Fiat is putting on a show within a show at the NEC next month.
It will be heavily promoting its new Fiat Professional range of models inside and outside the CV Show from 24-26 April.
Some of the vehicles on the stand will be liveried in the design of the major companies with which Fiat Professional is currently conducting business.
Models on the stand will also feature many of the new technologies and innovations that Fiat Professional has recently introduced across its line-up, such as Euro 5 engines, Start&Stop, Traction+, Blue&Me TomTom Live and eco:Drive Professional.
The stand will also feature a display of the Comfort-Matic gearbox, now available on new Ducato in combination with the lively and reliable 2.3 litre 130 and 150 MultiJet II engines, in addition to the top-of-the-range 3.0 litre 180 MultiJet Power engine. A display of the new Euro 5 engine will also be on the stand.
The new Ducato is the latest incarnation of the best-selling business van whose five generations have picked up numerous international awards and sold more than 2.2 million vehicles since 1981.
The new Ducato Euro 5 offers a wide range of new content and a renovated engine family that enhances its competitiveness in the business van segment, and offers the market the best in terms of performance, comfort, payload and running costs as a business van comparison.
The new range of Euro 5 engines is more powerful and diverse. Each one is a leader in its power bracket in terms of consumption, emissions and performance. The range includes three 2.3 MultiJet II engines with power outputs of 110bhp, 130 bhp and 148 bhp respectively. Additional business van news includes a new 3.0 litre 180 MultiJet Power Euro 5 engine.
