Fiat Professional will show the new Ducato model year 2020 for the first time at the Motorhome and Caravan Show in Birmingham from October 15th to October 20th, 2019. With numerous innovations, Ducato consolidates its position as the market leader in motorhome base vehicles.
The new Fiat Professional Talento has been updated with a host of new features for the new model year. Model Year 2020 (MY20) sees the introduction of new 2.0-litre Euro6d-Temp engines and updated features in the cabin, including a 7-inch Touch-Radio Nav infotainment system that is Apple CarPlay ready and Android AutoTM compatible, while still remaining the ideal workmate with its class-leading load capacity and cabin functionality.
New efficient engines
The MY20 Talento sees the introduction of the new 2.0-litre EcoJet engine with Start & Stop technology, which provides improved fuel economy, reduced CO2 emissions and better power and torque than the previous 1.6-litre engine. Available in three different power outputs – 120hp and 320Nm, 145hp and 350Nm and 170hp and 380Nm – peak torque is already available at 1,500rpm. The engine is equipped with a variable geometry turbocharger for smoother performance at low speeds and thanks to its electronic control, the new turbocharger can adapt its fluid dynamics to engine speed and driving style. These new engines use Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology to decrease nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by injecting a solution of AdBlue® into the exhaust gas.
Comfort and functionality for trouble-free travels
Inside, the Talento MY20 has been refreshed with new Black interiors to create an elegant and functional ambience that is complemented by numerous storage compartments, with a total capacity of 90 litres. The base version now features the Techno Silver Pack as standard, while SX, Tecnico and Sportivo will come with the Glossy Black Pack to highlight air vents, infotainment system and buttons in the cabin.
To improve productivity on the go, the new Talento MY20 features a new DAB radio with Bluetooth as standard on the base and SX models, while the Tecnico and Sportivo versions are now fitted with a new 7-inch Touch-Radio Nav, which is Apple CarPlay ready and Android AutoTM compatible. Equipped with USB input and DAB radio, the system also offers navigation and Bluetooth® technology as standard. As well as mirroring apps from the driver’s phone, CarPlay also implements Siri voice control for use while driving. The system is compatible with Android AutoTM as well, projecting apps and services on to the central display.
Volumes and lengths to meet all professional transport needs
Available with a full range of body types (low roof and high roof van, crew cab and platform cab), the Talento MY20 comes in a choice of two lengths, two heights and two different wheelbases. By combining these elements, the renewed model can be tailored to meet all needs for light transport, from 5.2 to 8.6 cubic meters and with a gross vehicle weight from 2.80 to 3.05 tons and a payload that can reach 1,258kg.
In addition to all this, by opening the “CargoPlus” partition situated under the passenger seats, professionals can carry objects measuring up to 3.75m in length (4.15m for the long wheelbase trim level). The extraordinary flexibility is also guaranteed by the loading height of just 552mm and the sliding door width of 1,030mm. The load volume of 5.2 cubic metres in the short wheelbase trim, 6 cubic metres in the long wheelbase trim and a generous 8.6 cubic metres in the long wheelbase and high roof trim means that the Talento MY20, even in the short wheelbase trim, can carry three Euro pallets.
The Fiat Professional Talento MY20 is available to order now, priced from £22,695 for a Short Wheelbase 10 120HP. For full details of the Talento MY20 line-up please visit fiatprofessional.com/uk/talento.
