Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Traditionally, the Fiat Ducato has been one of the more affordable large vans, but when you pile on the options it becomes pretty pricey; high-spec vans are up with the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Volkswagen Crafter in terms of purchase price. 

On top of the standard base specification there are three “Packs” available: Tecnico, Tecnico Plus and Business Edition. Technico upgrades the infotainment screen from 5.0in to 7.0in and adds electric mirrors, Bluetooth and wireless phone charging. Tecnico Plus pack adds automatic climate control, while Business Edition upgrades the U Connect screen to 10in and adds navigation and a digital instrument cluster – rather than standard dials. This last pack is pricey, but we reckon the extra comfort and convenience that Business Edition brings makes it worth considering.

Overview

The Fiat Ducato has a tall task to stand out in a packed market, but it does a good job. It delivers a great blend of practicality and comfort, and is available in a huge range of derivatives. And, while the top models are expensive, many will think the high specification justifies the price.

  • Large payload capability
  • Elegant interior design
  • Comprehensive safety systems
  • Infotainment is glitchy
  • Slightly unsettled rear suspension
  • Top specs are pricey
