The Fiat Ducato has confirmed its unrivalled dominance in the motorhome market after winning yet another industry award.
Awarded the Which Motorhome? Base Vehicle accolade for the fifth consecutive year, the model beat off stiff competition from others designed for the motorhome market.
Judges noted that the Fiat Ducato offers "by far the best combination of price, performance, handling, specification and different derivatives", and in particular praised its six-speed Comfort-Matic automatic transmission.
"While the 2.3-litre MultiJet engine is a great all-rounder, the 3-litre is such a refined powerhouse that it’s hard to resist spending the extra money," they added.
Fiat runs a European network of 7,400 Ducato service centres, while also offering a Ducato Camper call centre and website.
Gerry Clarke, director at Fiat Professional UK, said the win was key due to the importance placed on the industry award.
