FIAT Professional Introduces the new Sportivo trim
FIAT Professional have introduced its the new Sportivo trim at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show held at the Birmingham NEC (29 April – May 1, 2014). On display, the FIAT Fiorino Sportivo and the FIAT Ducato Sportivo.
Taking its place as the flagship model of each vehicle in the FIAT Professional range, Sportivo builds on the high specification of the Tecnico models by adding alloy wheels, engine power upgrades, Sportivo side-stripes and painted bumpers (where available). As with Tecnico versions, air conditioning; Blue&Me™ connectivity with a TomTom satnav dock†; front fog lights and parking sensors are also standard, making Sportivo models amongst the best equipped and best value vehicles in their respective segments.
Promotional prices for the Sportivo range start at just £9,695* for the Fiorino Sportivo 1.3 95 MultiJet II, which represents a £700 premium versus the Fiorino Tecnico 1.3 75 MultiJet II promotional price. The Doblò Cargo range starts at just £10,695* for the Doblò Sportivo 1.6 105 MultiJet, again just £700 more than the equivalent Doblò Tecnico 1.3 90 MultiJet II, while the £13,195* Scudo Sportivo 2.0 130 MultiJet gains a whopping 40hp boost compared to the equivalent Scudo Tecnico 1.6 90 MultiJet while costing, once again, just £700 more! The FIAT Ducato Sportivo range starts at £14,995* for the short-wheelbase 2.3 150 MultiJet II, a 20hp boost over the £14,295 FIAT Ducato Tecnico 2.3 130 MultiJet II, with a similar £700 price premium for standard, medium and long-wheelbase versions.
In addition to the FIAT Fiorino Sportivo and FIAT Ducato Sportivo, other exhibits on the FIAT Professional stand include the Fiorino Cargo Adventure and a number of vehicles from some of FIAT Professional’s best-known customers: A FIAT Ducato Tipper displaying the livery of FM Conway; one of the FIAT Doblò Maxi vans from the BT Openreach fleet; a Royal Mail FIAT Doblò XL; a FIAT Doblò Work-Up ‘dropside’ vehicle from Balfour Beatty and a FIAT Scudo LWB in its National Grid livery.
