The new Fiat Doblò has been unveiled, with a revised range for the UK market.
The fourth generation of the Fiat Doblò, which has achieved 300,000 sales since it was first launched in 2000, features a restyled front end for 2015 with a sculpted bonnet; new front wings; distinctive new headlamps and a bold new grille.
At the back there are new light clusters, with a sleeker shape and a new body-coloured moulding across the tailgate. A new dark grey exterior colour and new wheel cover/alloy wheel designs round out the exterior revisions.
The 2015 Fiat Doblò is available in three engine/transmission choices, three trim levels, two roof heights and a choice of five- or seven-seat versions. Twin sliding rear doors are standard and there are a choice of tailgates and the option of a fold-flat front passenger seat.
Five seat models have a 790 litre boot (up to the parcel shelf) which can be increased to 3,200 litres when all the passenger seats are folded down, and the parcel shelf can be positioned at different levels and can carry loads of up to 70kg.
Other improvements to the 2015 Doblò include lighter and more precise gear changes, a more responsive throttle pedal, new instrumentation and better noise insulation.
The UK range has been completely revised for 2015, offering better value on key models and aligning it more closely to customer expectations in the segment.
A new entry-level Pop trim joins the range for 2015, equipped with start&stop, remote central locking, electric front windows and a 60/40 split rear seat as standard. In terms of safety, new Doblò is equipped with electronic stability control; ASR (anti slip regulation), hydraulic brake assist, hill holder; ABS with EBD (electronic brake-force distribution); front airbags (side bags are optional) and tyre pressure monitoring system.
Available with a 95hp, 1.4-litre petrol engine, the new Doblò Pop starts at £13,480 OTR, reducing the entry-level price of the range by £1,000 compared to the current range.
The MyLife trim level is replaced by the new Easy version and adds body-coloured bumpers front and rear, front fog lights, body-coloured electric door mirrors, steering wheel audio remote controls and a height adjustable driver’s seat compared to the Pop specification.
Prices for the Easy start at £14,650 OTR for the 95hp 1.4-litre petrol engine, with the 1.6-litre MultiJet 2 105hp priced from £15,900 OTR.
A new Easy Air special edition adds manual air conditioning to the Easy model for only £345 more (normally a £655 option) and the Easy 1.6-litre MultiJet 2 90hp Dualogic (equipped with FIAT’s automated-manual transmission) is priced at £16,700 OTR.
The new top-of-the-range Lounge trim replaces the Eleganza version and, compared to the Easy model, comes equipped with air conditioning; 16-inch alloy wheels; rear parking sensors; an audio system upgrade including Bluetooth and USB/aux-in connectivity; rear electric windows; power folding door mirrors; a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear knob; dark tinted windows and cruise control all as standard.
