FIAT Professional introduces Talento, the new model with a generous load capacity that is the ideal workmate for professionals on city streets and major roads alike thanks to its great versatility and ability to adapt to the most diverse needs of its customers. Its name – Talento – evokes the innate qualities of the vehicle and the concept of traditional FIAT Professional value and dependability by making reference to the name of an ancient coin – the Talent (Talento in Italian). The moniker has high symbolic value and suggests what the vehicle can do, its abilities and – in short – its talent.
From a design standpoint, the new Talento is compact and well-proportioned: the forward- stretching windscreen connects elegantly to the short bonnet and the overall effect is one of an imposing and dynamic front end. The grille is designed to wrap around the headlights and form a mask that together with the bumper and the grid conveys a solid and striking appearance, while offering a functional element of protection at the same time. The squared-off rear end allows for ample inner space and a high load capacity while giving the Talento a broad stance that exudes stability and strength. As a whole, the design is upright with bold, clear-cut lines in tune with the new family feeling of the FIAT Professional range.
The new model is equipped with reliable, powerful and efficient turbo and twin-turbo diesel engines with six-speed manual gearboxes and power outputs of up to 145hp. The result is a functional vehicle that helps customersmaximise the value of their work, time and investment by focusing on their needs regardless of whether they drive a van, people-carrier, crew cab or flat bed. With the new Talento, which is positioned between the Doblò Cargo and Ducato in the line-up, the FIAT Professionalrange is now even more capable of providing just the right vehicle for each and every customer’s specific needs.
Orders for FIAT Professional’s new Talento open in mid-May with final pricing and specifications to be announced closer to the vehicle’s UK launch.
