Fiat Fiorino van returns best MPG in economy test

A new Fiat Fiorino Cargo van more than proved its miserly fuel claims after winning the Overall Best MPG title in the ALD Automotive Shell FuelSave MPG Marathon

The 1.3 MultiJet Diesel 75 Euro 5 van returned 82.96mpg over the economy test’s 370 mile course using less than four and a half gallons of fuel to take the title. And the overall mpg figure achieved was 26.27 per cent better than the official combined figure for the van.

Driven by motoring journalist John Kerswill and partnered by Ian McKean, the Fiorino van also claimed best mpg figures in its class.

“I was really impressed that the Fiorino was able to achieve over 80mpg on a tough route that included plenty of steep hills, heavy traffic and strong headwinds,” says John Kerswill. “It’s a great little van to drive, too.”

“We know the Fiorino Cargo is an economical van to own and drive, so it’s great news when our claims are proved so conclusively in a tough test like this one,” says Paul Godden, brand manager, Fiat Professional.

The MPG Marathon, now in its 11th year, challenges the UK’s top eco-drivers to get the best possible mpg figures from their vehicle, and aims to set motorists thinking about the impact they have on fuel consumption.

The Fiat Fiorino Cargo range starts at £9,695 (basic) for the 1.4 8v Petrol 75 Euro 5, rising to £12,645 (basic) for the Adventure 1.3 MultiJet Diesel 95 Euro 5.
