This guide is specifically about the third generation Fiat Ducato's dimensions. That's to say it's for the van that was launched in 2007 and has been on sale ever since. It's built as the Sevel Sud van plant in Atessa and as such it shares its platform and size with the Peugeot Boxer and Citroen Relay. In later life, Vauxhall also took on the chassis as the Vauxhall Movano, from 2021 onwards.

Amongst the most popular questions people ask the Fiat Ducato and its dimensions are:

What is the Fiat Ducato length in meters?

The average height of a UK male adult is actually 178cm (that's 5ft 10in), so most people will easily be able to stand in the back of the Ducato.
