depending on the roof height variant, the low loading threshold at only 54cm from the ground and a side load door opening wide enough to take a Euro Pallet.
The cabin is roomy with plenty of space for three and driver’s seat offers a good driving position. It is also well equipped with the Ducato Tecnico adding Air Con, Revese parking sensors, Blue&Me handsfree with controls on steering wheel and Start&Stop amongst others. All in all a good all-round value for money workhorse with a good spec on the Tecnico. Cabin a bit noisy at speeds but this is common for many vehicles in its class.
We can "totally" recommend the service received from Paul and Totally Vans.
In addition to the final price being extremely competitive, the entire process was absolutely painless. So much so, made me question why previous vehicle purchases were so laborious!Michael, Claire, Adam and Albi – Commercial Catering Contracts LTD.
I am always a little apprehensive when buying a new vehicle. What is the best model for my needs?, Which is the most appropriate funding solution? Am I getting a good deal? etc. Totally Vans gave me all of the facts and enabled me to make an informed and confident decision. Antony Cockerell - AR18
