Parkers Van Deal of the Week 29/05/15

  • Fiat Ducato
  • SWB 2.3 Multijet (108ps) 30 Van
  • £12,990 plus VAT, saving almost £8,000

The focus of this week’s Deal of the Week is on heavy vans, with this superb offer on the Fiat Ducato. The Fiat Ducato is well refined and the most efficient large panel van on the market and, thanks to Global Van Solutions, can be yours for just £12,990 plus VAT, a saving of almost £8,000 off the list price.

In the cab

The Ducato is surprisingly smooth to drive, and much more refined than the other cheaper large vans, like the Renault Master and Vauxhall Movano, and the cab is well stocked with the latest gadgets.

Even though this is the base model, customers still benefit from a CD player with USB, auxiliary and Bluetooth connectivity. The seats are fully adjustable and are covered by a durable but presentable cloth, and there are heated electric door mirrors.

Under the bonnet

Fiat Ducatos are powered by FPT’s (Fiat Powertrains) renowned 2.3-litre diesel engine, which also features in the Iveco Daily. It’s the most fuel efficient in its class and achieves well above 40mpg on the combined cycle. It is tuned to provide 108bhp and 300Nm of torque.

Load Area

Being the smallest of the Ducato family, this variant can handle up to eight cubic metres. The relatively light chassis and driveline means the Ducato can offer up to 1,140kg of payload, even on the three tonne variant.


A well specced cab, fuel efficient engine and decent loading capabilities means there’s not much to dislike about this Fiat Ducato SWB 2.3 Multijet (108ps) 30 Van. A saving of almost £8,000 off the list price is the cherry on the cake.
