Fiat Doblo prices announced

After being on the market for nine years, the Fiat Doblo, the MPV version of the panel van of the same name, has been given its biggest upgrade yet.

Fiat claims the new Doblo has been given all-new chassis, bodywork, suspension and engines in the latest refresh of the range. In fact, Fiat suggests only three per cent of components have been carried over from the outgoing model.

As expected with an MPV based on a panel van, the Doblo is extremely spacious inside the box-like rear. The five-seat Doblo can be extended to seat seven with an optional Family Pack.

The Doblo can be fully customised, with a choice of Active, Dynamic and Elengaza trim levels and a range of option packs offering equipment such as cruise control, rear parking sensors and interior styling.

The new engine range includes three Euro 5-specification engines. The entry-level unit, a 1.4-litre 16V 95bhp petrol, is joined by 1.6 and 2.0-litre turbo diesels producing 105 and 135bhp respectively.

Designed for family life, the Doblo made its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2010.
