Fiat Fiorino Announced
Fiorino unveiled in Milan and Fiat announced it will build new Fiorino in partnership with Citroen and Peugeot. Length of 3,860mm and a load volume of 2.5m3.
Stowable passenger seat enables capacity to be increased to 2.8 m3 for a loading space length of 2.5 metres. Optimal loading height and large side-hinged rear doors and sliding side doors that make the loading bay easily accessible. Bright, modern, roomy cab combines practical, functional features with advanced ergonomics designed to ensure comfort and well-being for intensive professional use.
Standard equipment includes power steering for driving comfort, as well as ABS and a driver airbag for enhanced safety. Options include parking sensors, a separate cab locking system and additional storage space. Proven petrol and diesel engines, both fuel efficient and environmentally friendly (119g/km of CO2 in diesel-equipped versions), contribute to lower running costs.
Powered by either a 1.4-litre petrol or 1.3-litre MultiJet turbodiesel engine. The arrangement of some engine components reduces maintenance or repair times. The 1.3 MultiJet is coupled with either a five speed or MTS (Manual Transmission Automated) six-speed robotised gearbox, and returns 62 mpg in the combined cycle, a 119g/km CO2 figure. The 1.4 petrol model comes with a five-speed manual transmission.
Standard equipment in the entry-level Cargo version includes ABS anti-lock brakes with EBD, driver’s side airbag, height adjustable steering wheel, driver’s seat height and lumbar adjustment, locking fuel cap and radio/CD player. The Cargo SX model also gets remote central locking, electric windows and door mirrors, automatic door locking at 3mph, and an external temperature sensor.
Fiat announces Fiorino pricing for the UK, starting at £7999 for base 1.4 petrol.
Fiorino officially goes on sale in the UK, hot on the heels of winning the Fleet World Best New Van award.
Wins International Van Of The Year with a score of 112 points from a possible 140 from the judges.
Fiat introduces the Traction+ front electronic differential lock for the Fiorino that comes with 30mm raised ride height and greater protection for the body and underside. This goes on to become the Adventure model. The pack adds £750 to the price of the Cargo and £780 to the Combi’s price.
Fiat announces the Fiorino will receive Euro 5-compliant engines, with 75PS and 95PS turbodiesels with stop-start and DPF filters fitted to meet the new standard.

As with Tecnico versions, air conditioning, Blue&Me connectivity with a TomTom satnav dock, front fog lights and parking sensors are also standard. The Fiorino Sportivo is priced at £9,695 for the 1.3 95 MultiJet II, which represents a £700 premium versus the Fiorino Tecnico 1.3 75 MultiJet II.
Facelifted Fiorino announced
Revised Fiat Fiorino gets new bumpers, Euro6 engines and improved fuel economy. Automatic versions will now return a claimed 74.3mpg and 100g/km of CO2, while retaining 660kg payload.
Inside the updated Fiorino gets a new steering wheel with the option of remote controls for the radio. The instruments cluster also gets new graphics with permanent backlighting for better visibility. A new, five-inch, colour, touchscreen infotainment system is also offered for the first time, with Bluetooth, USB/AUX port and navigation and DAB radio.
The loadbay is unaltered from the original van, with large rear doors that open to 180 degrees to a flat load space that will carry objects up to 1.5 metres in length. This can be extended to 2.5 metres with the optional folding retractable middle passenger seat, which can be used as a desk or folded flat to provide the additional load length.
