Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

We would recommend avoiding the Standard models altogether, because limited resale appeal for such sparsely equipped vans will hurt you when it either comes to sell or inflate the monthly payments on a lease because of the proportionately higher depreciation.

To an extent, the same can be said for SX trim, which really doesn’t give you much in the way of equipment or creature comforts.

In contrast, the two higher trims offer remarkably good value for money compared with pricier vans in the highly competitive medium van segment.

Those two trim levels also automatically get the new touchscreen infotainment system, which is a definite upgrade over the standard Bluetooth-enabled DAB radio.

The Talento is backed up by a four -year, 100,000-mile warranty, and the Fiat Professional dealers are one of the more capable commercial vehicle-focused networks on offer.

Overview

The Fiat Talento might be a copy of the Renault Trafic, but the different packages offered by Fiat, coupled with the Fiat Professional dealer network, make this mid-sized van a sensible and affordable option in its own right. Good value for money and strong equipment levels on the higher trim packages help the Talento compete on price as well as performance.

  • Good value top-end models
  • Well supported dealer network
  • Innovative cabin features
  • Not the best for driver and passenger storage
  • Wind noise in an otherwise quiet cab
  • No automatic gearbox option
