SLOUGH, UNITED KINGDOM – Dec 19, 2013: The FIAT Professional range has enjoyed more award success this week, with the FIAT Doblo Cargo securing the “Light Van of the Year” award in the 2014 What Van? Awards, the fourth year in succession it has won this prestigious accolade.

The What Van? judging panel has once again lauded the FIAT DoblÚ Cargo's class-leading blend of versatility, eco-friendliness, driver appeal, technology and the strong value it represents to a broad swathe of customers, be they large corporations, small businesses or owner-operators.

“FIAT’s DoblÚ Cargo again leads its segment in providing the best option for operators seeking a practical and economical light van,” said What Van? Editor Paul Barker. “The styling, breadth of range and cost-efficiency all help bring Fiat Professional’s light van to the top of the sector.”

Commenting on the award, Sebastiano Fedrigo, director, FIAT Professional UK noted: "This is one of the most competitive segments in the LCV market and to be recognised for the fourth successive year by the experts at What Van? is very gratifying for everyone at FIAT Professional who works hard to keep the DoblÚ Cargo ahead of the game by offering our customers more choice, lower running costs and more technology.”

The What Van? Awards are decided by the editorial team of the UK’s leading light commercial vehicle title, and reward the top performers in the van industry.

The FIAT DoblÚ Cargo is built on a bespoke platform that bestows it with tremendous versatility and adaptability. With a payload of up to one tonne and a load volume of up to 5.0m3, the DoblÚ Cargo has impressive carrying capacity both in terms of weight and size, while the Bi-Link rear suspension ensures a smooth ride and surefooted handling. Its engine range continues to evolve to provide both lower emissions and running costs, particularly when combined with FIAT Professional’s Blue&Me eco:Drive technology, which manages driver behaviour to encourage more economical and efficient driving.

The award-winning load-carrier is available with a choice of five highly efficient engines and offers customers an astonishing number of variants: Cargo; Cargo Maxi; Cargo SX; Cargo Maxi SX; Combi; Combi Maxi; Platform Cab and, most recently, Work Up pickup; XL and Maxi Crew Van and high-specification Tecnico model with air conditioning and Blue&Me satellite navigation.
