Two vehicles from the Fiat Professional range have been honoured in the Trade Van Driver Awards for 2018.

The Fiat Professional Talento, which joined Fiat’s commercial vehicle range in 2016, has been named Traders’ Choice by the magazine. Not only was it a victory for the Talento, but a double celebration, as the Fiat Professional Fiorino was awarded the Best Small Trades Van accolade.

The awards are judged by Trade Van Driver Magazine, the only van magazine produced for the owner-driver and small fleet operator. The expert panel judged and awarded the Fiat Professional duo, in addition to votes from a selection of readers who use light commercial vehicles as part of their businesses. Giving the Fiat Professional Talento and Fiorino a big thumbs up from professionals and real business owners alike.

The magazine judges said “The Talento is Fiat’s medium panel van replacement for the old Scudo and ticks all the boxes for traders who need a stylish, comfortable van which will transport five cubic metres or so of cargo.”

Waxing lyrical about the Fiat Fiorino they said “Fiat’s functional approach to the design and practicalities of a small commercial vehicle makes the Fiorino the perfect tool for trade users who need a small van for city use.”

Richard Chamberlain, country manager of Fiat Professional UK said “I am delighted that the Talento has secured this award against some strong competition. It’s a popular van among customers as these results show, and I’m delighted the professional judges think so too.”

Editor of Trade Van Driver Matthew Eisenegger said “Trade Van Driver Magazine prides itself on offering a true reflection of the thoughts and feelings of its readership. Now in their seventh year, it is great to see some products taking the accolade for a seventh time, as well as new products scoring a first win.”

The Fiat Talento starts at £20,795 for the SWB 1.6 MultiJet 95hp Van, and the Fiat Fiorino starts at £12,065 for the 1.4 75hp Cargo petrol version.
