Fiat Talento updates revealed


Fiat Professional has announced details of updates for its Talento for 2020, including a new 2.0-litre Euro 6D-Temp engines and revised cabin features.

The 2020 Talento sees a new 2.0-litre EcoJet engine with Start & Stop technology introduced, which improves fuel economy, reduces CO2 emissions and provides better power and torque than the previous 1.6-litre engine, according to Fiat. It is available in three different power outputs – 120hp and 320Nm, 145hp and 350Nm and 170hp and 380Nm – peak torque is already available at 1,500rpm. The engine is equipped with a variable geometry turbocharger for smoother performance at low speeds and thanks to its electronic control, the new turbocharger can adapt its fluid dynamics to engine speed and driving style. These new engines use Selective Catalytic Reduction technology to decrease nitrogen oxide emissions by injecting a solution of AdBlue into the exhaust gas.

Inside, the Talento has been refreshed with new black interiors, complemented by numerous storage compartments, with a total capacity of 90 litres. The base version now features the Techno Silver Pack as standard, while SX, Tecnico and Sportivo will come with the Glossy Black Pack to highlight air vents, infotainment system and buttons in the cabin.

In addition, the Talento features a new DAB radio with Bluetooth as standard on the base and SX models, while the Tecnico and Sportivo versions are fitted with a new seven-inch Touch-Radio Nav infotainment system, which is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto software.

The Talento is available in various body types – low roof and high roof van, crew cab and platform cab – and has two lengths, two heights and two different wheelbases to choose from. By combining these elements, the renewed model can be tailored to meet all needs from 5.2 to 8.6 cubic meters and with a GVW from 2.80 to 3.05 tons and a payload that can reach 1,258kg.

In term of load volume, the Talento has a volume of 5.2 cubic metres in the short wheelbase trim, 6 cubic metres in the long wheelbase trim and 8.6 cubic metres in the long wheelbase and high roof trim. It means that the Talento, even in the short wheelbase trim, can carry three Euro pallets.

The Talento is available to order now, priced from £22,695.
