The Fiat Doblo has always been about space – one that’s
versatile, practical and value for money for the family driver. Now the all-new
version builds on those qualities, yielding improved comfort, style, economy,
safety and running costs.
The Doblo is endowed with sufficient size and flexibility to make it a true all-rounder. At 4.39m, it’s 137mm longer than the model it replaces. But while the increase in length isn’t enough to have an impact on the Doblo’s manoeuvrability, it boosts the wheelbase by 172mm to a class-leading 2.75m, yielding more passenger space.
The boot has been enlarged as well. New Doblo’s luggage compartment is a sizeable 790 litres, again class-leading. But it’s the flexibility of this load area that’s one of the new car’s most impressive attributes.
Designed for all shapes and sizes of family, it has a highly versatile seating arrangement, meaning it can accommodate just about any combination of passengers and their luggage. All the seats in rows two and three tumble and fold or can be removed altogether. Doing that frees a cavernous 3200 litres of load space.
To make the most of the boot room there’s a clever height adjustable parcel shelf. This can either hide what’s in the luggage compartment or be dropped to a lowered position. In this mode it’s capable of supporting up to 70kg and can combine with folded rear seats to provide a perfectly flat load area.

Just because the Doblo is practical, comfortable and versatile doesn’t mean owners have to sacrifice ride or comfort.
There is a choice of three high-tech engines, all of which produce more power and torque than their predecessors while drinking less fuel and emitting less carbon dioxide. The 1.6 16v and 2.0-litre turbodiesels employ Fiat’s ground-breaking MultiJet technology to combine best-in-class fuel consumption and exhaust emissions with lively yet smooth responses. They also feature a new six-speed manual gearbox while the 1.6 will also become available with an automatic.
As with all Fiats, safety is engineered into the Doblo from the ground up. It sits on MacPherson independent suspension at the front, bi-link with anti-roll bar at the rear. This innovative solution makes for predictable road holding and combines with new hydraulic power steering to maximise grip and responsiveness.
The powerful braking system uses self-ventilating discs at the front, drums at the rear and is supplemented by state-of-the-art electronics to offer stopping power that’s unparalleled in its class. On top of this, every car is fitted with ABS anti-lock brakes that work in conjunction with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD). This enables every driver to extract the absolute maximum from their car’s braking system when it really matters.
The Fiat Doblo is available with a wide variety of technology, like air-conditioning, remote central locking and a height adjustable driver’s seat. Meanwhile the luxurious top-spec models features equipment to put far pricier models to shame like electric rear windows, electric heated door mirrors, front fog lights, a leather steering wheel and gear knob and 16-inch alloy wheels.
So that drivers can focus on driving rather than fumbling with maps, making phone calls or entertaining the kids, the Doblo can be ordered with Fiat’s impressive Blue&Me hands free system or Blue&Me TomTom. The award-winning Blue&Me uses Bluetooth connectivity to let the driver make and manage phone calls or listen to an MP3 player using voice activation or steering wheel controls.
Blue&Me TomTom combines this powerful tool with a 4.3-inch colour screen. Housed in a portable unit, this mounts on the dash to combine a cost-effective alternative to the best of after-market satellite navigation technology with none of the aggravation, at less than you’d expect to pay for a manufacturer’s original equipment. It offers the latest in sat nav technology such as touch screen controls, differing voice choices and full European coverage.
As well as showing you where to go, it talks to the Doblo’s in-car computer to provide information about your driving. But this is much more than a simple trip computer. It uses Fiat’s widely acclaimed eco:Drive programme.
Designed in conjunction with software giant Microsoft, eco:Drive gathers information on vehicle efficiency and driving style. This data can be transmitted through the USB port of the Blue&Me infotainment system to a standard USB key. Read that on a computer and a website will analyse how efficient the driver is in terms of fuel consumption and emissions, provide a score out of 100 on an eco:Index, and offer tutorials to help improve that score and achieve more eco-friendly driving.
