FIAT Professional has unveiled its 2015 FIAT Doblò Cargo at the 2014 Hanover International Motor Show, which is considered as the most significant commercial and industrial vehicle show in Europe. The fourth-generation Doblò boasts of a fresh exterior design as well as engine upgrades for key models. The engines also feature an "EcoJet" version designed for lower fuel consumption and lesser running costs.
The FIAT Doblò still features bi-link suspension that ensures comfortable travel as well as a segment-leading load and volume capacities. The most visible changes on the 2015 FIAT Doblò Cargo can be seen at the front, which now features a new design that is in line with the new, muscular design language first unveiled on the new FIAT Ducato.
It features a sculpted bonnet and new headlamps, as well as sleek new front bumper, lower air intakes and fog light shrouds. At the rear of the new Doblò are new rear light clusters that features a sleeker shape and more sophisticated graphics. The Doblò will be the first vehicle to have at “FIAT Professional” logo on its tailgate, which can be soon seen all future FIAT Professional commercial vehicles.
Moving to the interior, buyers of left-hand drive models could avail of optional third, central front seat. Buyers of right-hand drive versions still has two-seat interior configuration that provides ample storage space as well as high comfort and specification levels. With its improved appearance, value-for-money and low running costs – the 2015 Doblo offers a smart proposition for commercial customers.
Engines that power the Doblo were also upgraded the responsiveness of the key engines for the Doblò, like the 1.3-liter and 1.6-liter turbo-diesel units, thereby giving way to higher torque at low revs.
The responsiveness of the 1.3-liter MultiJet II engine was also hiked 40 percent. The vehicle’s 90hp 1.3 MultiJet II and 105hp 1.6 MultiJet II engines now have “EcoJet,” which further make them more fuel efficient (64 mpg) and emit less pollutants (115 g/km carbon dioxide) – thanks to features like Start&Stop, low rolling-resistance tires and low-viscosity oil.
These are complemented by an ‘intelligent’ alternator, a variable-displacement oil pump and a new aerodynamic pack. [source: Fiat Professional]
