The versatile and economical all-new Fiat Talento

Fiat Torento

FIAT Professional will strengthen its offering at the heart of the medium van segment when the versatile and economical all-new Talento goes on sale in Ireland next month.

Designed to offer supreme versatility and choice, the Talento is available in either short of long wheelbase form, a wide variety of body styles and with a choice of powerful and highly efficient state-of-the-art engines.

Behind its compact and stylish exterior lies an impressive all-rounder offering an interior volume of up to 8.6m³. Available with a choice of advanced turbo and twin turbo diesel powerplants, Talento can return up to 6.1 l/100km (46.3mpg) on the official combined cycle while CO2 emissions are reduced to as low as 160g/km.

Talento also features a suite of cutting edge FIAT Professional technology – including EBA (emergency brake assistance) and Trailer Stability Assist (TSA) – created to improve the comfort, productivity and safety of those on board.

The arrival of Talento, which is positioned between the Doblò Cargo and Ducato in the FIAT Professional range, gives the brand one of the most complete van ranges available in Ireland, with a model to suit the specific needs of virtually all end users.

Prices for the all-new Fiat Professional Talento start at just €18,735, excluding VAT and VRT.

Design has been at the core of Talento’s development from the beginning and the vehicle’s stylish appearance adds to its appeal.

With bold, clear-cut lines and an upright stance, Talento is unmistakably part of the Fiat Professional family. But a number of unique styling cues give it a personality of its own.

At a glance, the model is compact and well-proportioned – the forward-stretching windscreen connecting elegantly to the short bonnet to create an imposing and dynamic front end. This is further enhanced by the grille which is designed to wrap around the headlights for additional effect and added protection.

The squared-off rear end, meanwhile, helps to maximise the Talento’s carrying capacity and the practicality of the load while giving the van a broad stance that exudes stability and strength.

Powerful, efficient and economical engines beneath the bonnet, the all-new Talento is available with a choice of reliable, powerful and efficient 1.6-litre turbo and twin-turbo diesel engines, all mated with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard.
Safety was a key consideration throughout the development of Talento and as a result all models are equipped with an impressive array safety features including side airbags and window-bags, a front parking assist system and a reversing camera with a display in the rear-view mirror. Talento’s cabin is functional, practical and comfortable.

Orders for FIAT Professional's new Talento will open in Ireland shortly with peices, excluding VAT VRT and dealer related delivery charges, starting at €18,735 for the 1.6-litre MultiJet 95hp SWB standard roof van.

The long-wheelbase FIAT Professional Talento is priced from €20,335 (1.6 MultiJet 120hp), the crew cab starts at €21,145 (1.6 MultiJet 95hp) and the Combi is priced from €24,000 (1.6 MultiJet 95hp).
