styling, compact external dimensions and large loading
The new Fiorino
has a modern, distinctive design that combines dynamic,
compact styling with the solidity and strength of a work
vehicle. Thanks to its limited external dimensions – it is
3.86 metres long, 1.72 high and 1.71 wide – it can handle
any city centre with confidence, and the sturdy front end
with a distinctive personality mean that it won’t go
unnoticed. The front end is enhanced with bumper guards and
the original design of the large headlights that blend
harmoniously into the bodywork. The bonnet creates
continuity with the windscreen and reflects the curvy shape
of the bumpers.
The racy lateral line and smooth sides give the new Fiorino
an extremely dynamic look. The protective side strips and
vertically-positioned handles on the sliding doors are
durable and solid. The windowed versions have a single flush
window surface while the smooth space on the panel versions
allows for easy customisation. The square lines of the rear
section instantly give the idea of great capacity and ease
of loading, thanks to the very low loading sill, double rear
doors and sliding side doors, available in glazed or panel
The new Fiorino is a robust, practical vehicle but is also
attractive to look at, as can be seen from the wide range of
available colours. There are 10 external finishes and a long
list of non-standard colours mainly for specific customers.
As far as the interiors are concerned, there are two types
of upholstery featuring different contrasts and fabrics.
Special attention has also been paid to the aerodynamics –
something which is very important for commercial vehicles
considering the impact it has on performance, consumption,
noise but also style. The shape of the new Fiorino was first
studied using computer simulations and was then subjected to
numerous wind-tunnel tests. The shape of the wing mirrors,
front lights and rear spoiler gives the vehicle an excellent
drag coefficient of 0.31 and an excellent front-end Cx
result (0.828 m2), placing the Fiorino at the top of its
Large, functional loading
Despite its compact size, the new Fiorino boasts a spacious,
square, well-designed loading area, making it the ideal
workmate. The loading platform has a volume of 2.5 cubic
metres (2.8 if the passenger seat is folded down). All this
available space can be exploited to the full, thanks to an
internal length of 1.523 m that becomes almost 2.5 metres if
the passenger seat is folded down: amazing if we consider
that the vehicle’s external length is less than 3.9 metres.
Added to a load capacity of 610 kg (driver included), this
makes the Fiorino a new standard of reference. To make
loading and unloading easier, the new Fiorino has a loading
sill of just 527 mm. Access to the loading area is made
easier with the large, well-designed doors: the asymmetrical
double rear door has a minimum width of 1056 mm and a
maximum of 1140 mm with minimum/maximum heights of
1040/1060mm. The sliding side doors are 570/644 mm wide
(min/max) and 1041 mm high.
The cab’s front doors are equipped with two opening
positions – the first at around 60° and a maximum angle of
85° - allowing for easy entry and exit. The asymmetrical
double rear doors (40/60) have 4 locking points, one of
which is central. The two doors open to 90°, offering
excellent access to the cargo area. They can open as far as
180° thanks to an ingenious system of retractable tie-rods.
The sliding side door features a bearing rail on the upper
part and a sliding guide in the centre of the bodywork.
Combined with the easy and convenient handle grip, this
robust design is serviceable, effective and reliable.
To keep the cargo secure during transport, the new Fiorino
has six strong, practical rings (compliant with the DIN
75410 standard). Various types of partition are available to
protect the driver from goods spilling over into the cab.
The vehicle is fitted with a nine-bar steel ladder-type
bulkhead as standard. The bulkhead can be glazed, panelled
or a combination of panel and metal (panel up to seat belt
height with a grille above). On request, a 2-part grille is
also available (one part fixed on the driver’s side, the
other rotating on the passenger side), combined with the
fold-down seat. A side roof light can be fitted to
illuminate the loading area (a removable light is also
available on request, for use as a removable torch). The
light comes on automatically when the doors are opened, and
is timed to avoid wasting energy.
