New Fiat Fiorino Van

Fiat Fiorino Van Review and Specs - 2022

 

The Fiat Fiorino is the smallest van the Italian company builds - sitting underneath the Fiat Doblo, Talento and Ducato. It's a compact one-box urban van, which offers more load capacity than a comparable car-based van like the Ford Fiesta or Vauxhall Corsavan. The Fiorino is built alongside the Peugeot Bipper and Citroen Nemo. The three vans are nearly identical, only offering up slightly different front grilles.

Fiorino Loadspace

Ideal as a business van, the new Fiorino makes impressive use of compact space and has a load compartment volume of up to 2.8 m3. The access was made easy thanks to the wide sliding side door with ergonomic vertical handles, which is very handy. Fiorino has an amazing capacity of up to 610 kg and a regular square shape. The 180° rear door opening grants you easy and convenient access to the loading bay. The load threshold height is just 527 mm. Finally, a 9.95 m turning circle provides great handling.

Do you need to carry a great load? The new Fiorino Van will not disappoint you. The passenger seat can be folded down to the floor completely flat, so the load compartment length increases by nearly one meter and volume increases by 0.3 m3. You may thus carry long objects with a total load compartment length of nearly 2.5 m and 2.8 m3 volume.

 

FIAT FIORINO ADVENTURE

So, you are somebody who seeks adventure off the beaten path? The Fiorino Adventure Van is the ideal vehicle for those who go on rugged terrain, drive in the mountains or enjoy a winter ride off the tracks. The Adventure is a special version, which has an electronic differential lock traction, a device that gives you the extra grip to overcome rough situations in the countryside, like mud and snow. This system is activated through a button located on the dashboard. It also includes higher suspension and specific 15” tyres m+s, under-engine protection, front bumper with skid plate and higher side protections.

 

FIAT FIORINO COMBI

The Fiat Fiorino Combi is a versatile business van that accommodates up to 4 people and has plenty of space for your luggage, with a load capacity of 280 kg. Your team and their tools will be safely and comfortably carried in the Combi version. The passengers can safely and easily access the rear seats through the wide side sliding door. An additional side sliding door facilitates access. The rear seats are foldable and removable and open up the space for a loading volume of up to 2.5 m3.

 

FIAT FIORINO CARGO

The Fiat Fiorino Cargo model has a volume up to 2,8m3, a load capacity of 610 kg, a rear door opening of 180°, a load threshold of 527mm, and a turning circle kerb-to-kerb of 9.95 mm.

SAFETY 

The new Fiat Van offers all the safety equipment and driving aids such as ABS with electronic brake force distribution EBD, ESC complete with anti-slip regulation and hydraulic brake assist. It includes a hill holder for those tricky hill starts and parking sensors. The front airbags and front side airbags protect both the head and chest. For those of you who love the highway, cruise control helps you maintain total control while driving. 

But the new Fiat Fiorino Van also has traction: an aid for driving and setting off in poor grip conditions (snow, ice, mud, etc.), allowing the driving force to be distributed over the same axle when both wheels are slipping. It brakes the wheels with poor grip, transferring the driving force to those which have more grip on the ground.

Do you want to customise your van according to your imagination? This Fiat is ready to meet your demands. You can choose between 11 body colours and 3 seat fabrics, all designed to enhance passenger comfort.

FIORINO RELIABILITY 

 Great for businesses with small items to deliver, or where physical size and parking are a major concern, the Fiat Fiorino is the best choice. It’s cheap and reliable, too, with Fiat’s having a strong reputation for dependability. 

 With very few major reliability problems to report, the Fiat Fiorino can suffer from top suspension mount issues, but other than that these vans are solidly built. The Fiat van was developed jointly with Peugeot and Citroen and all three versions of the small van have proved reliable.

Fiat claims a combined fuel economy figure of 62.8mpg, with CO2 emissions of just 117g/km. We tested it and found that a figure in the high 50s was very easily achievable.

 

FIORINO TOP GEAR REVIEW

The Fiorino is not intended as a long-distance motorway cruiser, though the van copes well with higher-speed inter-urban travel. It excels in town and on local country roads, where the compact dimensions, lively engine performance and quick steering make the Fiat an enjoyable van to drive.

The short wheelbase and load-carrying suspension can make the ride a bit choppy when unladen, but the Fiorino holds the road well. The five-speed manual gearbox is light and easy to use, while the Comfort-Matic automated gearbox makes reasonably smooth progress.
