Styled by business needs
Signed by the Fiat Styling Centre, the design of the New Ducato has a streamlined appearance evoking the dynamism of high-speed trains. Italian style goes hand in hand with a rational, down-to-earth approach. Each and every design detail meets specific functionality and performance requirements.

The front bumper is a major element in the new design of the Ducato: strong, protective, wraparound, it consists of 3 parts that can be replaced individually if they get damaged in a crash, making for lower running costs.

Original and distinctive, the great headlamps make up a light cluster with a truly advanced look, projecting in the upward direction the dynamic lines of the front section. Their high position makes for optimised lighting and a reduced risks of their being damaged in the event of crash. The design of the front section, so compact and modern, expresses determination.

The vehicle sides feature clean lines and plenty of room for vehicle personalisation. Specially striking are the side mouldings that protect the bodyshell against small bumps.

The design of the rear section, with squared lines and the bumper connected to the side mouldings, gets across an impression of great sturdiness; distinctive, squared traits contribute to improved linearity and load space.

Inside, we find a car-like environment: the cab was fashioned with comfort as the prior consideration. The new inclination of the steering-wheel, the facia-mounted gearshift lever, the instruments legible at a glance and controls that can be readily reached and activated, make the driving comfortable and relaxing.

The driverís seat can be adjusted longitudinally, for height and backseat inclination: the entire cab has been designed to welcome people of any build and to enable them to work most effectively.

Storage compartments, pockets, supports, writing boards and drawers help you to organise and keep at hand your documents and all the items you may need in your daily life, making the cab into a veritable mobile office.

To make the cab even more habitable, the engineering team worked on acoustic and vibration aspects to stop, absorb and dampen any noise or jolt directly at the source through ad hoc improvements to the suspension setup, the engines and the bodyshell, as well as through sound-proofing treatments. The results obtained are brilliant: interior noise in the Ducato cockpit is comparable to that of a medium-sized car.

Moreover, onboard climate is always ideal, thanks to a system designed for optimal distribution of air flows and the available of two climate control options (manual and automatic) and three extra heater configurations. Moreover, a reflecting windshield can also be had on request: it uses a laminated glass pane enclosing an invisible film of metal oxides that reflects a proportion of the solar energy, thereby reducing the heat that penetrates into the cockpit.
