A place to be shared with family and friends: a liveable area for people who travel and love to be in company; for people who choose the Doblò as a companion for relaxation or work. A vehicle created to satisfy a need for functionality and comfort that makes the most of interior space and can hold up to seven people.
Compared to the earlier version that sold nearly one million cars, the new Fiat Doblo has been completely renewed in terms of style, engines and technical specs. All this has been accomplished through the use of a new platform, more passenger space (with a wheelbase of 2755 mm, the biggest in its segment), a roomy 790 litre luggage compartment, reduced CO2 emissions (129 g/km with the 1.3 Multijet 90 HP engine, the most economical in its category), safety features and highly modular interiors with seats that can be folded and tilted.
Style and comfort
The look is very cutting-edge. With a central shield and side bumpers that are excellently integrated with the body, the front end blends protection and elegance while the pronounced wheel arch and sloping shoulder contribute to the vehicle's strong and sharp appearance. The tailgate's essential lines emphasise the accessibility and size of the large load compartment; clear, sparkling light clusters and expanses of glass give the new Doblò a touch of style.
Smart solutions for the best use of on-board space, such as a range of storage compartments and flexible interiors, offering up to 7 places, will satisfy the needs of those who make the Doblò a car to be enjoyed with family or friends.
Environment and economy
The Fiat Doblò will offer 4 power units at its launch: a 95 HP petrol engine and three diesel Multijet engines, 90, 105 and 135 HP, which will later be joined by a Natural Power engine with dual fuel system (petrol and methane) and an additional diesel engine with Dualogic robotized gearbox.
All units are lively and offer smooth torque delivery. They are remarkable for driving pleasure, great performance, low noise levels, low operating costs (fuel consumption and maintenance) and also for their safety and eco-friendliness.
The range is available with Euro 4 and Euro 5 versions and offers a Start&Stop device as standard, which cuts off the engine momentarily when the car is stopped to ensure reduced fuel consumption and emissions.
To guarantee optimum dynamic behaviour, comfort and active safety in all road surface and load conditions, the vehicle has been equipped with innovative mechanical features including a bi-link rear suspension system prepared with various component calibrations depending on vehicle application. The Doblò's consistent and foreseen road-holding is also guaranteed by the use of state-of-the-art electronic devices for stability control, namely ABS with electronic brake force distribution EBD and, above all, ESP complemented by a hill-holder system that helps the driver during Hill starts and comes as standard on this model.
The vehicle has been designed and built to achieve the highest levels of passive safety, due to a body with crumple zones, front air bags and innovative front side bags. The latter offer protection for both head and chest.
The vehicle also offers technical solutions and equipment that create optimum comfort conditions and help keep attention on the road: these include an automatic climate control system with distribution to rear seats, cruise control, parking sensors, a built-in Blue&Me hands-free system and a “Blue&Me TomTom” GPS navigator.
The Doblò Cargo, also new, is at the top of the professional vehicle category
The new Fiat Doblò is joined by the new Doblò Cargo which has been designed to take its place at the top of its category in terms of performance and functional features. It offers a more roomy load compartment than the previous model: square, regular, fully exploitable and equipped with sliding side doors and generously-sized rear doors to make light work of loading and unloading operations. Record-breaking statistics (interior length up to 2.2 metres, width between wheel arches of 1.23 metres, volume from 3.4 to 4.2 cubic metres, payload from 750 to 1000 Kg, combined fuel consumption of 4.8 litres/100 km and range of 1250 Km with the 1.3 Multijet engine) ensure that the new vehicle can offer real benefits in terms of optimisation and reduction of running costs.
The range finds expression in 7 different body types: short and long wheelbase van, high top van, short and long wheelbase 5-seater combi; a particularly appealing and brand-new short and long drop-framed version can be easily and cheaply converted for specific trades (refrigeration chambers, fixed and tilting flatbed trucks).
The new Fiat Doblo are due to be launched from mid-January 2010, but it will be possible to order the vehicles from the end of November in Italy and from December in other European markets.
