la Strada Avanti F
La strada introduced the AvantiI F in August 2014 as a vehicle suitable for families. The vehicle has a large double bed in the rear of the van and a stow away bed above the front lounge. Prices start from EUR53,800.
The base vehicle of the Avanti F is the new Fiat Ducato. Changes that Fiat has made to its vehicle include the standard electronic stability programme (ESP) being upgraded to the Rollover Mitigation System, the Hill-Holder, the Anti Slip Regulation (ASR) as well as the electronic Brake Assistance (EBA). Optionally the Avanti F can be ordered with the Lane Departure Warning and a traffic sign Identification system. Within the technical package, the van features the Traction + system, a self-locking differential including Hill Descent Control.
The vehicle measures 636cm x 205cm. It offers turbo diesel engines ranging from 115 to 180 horse power.
The beds have the Froli support system and measure 197 x 142 cm in the rear and 200 x 130 cm in the front.
Plenty of storage space
The garage is located under the rear bed. This storage can be reached through a trap door from the inside of the van as well as via the two rear van doors. In the garage the user will find the heating system, the leisure battery, the on-board electric system, two gas bottles and still plenty of room for the personal belongings. The highlight of the garage though, certainly is the fact that the rear part of the bed can be lifted up to the ceiling of the vehicle: this enlarges the storage place and allows two bicycles or other bulky goods to be loaded inside.
Lounge for four
The original FIAT captains’ seats are covered with the matching fabric of the superstructure. Both armrests are covered by fabric.
The rear seats with adjustable headrests in the living area are belted and can be adjusted into four different positions: the rear position while driving and eating, the front positions while relaxing.
The door is equipped with a sliding fly screen door which flushes perfectly with the side of the van.
Heatable double floor
The van has a heated double floor which can also be used for storage accessed through various trap doors throughout the floor.
When the sliding door is open, a drawer in the rear lower part of the kitchen bloc can be slid out and used as storage and as an outside table at the same time.
A wardrobe is mounted next to the refrigerator and several upper cupboards are placed around the rear bed.
The kitchen bloc is located in the central part of the vehicle. The built-in 3-hob cooker has piezo ignition and the folding wooden board on the left side of the kitchen furniture enlarges the working surface. The refrigerator with AES function and a capacity of 80l is positioned right next to the cooker and washbasin.
Several large drawers under the hob offer storage room for pots and pans, while smaller ones on the opposite side are foreseen for other utensils and personal belongings.
Two swinging doors on the opposite side of the kitchen separate the bathroom from the aisle. This place saving solution offers more space inside the bathroom as well as when passing from one side of the interior to the other.
