Starting from the back, this section clearly offers a sizeable amount of space and with it the implication being that it has a large loading volume. Its swing tailgate remains to be contemporary and unique and this time comes with a large window and a smooth style. The brand’s logo is placed in the middle giving an appearance similar to a small jewel stone. The tailgate is divided into two portions through a shiny black fascia. The upper part is made of glass while the lower is mainly metal. For the lights, they have a vertical arrangement and it has a transparent crystal clear portion that helps underscore its brightness. The bumpers cover the rear portion and merge with the rear wheel arches both on the upper part of the tailgate and the side, all without protruding. When viewed from the side, one can see the lines that cover the bottom part effortlessly starting from the front and going all the way to the rear wheel arch. This design gives the Fiat Doblò that dynamic and strong look.
Features that highlight the side include the compact and functional wing mirrors and the black door pillar. There is also the flushed sliding guide of the side door which has been integrated with the body, a standard practice in MPVs. Its use of large windows for the side helps with the brightness as well as the feeling of space for the interior. To make sure that both ingress and egress are easy, there are the big side doors which can slide.
