2020 Fiat Talento Boasts New Engine, Becomes More Connected

Fiat’s rebadged version of the Renault Traffic, Opel/Vauxhall Vivaro and Nissan NV300, the Talento, has been given a mild update that should keep it on the competitive side for a few more years.

The biggest change is the introduction of the 2.0-liter EcoJet diesel engine, which meets the Euro6d-Temp emission standards, providing more power and being up to 11 percent more fuel efficient than the previous 1.6-liter unit.

Available in three outputs, with 120, 145 and 170 PS (118/143/168 hp / 88/107/125 kW) and 320, 350 and 380 Nm (236/258/280 lb-ft) of torque respectively, it packs variable geometry turbocharging for smoother rides and better performance at low speeds. It also gets Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) that reduces CO2 emissions by injecting an AdBlue solution into the exhaust gas.

The engine lineup is completed by the turbo’d 1.6-liter EcoJet, which produces 95 PS (94 hp / 70 kW) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque.

The interior retains the same layout and rugged fabrics, but gets new black trim. Fiat also added a 7-inch infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth and DAB radio, as well as an USB input.

The 2020 Talento is available in several body styles, including low and high roofs, crew cab, floor cab and a passenger variant, as well as in two lengths and two different wheelbases. It has between 5.2 and 8.6 cubic meters (183.6-303.7 cu-ft) of space inside and a payload that can reach 1,266 kg (2,791 lbs). Furthermore, by opening a partition located under the passenger seats, it can carry objects that measure up to 3.75 meters (12.3 feet) in length, or 4.15 meters (13.6 feet) in the long wheelbase model.

    Why does Fiat need a rebadged Renault in their lineup? Are they falling behind in the commercial vehicles market as well?

      What do you mean? There where trios from FIAT/Peugeot/Citroen for decades.

      You don’t understand the LCV business in Europe, and frankly, I don’t think anyone does at this point.
      They’ve all been sharing production and development costs for years.

      Opel/Vauxhall, Peugeot, Citroen, Nissan, Renault, Mercedes, VW, Fiat, Toyota, Ford, they all have connections and badge-engineered vehicles.

    More ‘connected’? So you better watch what you say or some ‘toughs’ will come by and teach you some manners!

    I was completely unaware that this even existed, despite it apparently being offered for sale in the UK. I see plenty of Ducatos, but to my knowledge, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Talento.

      The Panda and 500 each sell more units than the VW Group’s Up!/Mii/Citigo triplets can manage combined. They shifted 188,448 500s and 168,094 Pandas in 2018, and took almost 40% of Europe’s city car market in the process.
