New Fiat Ducato in Cardigan Pembrokeshire
Hard work is easy with the Fiat Ducato on your side. Two wheelbases, three body lengths, three roof heights, a load capacity up to 17m3 and a payload capacity up to 2.2 tonnes ensure you can get every job done. You can also get the Ducato as a crew van with up to seven seats. Power comes from a Euro 6D Multijet diesel engine with 120hp, 140hp or 180hp, with the option of an automatic gearbox. This is also the first autonomous LCV, featuring Level 2 autonomy with ACC with Stop & Go with the Co-Driver pack. Trims include Standard, Tecnico Plus and Business Edition. Standard versions get a 5” display, Bluetooth, lane departure warning and advanced emergency braking. Tecnico adds a 7” touchscreen, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, air conditioning, wireless phone charging, keyless entry and start, and a rear camera. Business Edition boasts a 10” touchscreen, a 7” digital driver’s display and power-folding door mirrors.
The Ducato is a professional through and through, with a smart front end, LED daytime running lights and a body built for work. A low load sill, nearside sliding side door and 180-degree rear doors make time on the job a doddle.
The new Multijet diesel engine has reduced noise and enhanced torque for a sweeter driving experience. Automatic versions have nine-gears to keep revs low, and the Co-Driver pack (optional on auto versions) brings autonomous driving.
With 8m3 to 17m3 of cargo space and a Euro-pallet friendly load width, the Ducato is perfect as a delivery van or as a platform for specialist tools. The maximum length stands at 4,070mm, letting you load extremely long items.
