Appearing for the first time at the CV Show at the NEC in Birmingham, the new Fiat Scudo Panorama eight-seater appeared alongside Villa stars Alan Hutton and Eric Lichaj.
The players, who are currently taking part in a relegation battle from the English Premiership, the top level of English football, will at least be able to travel to games in comfort thanks to the new van.
The van has been created by Fiat as part of its fleet deal at the club which also includes a number of cars as well.
“I am delighted that Alan and Eric were able to come and view the new minibus,” says Sebastiano Fedrigo, director, Fiat Professional. “This is a hugely successful partnership with one of England’s most famous football clubs and I am sure the vehicles we supply will be extremely useful to them as they move towards the end of the season.”
The Fiat Scudo Panorama features eight seats and side-sliding doors for easier access to the rear seats.
Available with diesel engines in 90, 120, 140 and 165bhp power outputs, the Fiat Scudo Panorama comes with a radio/CD player, air conditioning and front fog lights, depending on the specification chosen.
Available in five- or eight-seat form, Fiat Scudo Panorama van prices start from £21,745 before VAT for the entry-level short wheelbase, five-seat version.
The new Fiat Scudo Panorama is one of several people carriers in the new Fiat range, including the Fiat Qubo compact MPV and the larger Fiat Doblo MPV.
Fiat cars and vans are available now from Fiat UK dealerships.
