The new year has brought yet another accolade for Fiat Ducato: the Fiat Professional best-seller has won the title of "Best Motorhome Base 2019" for the 12th consecutive time. The winner of the coveted award was selected by the readers of "Promobil", the specialist German magazine that has been a reference point for the recreational vehicle sector for more than 25 years.
Created specifically for motorhomes, the Fiat Ducato base was designed and developed in concert with the biggest European motorhome manufacturers, in what is a fast-growing sector.
Made at the Sevel Sud Plant (Europe's largest light commercial vehicle factory) in the Val di Sangro, it is exported all over the world; its successful features have been continuously refined since 1981 and Ducato is now a genuine trendsetter, produced in over 13,000 variants and sold in over 80 countries worldwide. The prestigious award reaffirms customers’ choice of the Ducato model as the ideal base for leisure vehicles, a choice that makes it a runaway Italian success year after year.
Just as it did 37 years ago, Ducato continues to revolutionise the light commercial vehicle segment. The sixth and latest generation boasts the highest payload in the sector, with an exceptionally balanced chassis and specific suspension for motorhomes that ensure reliable dynamic behaviour in all road conditions. A large number of active and passive safety devices provides peace of mind, even with the family on board, without ever skimping on comfort!
The brand’s leadership is further underlined by the fact that, today, three out of four motorhomes sold in Europe are built on a Ducato base: 500,000 families have chosen Ducato over the last 10 years. Its strengths have always been modularity, driveability and versatility, characteristics that have cemented the model’s success together with constant innovations and intelligent solutions aimed at improving quality of life on board, such as swivelling “captain’s chair” seats.
The Leader in Freedom: this is the essence of Fiat Ducato. A guarantee of responsiveness and solutions to any problem that customers may have during their holiday, from a leader whose offering of specific services for the motorhome world is unique and unrivalled on the market.
