Fiat Doblo Cargo gains facelift and new engines

Fiat Professional has unveiled the facelifted Doblò Cargo at the 2014 Hanover International Motor Show.

The fourth-generation Fiat Doblò features a fresh exterior design,  improved engine performance for key models and a new "EcoJet" version engineered to lower fuel consumption and reduced running costs even further.

The front end is completely redesigned in line with the new design language first seen on the new Ducato. The sculpted bonnet and distinctive new headlamps combine with the bold new grille to add an air of sophistication and elegance to the 2015 design.

The Doblò will also be the first vehicle to bear the “Fiat Professional” logo on its tailgate, a signature which will appear on all Professional commercial vehicles in the future.

On the inside, a new option of a third, central front seat coincides with dashboard redesign for left hand drive models. However, right-hand drive versions will retain the current, two-seat interior which is highly regarded amongst UK customers.

The key engines in the Doblò range, the 1.3-litre and 1.6-litre turbo-diesel units, benefit from enhanced responsiveness allowing higher torque to be produced at low revs. As far as the 1.3-litre MultiJet II engine in concerned, this responsiveness has increased by approximately 40 percent compared to the model it replaces, resulting in both greater flexibility for more relaxed and efficient driving, as well as livelier performance when required.

The 90hp 1.3 MultiJet II and 105hp 1.6 MultiJet II engines are also available in new “EcoJet” versions which offer a considerable reduction in fuel consumption and emission levels thanks to the use of Start&Stop; low rolling-resistance tyres; low-viscosity oil; an ‘intelligent’ alternator; a variable-displacement oil pump and a new aerodynamic pack. All this makes it possible to achieve fuel economy figure of up to 64 MPG and CO2 emissions of 115 g/km.

The revised vehicle goes on sale in Spring 2015.
