Talento 12 LWB Diesel 2.0 Ecojet 145 Tecnico Van
Launched in 2016, the Talento is a rebadged version of the Renault Trafic Van, which, despite being launched two years earlier, is still one of the best mid-sized vans in the segment.
Everything except the grille and badges are shared parts with the Renault, which means that when the Trafic gets an update, so too does the Talento. New for the 2020 model year, the medium-sized Fiat van gets a new engine and revamped interior to ensure that it stays up to date when compared with key rivals such as the Citroen Dispatch, Peugeot Expert and Ford Transit Custom vans.
The previous 1.6-litre engine, which was available with either single or twin turbochargers, has now been replaced by a 2.0-litre engine producing up to 167bhp.
The larger engine now has only a single variable-geometry turbocharger and, as a result, produces roughly the same power and torque; there are 117bhp, 143bhp and 167bhp options, producing 236lb ft, 258lb ft and 280lb ft respectively. It is also up to 2% more efficient, according to Renault.
Renault and Fiat also differentiate their offerings by selling them with different equipment options, chief of which is that the Talento is not sold with the option of an automatic gearbox, instead coming only with a six-speed manual.
