Work and travel with maximum peace of mind 

Power steering
Makes parking manoeuvres easier.

Servotronic
The variable steering booster which reduces the effort required to turn the wheel compared with a standard hydraulic power steering system, and guarantees maximum driving precision at high speeds.

Braking system

Braking system 

  • For responsive and progressive braking and reduced stopping distance
  • Consists of 2 independent hydraulic, power-assisted crossover circuits with 4 disc brakes, self-ventilated at the front 

Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)

  • Comes as standard, featuring a control unit with 8 solenoid valves4 active sensors and 4 channels, with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) andMechanical Brake Assistance (MBA)

Electronic Stability Control

Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
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 ESC
  • ASR - the traction control function prevents one or both driving wheels from slipping
  • MSR - during downwards gear changes, this system uses engine torque to prevent locking of the drive wheels
  • Hill Holder - invaluable for hill starts, extends the braking pressure when the brake pedal is released to prevent the vehicle from slipping backwards, making the manoeuvre much easier
  • The system also includes the Hydraulic Brake Assistance (HBA) device, which helps you brake when in emergency conditions by increasing the braking pressure. 

Dusk and Rain Sensor

  • Always located at the top of the windscreen for optimum visibility, 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 Visibility

Rear Visibility
The devices that actively assist you when parking in tight spaces and where visibility is impeded. 

Rear-View Mirrors

  • Equipped with double parabolic lenses, the Ducato's rear view mirrors make every manoeuvre easier.
  • The mirrors may be equipped with electric adjustment and demister function on request.

Passenger Compartment
Work in complete calm

The Ducato is one of the safest vehicles in its segment, and has undergone:

  • 20, 000 hours of mathematical modeling
  • 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.

Passenger Compartment
Airbags and seat belts

Airbags and seat belts
Maximum protection for both driver and passengers

  • Available as standard: driver airbag
  • Available on request: full-size, 120 liter passenger airbag (can be deactivated), which protects both passengers if the cab is configured with a two-seater bench
  • Side airbags that 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.
