Fiat Doblo Review
The Fiat Doblo at a glance
Fiat has been building well-designed and capable vans for some time now and there is a lot to be said about the Italian brand’s current range. In recent years, the van market has exploded as more and more people are choosing to purchase a vehicle that is capable of multiple uses. Fiat has really dialled into this market and built a range of vans that can be used in a variety of settings, but also a range that really impresses when it comes to performance. The Doblo is one such van and it’s obvious to everyone who drives it why it is one of the most popular models in the Fiat range.
The Doblo really is the perfect tradesperson’s van and really there are few in the van sphere that would even attempt to argue with that statement. When it comes to jobs such as carpentry and plumbing, almost no van on the market comes close to matching Fiat’s performance and convenience. So, why is this? Well, first of all, it comes down to the Doblo’s size. For a van, it is on the small side which comes across as a negative at first glance. However, for roles like the two we have mentioned, this is, in fact, a positive. As you will find out, the van has some great features which make it the perfect tradespersons run around.
So, if you’d like to find out more about the Fiat Doblo, then keep reading this blog. We are going to discuss the van’s engine and specs, along with the interior and other notable factors. Certainly, if you want to know more about this popular and capable van, then keep reading!
Engines and Spec
The engine in the Doblo is, in fact, one of the most impressive areas and it certainly has enough options for you to choose from. You can purchase the Doblo in four different configurations. There are two 1.3-litre MultiJet variants which produce 80hp and 95hp respectively and there are two 1.6-litre MultiJet engines which have 105hp and 120hp, respectively. These engines may sound like they don’t have too much power, though they are extremely well-powered when you take the van’s size and weight into consideration. The low-weight statistics and small engines make these vans brilliant when it comes to fuel efficiency, which is, of course, a huge benefit.
Certainly, as a tradesperson, it is extremely important that you have a van that is both good with its fuel economy and has enough power to carry large loads of cargo. When it comes to the Fiat Doblo, this van is more than capable of meeting those requirements.
The interior of a van is one of the most important aspects of any trade and you will need to ensure that your new van has the features it needs to carry out the job effectively. Of course, there are a myriad of factors that come into play with van interiors and it can be a touch challenging to narrow them down at points. So, in this section, we’ll talk about the Doblo’s interior and assess whether it has the features it needs to impress in this field. So, keep on reading to find out more about the Doblo’s interior features.
First of all, let’s discuss the rear load section of the van where you will store your supplies and tools for the day’s work. This section of the van is very generous and will certainly give you enough space to house plenty of materials for your work. This is, of course, vital as your role will probably depend on access to materials such as metal and wood. There is also a side door option for the van, which will give you even easier access to the vehicle’s contents.
When it comes to the interior of the cab, this is also a great success. The seating position for the driver is perfect with great views of the road ahead and little in the way of blind spots. There are also many areas for storage and even some points of secure storage for you to keep your more valuable items.
