Trade Van Driver, the UK’s top van magazine for small business users, has named FIAT Professional’s widely-acclaimed Doblò Cargo as the Best Small Van in the 2016 Trade Van Driver Awards. The magazine is the only publication which caters for the owner-driver and small fleet operator and the awards are judged not only by the magazine’s expert panel of judges, but also by a panel of readers who use light commercial vehicles as part of their businesses.
Matthew Eisenegger, Editor of Trade Van Driver, said: “FIAT’s functional approach to the design and practicalities of a small commercial vehicle make the Doblò Cargo the perfect tool for trade users who need a small van.
“Trade Van Driver Magazine prides itself on offering a true reflection of the thoughts and feelings of its readership,” he added.
Commenting on this latest award for Doblò Cargo, Andrea Patti, Marketing Manager, FIAT Professional UK says: “We are delighted that our Doblò Cargo has secured the Best Small Van award against increasingly strong competition. It is pleasing that the judges have recognised the class-leading attributes our Doblò Cargo range provides to small business users.”
This latest accolade joins an already impressive list of awards for the FIAT Doblò Cargo in 2016, which have included winning the 'Light Van of the Year' award at the 2016 What Van? Awards, being named VansA2Z’s ‘Light Van of the Year 2016’ and winning the ‘Best Small Van’ award in the 2016 Van Fleet World Honours.
The Best Small Van award was presented to Andrea Patti, Marketing Manager, FIAT Professional UK, by Matthew Eisenegger, Editor of Trade Van Driver, at the 2016 Commercial Vehicle show held at The NEC Birmingham this week.
The Trade Van Driver Awards aim to give recognition to the manufacturers, firms and people who, in the opinion of the judges, offer the very best to retail van buyers.
