Fiat Professional is introducing its new Doblò XL, and expanded version of its award-winning Doblò Cargo van range. Expected to come after the unveiling of the Doblò Work Up in 2011, the Doblò XL is expected to increase and reinforce the appeal of the Doblò Cargo range. Thanks to Doblò XL’s long wheelbase and high roof combo, it can load up to 5.0 cubic meters and up to 1,000 kg of cargo, giving customers a cargo space that has been unavailable in the segment. The Doblò XL features a high roof that integrates seamlessly into its body, giving the van an aerodynamic and stylish look. Customers could load their cargo into the Doblò XL through its rear doors to fully utilise the maximum load volume.
The Doblò XL Cargo version is available in three Euro 5 turbodiesel engine choices: 1.6 MultiJet 105 hp, 1.6 MultiJet 90hp MTA and 2.0 MultiJet 135hp. The Combi version, however, is available with the 2.0 MultiJet 135hp only. The new Doblò XL, which is categorised between the Purpose Built Van and Small Panel Van segments, will likely entice buyers from the latter as it could provide the same load capacity and payload at a lower price. The new Doblò XL’s basic features include high load volume, easy loading, low fuel consumption, reduced operating costs, safety and comfort – all of which are expected to attract a variety of buyers like utilities, service vehicles, converters and wheelchair-accessible transport. The Doblò XL is fitted with Fiat Professional’s Doblò Cargo Bi-Link suspension for an enjoyable ride and powered by Euro 5-compliant engines for cleaner and less-costly operation.
The new Doblò XL will be available in Cargo N1, Combi N1 and M1 variants. Just like the current Doblò Cargo and Combi range, the Doblò XL will be available in two trim levels. The Combi M1 versions will feature side airbags and ESP as standard equipment. The options include Blue&Me with steering wheel controls, Blue&Me TomTom navigator and eco:Drive Professional software. Interested buyers could now order the new Doblò XL, at a starting price of £15,765.00 (basic) for the Doblò XL Cargo Base 1.6 MultiJet 16v Diesel 105, to £19,045.00 (basic) for the Doblò XL Combi SX M12.0 MultiJet 16v Diesel.
