Fiat Ducato - best large panel vans

There's more to the Ducato than just a tech-sharing partnership with Peugeot/Citroen

If the Fiat Ducato looks familiar, that's because it shares a lot of its tech and construction with the Citroen Relay/Peugeot Boxer duo. The big difference, though, is that Fiat uses its own engines.

That means you have a choice of 2.0 115 Multijet or 2.2 Multijet in 130, 150 or 180 guises. Not only that, but the 150 version also comes in Ecojet guise with additional fuel saving tech included. There's even an electric conversion available, should you need one.

One thing that doesn't change over the PSA models is the cargo volumes that the Ducato can carry. There's a maximum cargo volume of up to 17 cubic metres, while payloads are available up to 2.2 tonnes.

As well as the panel van, there's a spacious crew van variant and a dropside or tipper, which comes in either single or double cab forms. Whichever version you choose, the Fiat can be had with a traction control system that can compensate for off-road driving, while the stability control automatically adjusts according to the amount of payload and its distribution in the load area.
