Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

The Talento, like the Renault Trafic, has always been an above-average van when it comes to the dimensions of its load space.

The rear proportions have not been altered for this latest model, which means that the Talento still has one of the best load allowances of any mid-sized van, with up to 8.6m3 load volume possible.

Overall length for the short-wheelbase van remains at 4999mm, while the long-wheelbase version’s wheelbase is 5399mm; that equates to a rear storage length of 2537mm and 2937mm respectively. The addition of a load-through bulkhead adds more than 1.2m of additional length to allow you to move longer items such as pipes or timber. That means the length of the short-wheelbase van's load bay increases to 3750mm and a long-wheelbase model stretches to 4150mm.

The option of two roof heights and two lengths on two separate wheelbases means that the Talento is versatile for a range of uses. It has also enabled Fiat Professional to partner with a number of bodybuilders to create converted versions off a platform cab chassis.

Payload capacity ranges from 1075kg in vans with a gross vehicle weight of 2.8 tonnes through to a maximum of 1280kg in a 3.0-tonne van.

All models get a passenger side door fitted as standard, plus 180-degree rear doors, although there is the option of 250-degree openers.
