2016 Review of the Fiat Scudo Refrigerated Van
Theis a powerful yet somewhat understated refrigerated . It is, perhaps, not as well known in comparison to other of a similar size and ability, but it is a quality addition for any refrigerating business.
Theis a perfect option if you are looking for a refrigerated that isn’t quite as big as the Ducato, yet is sizeable enough to offer practicality in terms of load handling.
The Scudo is a no-frills hard worker. Some of its features include Electronic Stability Control and driver airbags. If you have more than just the driver in theduring working hours, you can go with the additional airbags option. The dashboard on the is classic. There is a music system with fairly loud speakers, but the Sat Nav is an optional extra, rather than ‘as standard’. The scores 3 stars in the EuroNCAP test.
As is the case with most of the refrigeratedin the market today, the Scudo is pretty much identical to many other . The two closest examples are the Jumpy and the Expert. The Scudo can equally be considered as an alternative to other like the and Hiace, as well as the and .
Driving and Handling
Theoffers solid all weather driving due to the Electronic Stability Control feature. This makes it a good addition for any refrigerated business that delivers round the clock, round the year. Driving in the Scudo is comfortable and relatively quiet, and the is a front wheel drive.
This is understandably the most important feature for refrigeratedbusinesses, and for good reason. However, the sails through here with flying colours. With two sliding doors and swinging barn doors at the back, loading and unloading, even in tight environments, is a breeze with the Scudo. The Scudo features a 6 cubic metre cargo space and there is a 1245mm gap between the rear wheel arches. The Scudo has a 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbo diesel, which amounts to 88kW and 300N. The strong engine has been well-refined, making it a top option for any refrigerated business looking for a trusty commercial . The engine comes with a six-speed manual transmission gearbox, but there is no automatic shifting option. This may put some businesses off, but the gearbox is very good, and actually quite fun.
Aside from the lack of an automatic option, we think theis a great addition for your refrigerated business. It should be considered a serious contender when you are looking for a medium sized refrigerated that you can trust. Fiat have entered the market and consistently produced good quality vans. This is a company that is fast gaining traction in the market.
