Commercial vehicles have to be utilitarian and come at a competitive price. So you are not expecting leather massage seats. That said, the Fiat had a nice finish at our spec level. The seats were comfortable, and there was a noticeable effort to upgrade the materials in the relevant parts you interact with.
What tech features does the Fiat Ducato have?
Perhaps the standout tech feature was the rear-facing camera. The camera is located just above the rear doors. What we liked was that it displays the picture on what looks like a traditional rearview mirror. Visibility is excellent, and we found it worked well in all weathers. Beyond that, when you select the reverse gear, the infotainment screens show a much broader angle view from the cameras. This makes reversing and parking much easier and safer.
The Ducato had an impressive level of interactivity on its infotainment system. You can link in with the Amazon ecosystem and use various apps. It is an excellent standard once you trade up to the Tecnico spec level.
Is there suitable space in the Fiat Ducato?
Plenty of variations, good capacities
The Fiat Ducato has a very long list of variations on wheelbase, roof height and load capacity. The Short Wheelbase model has a nominal payload of 1,142kg, but this stretches up to nearly 1,500 kilograms when you opt for the more significant variations.
Regarding cargo space, the Ducato has an 8m3 cargo volume even in its smaller Short Wheelbase format. This expands to a maximum of 17m3 if you opt for the Extra Long Wheelbase Maxivan.
