Parkers Van Deal of the Week 26/6/15

Anyone following our recent large van comparisons would understand how underrated the Fiat Ducato is – it even caught some of the Parkers editorial staff by surprise. It is the most fuel efficient van in its class, and also scores high for payload, and it can be yours for just £12,990 with this deal from Global Vans.

In the cab

The ‘Classic’ cabin environment is remarkably appealing and functional, and features cloth upholstery, large cup holders, electric windows, electric and heated door mirrors, and CD player with MP3, auxiliary and USB connectivity.

Under the bonnet

Fiat Powertrain’s super-efficient 2.3-litre multijet engine powers the Ducato, and is rated at 108bhp and 300Nm. It achieved 39.8mpg on the NEDC combined cycle, which is better than most of the competition, to help keep running costs down. The engine is punchy too and it pulls away rather quick from the lights.  

Load Area

Despite it being the low gross vehicle weight version, it is still able to carry 1,140kg thanks to the low chassis weight of the Fiat Ducato. The 2,670mm (long) by 1,870mm (wide) by 1,662mm (high) load area give a load volume of eight cubic metres.  

Summary

The Fiat Ducato is efficient, comfortable, powerful and relatively productive, and at £12,990 plus VAT, represents huge value for money. The recommended price is £20,590, which means there’s a saving of over £7,500, and Global Vans provides Hire Purchase, Contract Hire and Finance Lease financing.
