Introduction

Fiat is carving out quite a reputation for itself for building vans that are compact on the outside and huge inside. The Doblo is just such an example and it offers more load space than a Citroen Berlingo or the original Ford Transit Connect yet is the same size as these rivals when it comes to fitting in to small parking spaces.

Fiat adds to the Doblo’s excellent credentials with a range of fine MultiJet turbodiesel engines. They offer strong performance and excellent economy and emissions, making them good to drive and cheap to run. The diesel engines fitted to the 2015 model benefit from EcoJet technology to improve economy further, with the most frugal examples managing an official 68.9mpg.

The fit and finish of the Doblo is another appealing factor. It borrows heavily from Fiat’s passenger cars for its cab’s switches and layout, helping to make it comfortable for all-day, everyday use. Improvements from 2015 onwards address issues with cabin noise, making the Doblo Cargo impressively refined on the move. 

The final accolade for the Doblo is its versatility when it comes to ordering different shapes and sizes. It can be had in standard and long wheelbase Maxi Van versions, a combi, high roof and the WorkUp pick-up model. There is also a chassis cab option that works as a base for conversions and a passenger version. 

From early 2015 the Doblo gets a stylish new front end design with sleek headlights and a redesigned grillle. Aside from the new look, revised models get better soundproofing in the cabin, improving refinement considerably - plus there are optional EcoJet packs for the 1.3-litre and 1.6-litre diesel engines to lower emissions and improve fuel economy.
