Ducato Conversion | Commercial Vehicles | Fiat Professional

Model overview


    Safety at work is key

    Braking system

    For responsive and progressive braking and reduced stopping distances Gradual braking for total control of your vehicle

    • Consists of two independent hydraulic, power-assisted crossover circuits with 4 disc brakes, self-ventilated at the front. 
    • ABS comes as standard, featuring a control unit with 8 solenoid valves, 4 active sensors and 4 channels with EBD electronic brake force distribution, and MBA (Mechanical Brake Assistance).
    • The system also includes the HBA (Hydraulic Brake Assistance) device, which helps you when braking in emergency conditions by increasing the braking pressure.


    The electronic stability control system

    Ensures that your new Ducato has perfect road control, with:

    • LAC - electronic road control - evaluates the vehicle's load and the centre of gravity in order to adjust the action of the ESP;
    • ASR - the traction control function prevents one or both driving wheels from slipping
    • MSR - during downwards gear changes, this system supplies torque to the engine and avoids excessive slipping of the drive wheels;
    • Hill Holder, invaluable for hill starts, which extends the braking pressure when the brake pedal is released to prevent the vehicle from slipping backwards, making the manoeuvre much easier.

    Available on request.

    Dusk and rain sensor

    For optimum visibility, always

    Located at the top of the windscreen, 

    • this function checks exterior brightness in order to turn on the headlights automatically (side lights and dipped headlights). 
    • If it rains, it operates the windscreen wipers, managing the windscreen sweep rate based on the amount of water detected.

    Rear-view mirrors

    Equipped with a double parabolic lens
    The Ducato's rear view mirrors make every manoeuvre easier. They incorporate side direction indicators and three antennas for Radio, GPS (optional) and GSM (optional). 

    The mirrors may be equipped with electric adjustment and demister function on request.

    Passenger compartment

    Designed and built to offer maximum safety
    The Ducato is one of the safest vehicles in its segment, and has undergone 
    • 20,000 hours of mathematical modelling 
    • 120 crash tests
    • 150 simulations with a HyGe slide 
    • 200 tests on components and subsystems.

    The chassis and the controlled collapse body shell have been designed to absorb impact safely and effectively. 

    The result is a rigid passenger structure - the passenger compartment is a non-deformable chamber - complemented by high energy absorbing areas, external to the passenger compartment.

    Airbags and seat belts

    Maximum protection for both driver and passengers

    Available with 5 airbags

    • driver airbag as standard; 
    • full-size, 120 litre passenger airbag (can be deactivated), which protects both passengers if the cab is configured with a two-seater bench; 
    • side airbags, which ensure protection for the chest;
    • window bags which ensure head protection.

    All airbags are controlled by a sophisticated electronic control unit that uses sensors installed on the vehicle to decide which and how many protection devices should be activated in the event of an impact.

    All seats are fitted with three point seat belts, with pre-tensioners and load limiters.
