2014 Trade Van Driver

Fiat Professional and Fiat Doblo work up win in 2014 Trade Van Driver Awards

Trade Van Driver, the UK’s top van magazine for small business users, has named the FIAT Professional line-up “Best Trade Van Range” in its 2014 Trade Van Driver Awards. The magazine, which is the only publication to cater specifically for owner-drivers and small fleet operators, also named the FIAT Doblò Work Up as the “Best Small Pick Up” in its 2014 awards.

Both trophies were presented to Sebastiano Fedrigo, Director, FIAT Professional UK, by Matthew Eisenegger, Editor of Trade Van Driver, at the 2014 Commercial Vehicle show which was held at The NEC Birmingham recently. Adjudicated not only by a team of expert TVD journalists but also by a panel of readers who use light commercial vehicles as an integral part of their businesses, the Trade Van Driver awards offer a true reflection of the sentiments of those customers who use their commercial vehicles day to day.

Commenting on the FIAT Professional range, the adjudication panel noted: “The needs of trade users are many and varied and FIAT Professional has taken massive strides in the past few years towards fulfilling all those requirements. FIAT Professional offers a superb range of models and has a real “can do” attitude towards trade buyers: A worthy winner indeed!”

Commenting on the second successive win for the FIAT Doblò Work Up in the “Small Pick Up” category, the jury noted that since winning last year “…no-one has come up with a better alternative. The FIAT Doblò Work Up offers tough pick-up quality but with excellent car-like comfort – a truly winning combination!”

Sebastiano Fedrigo, Director, FIAT Professional UK, noted: “Winning these prestigious Trade Van Driver awards highlights not only the broad appeal of our commercial vehicle range, it also emphasises how important the owner-operator and small fleet market is to us. We not only tailor our vehicles to meet their needs and desires, as is evident in the factory-built Doblò Work Up pick up and exciting new Sportivo trim levels, we also strive to offer exceptional value for money, low running costs, competitive finance packages and unbeatable aftersales care. We understand the needs of small businesses and FIAT Professional is here to meet those needs.”
