FIAT Professional Talento UK pricing and specifications announced

FIAT Professional have announced the UK pricing and specifications for the new Talento, a van it says will be equally at home in the city as it is criss-crossing the country on the open road.

The all-new Talento has an interior volume of up to 8.6m³ and a payload of up to 1,249kg; FIAT promise ample load-pulling performance combined with fuel efficiency (47.9mpg / 5.9L/100km on the official combined cycle).

There are nine body styles to choose from – the standard- and high-roof vans in short- and long-wheelbase versions, short- and long-wheelbase people carriers and crew vans and a long-wheel base platform cab. Innovative features include the “CargoPlus” storage area under the passenger seats, which allows storage of objects up to 3.75m in length (4.15 for LWB versions) by sliding them into a bulkhead opening.

The new Talento comes with 1.6-litre turbo and twin-turbo diesel engines, all equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard.

Inside, Talento offers 90 litres of in-cabin storage space in a variety of shapes and sizes (including compartments hidden under the seat base and behind the seat back of the passenger seats), an additional blind spot-mitigating ViewPlus interior mirror, and a fold-down central seat with detachable clipboard holder and optional smartphone/tablet holder.

In terms of safety, all versions are fitted with LED daytime running lights, ABS with EBD (electronic brake distribution) and EBA (emergency brake assistance) in addition to a ESC system with Hill Holder and Traction+ as standard. Available safety features include side airbags and window-bags, a Trailer Stability Assist (TSA) system, a front parking assist system and a reversing camera.

Standard equipment on the entry level Talento includes the usual comforts and gadgets such as remote central locking, electric front windows, electrically operated and heated door mirrors, a full bulkhead, a height adjustable driver’s seat, dual passenger seat, audio system with Bluetooth, DAB, USB, Aux-in, a full-size spare wheel and steering-wheel remote controls, with many optional added extras and versions to choose from.
