Fiat Fiorino 2016 prices and specification

  • Euro-6 compliant petrol and diesel engines
  • Very few changes to the exterior
  • Prices increase to £11,315 plus VAT

Fiat Professional has announced prices and specification for its Euro-6 compliant 2016 Fiat Fiorino. Very few changes have been made with a marginal list price increase to £11,315 plus VAT, although operators may be able to recuperate some cash through reduced fuel consumption.

Along with its PSA siblings the Citroen Nemo and Peugeot Bipper, the Fiat Fiorino was the first van to enter the ‘compact van’ segment in 2008, offering operators great manoeuvrability and tight turning circles for city driving without compromising the 2.8 cubic metre load volume and 660kg maximum payload.

Despite its modern appearance, the Fiorino is now one of the oldest vans on the market as it hasn’t received any major upgrades since its launch eight years ago. Fiat Professional has taken the Euro-6 deadline (read more on Euro-6 vansas an opportunity to revitalise this little panel van.

On the outside

Very little has changed on the exterior, with the new model keeping the same body panels and even the same headlights and bonnet.

The only components that have changed are the front bumper with integrated grille and the option of new 15-inch wheel covers or diamond-finish alloy wheels of the same size.

On the inside

There are, however, significant improvements in the cab. Fiat Professional has adopted a more stylish approach with a redesigned steering wheel that is now available with remote stereo controls and leather trim, a new practical storage compartment for the dashboard and a permanently backlit instrument cluster with new graphics.

A new five-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system with sat-nav and DAB radio is also offered for the first time, which comes with Bluetooth connectivity and USB and auxiliary ports.

Engines and driveline

The Euro-6 range of engines features two 1.3-litre second-generation Multijet diesel engines with slightly improved outputs of 80hp and 95hp, as well as a 77hp 1.4-litre non-turbo petrol unit.

Models dubbed EcoJet benefit from fuel-saving technologies such as a start/stop function and a ‘smart’ alternator that conserves more energy, and helps the Fiorino achieve an impressive combined fuel economy of 74.3mpg when fitted with the Comfort-matic robotized manual transmission; a 14-percent increase over the outgoing model.

Cargo area

Very little has changed at the business end of the Fiat Fiorino, with the new model offering just one 2.8 cubic metre load variant.

The load area measures 1,523mm long, 1,473mm wide 1,203mm high, and the payload is rated at 660kg.

Pricing and availability

Order books for the new Fiat Fiorino are open now with prices starting from £11,315 plus VAT.
