September’s Euro 6 deadline is fast approaching. All new vans sold in the UK after this time will have to meet Euro 6 emissions standards.
So it’s no surprise that model refreshes accompanied by new engines are coming thick and fast. The latest van to receive the Euro 6 treatment is the compact Fiat Fiorino.
The new model is now available to order. Here’s what’s on offer:
- Choice of two turbo-diesel 1.3 MultiJet II engines with outputs of 80 and 95hp
- Also available with a 77hp 1.4-litre naturally-aspirated engine
- New diesel EcoJet model which uses fuel-saving technology including a Start & Stop system, a “smart” alternator and a variable displacement oil pump. Paired with a Comfort-Matic robotised transmission, the Fiorino EcoJet promises a combined fuel consumption figure of 74.3mpg with 100g/km of CO2. That’s a fuel saving of 14% on the standard Fiorino with manual transmission.
Other changes to the Fiorino appear to be fairly minor and cosmetic. The front bumper design has been updated, and new wheel trims and 15-inch alloy wheels are available.
For drivers wanting a more robust and capable vehicle, the FIAT Adventure is available. This soft-roader model offers 15-inch wheels with mud-and-snow tyres, a raised suspension, oversized body protection, a front bumper with skid plate and, of course, the Traction+ electronic differential lock system which assists driving in low-grip conditions.
Available in Cargo and Combi body styles, orders for FIAT Professional’s new Fiorino are now open priced from £11,315, excluding VAT and OTR charges.
