The new Fiat Scudo, Europe's current van of the year, will be launched officially in this country in two months' time in the guise of the 8-9-seater Combi version.

The new Scudo slots in just under the Ducato and offers the ultimate in flexible passenger transport, for professional and private use. The Scudo Combi is the ideal vehicle to transfer business clientele (hotel-airport shuttles, or rentals with driver), but it's equally user-friendly for large families looking for comfort and the styling typical of a people-mover.

Inside, the new Scudo design embodies modernity, comfort, quality and practicality. The facia has a two-tone treatment that enhances the its good looks more typical of a saloon than of a working vehicle.

The 2,0-litre Multijet delivers a maximum of 88kW at 3600 rpm and peak torque of 300 Nm at 2000 rpm. On the safety front, dual front airbags are standard as is ABS with EBD.

The Scudo will retail at R341000.
