The Fiat Professional Talento, which joined the Fiat’s commercial vehicle range last year, has been named Traders’ Choice by the magazine, while the Fiat Professional Fiorino was awarded the Best City Van accolade.
Trade Van Driver, the leading van magazine for small business users, is the only publication which caters for the owner-driver and small fleet operator. The awards are judged not only by the magazine’s expert panel, but also by a selection of readers who use light commercial vehicles as part of their businesses.
Commenting on Talento, the magazine judges said: Brand new for this year, the Talento is Fiat Professional’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.
And on Fiorino: Fiat Professional’s functional approach to the design and practicalities of a small commercial vehicle make the Fiorino the perfect tool for trade users who need a small van for city use.
“I am delighted that the Talento has secured this award against some strong competition,” says Richard Chamberlain, Head of Brand, Fiat Professional UK. “It is also pleasing that the judges have recognised the continuing attributes that our Fiat Professional Fiorino provides to small business users.”
Justin Seal, HTC Van Centre Director commented, “These vehicles have given us the ride of a lifetime, the awards keep coming in which is testament to the quality and drivability of these great vans”
