Performance & drive

What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is

In the past, the Fiat Ducato’s engine options differed from those offered in the otherwise similar Citroën Relay and Peugeot Boxer, and this made the Ducato stand out. Times have changed, though, and it is now a shared group engine that finds its way under the bonnet. It’s no disaster, though, because the 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine that Fiat calls Multijet 3 is an economical performer and comes with a range of power ratings. 

Fiat calls its engine line-up 120 HP, 140 HP, 160 HP and 180 HP which is a close approximation of the power each produces – the actual figures are 119bhp, 140bhp, 157bhp and 174bhp. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard, with a nine-speed automatic optional on all models except the least powerful engine.
