The new Fiorino in Cargo configuration will debut at the Milan exhibition, ideal for the transport of goods, which will be introduced on the market at the end of 2007(the versions destined to passenger transport will arrive in 2008) and produced in the Tofas a Bursa plant (Turkey).
An innovative idea is the core of the project: to create a vehicle of smaller external dimensions compared to those of commercial vehicles belonging to segment 1B (the so called “small vans”) but offering the same capacity and serviceability, reduced running costs and attractive price. Nuovo Fiorino is an agile vehicle in traffic and easy to park thanks to a turning circle between kerbs of
only 9.95 metres. This is the reason why the new Fiorino is ideal for drivers who spend long hours at the wheel, for delivery work, tradesmen, couriers and maintenance engineers, service companies or retailers.
Original style, compact external dimensions and large load platform
The New Fiorino has a modern design, which shows a marked personality, dynamism and sturdiness. The front part has a defined look, underscored by "bumper guards" and by original headlights – of large size – which blend harmoniously with the van’s style. The bonnet creates continuity with the windscreen and is inspired to the encircling shape of the bumper.
The new Fiorino appears to the eyes as a sturdy vehicle. The rear part is characterised by square lines that give the impression of a considerable load capacity. The racy lines confer great stylistic dynamism to the new vehicle; the side protections and handles of the sliding door (case-like, in vertical position) are sturdy and solid.
The polished versions have completely smooth sides, a solution that allows to better customise the vehicle with advertising stickers.
Even if compact in dimensions, only 3.86 metres long, 1.72 m high and 1.71 m wide, the new Fiorino boasts a spacious receptacle, rational and square with a volume of 2.5 cubic metres (which becomes 2.8 thanks to the front passenger seat that can be folded), capacity of 610 kg (including the driver) and an interior length of over one metre and a half, which almost reaches two and a half metres when the passenger seat is tilted (a record considering that the vehicle has an exterior length of only 386 cm). In addition, the load platform is equipped with six sturdy and practical rings for restraining goods, while the loading threshold, of only 527 mm, facilitates loading and unloading operations.
