Fiat celebrates What Van? win

Italian car maker Fiat is carving itself a solid reputation in the commercial van sector.

Indeed, the firm recently picked up a coveted industry award for its hugely-popular Doblo Cargo model.

The vehicle, launched just two years ago, is the latest recipient of the What Van? Light Van of the Year award.

According to the awards' judging panel, the van offers the perfect blend of economy, driveability and style.

What Van? editor Paul Barker, commented: "The Fiat Doblo Cargo has shown its quality again during 2011, and the judges were unanimous in deciding it is again a worthy winner of the What Van? Light Van of the Year award.

"An impressive combination of economy, appeal, durability and driving dynamics makes the Doblo Cargo our number one light van."

The news comes as Luton-based manufacturer Vauxhall saw its Corsavan crowned the Small Van of the Year and its ecoFLEX range handed the Green Award.
