FIAT Professional has revealed a new model that is expected to be the best partner for professionals whether they are driving on major highways or on city streets. The new Talento also offers a large load capacity and has both the versatility and the capability to adjust in order to meet the various needs of the customers.
The name is the Italian word for "talent", which is an ancient coin, and brings to mind the distinctive qualities of this vehicle as well as the principles of FIAT Professional as it relates to dependability and value.
Moreover, the name brings with it a high symbolic value and reminds everyone what it can do. Looking at it from the perspective of design, it is clear that the Talento, while compact, is well-proportioned.
An example of this is the forward- stretching windscreen which manages to gracefully connect with the short bonnet to result in giving the front end a dynamic and imposing appearance. The grille meanwhile wraps itself around the headlights to give the appearance of a mask.
When combined with the bumper, the whole grid displays a striking and solid look. In addition to the aesthetics, it also has a function which is to provide protection. The rear end on the other hand has been squared allowing for high load capacity and enough inner room.
It also enables the Talento to show a broad stance that conveys strength and stability. Overall, the design is upstanding and uses clear-cut and bold lines, which are characteristic of FIAT’s Professional range. Powering the Talento is the efficient turbo and the twin-turbo diesel engine paired with the six-speed manual transmission.
This pairing manages to deliver maximum power output of 145 hp. The Talento is therefore a functional vehicle that manages to maximize the value of the customer’s investment, time, and work.
It does this by concentrating on customer needs and it does not matter whether the same customers drive a flat bed, people-carrier, crew cab, or even a van.
In the FIAT Professional line-up, the Talento is placed between the Ducato and the Doblò Cargo. Orders for the Talento will be accepted starting mid-May. Final pricing as well as the final specifications will be released prior to its official launch in the U.K.
