New Doblò Cargo: a new dimension of transport

2010 Fiat Doblò Cargo

TURIN : December 17, 2009 - The new Doblò Cargo is top-in-class in terms of performance and functional features, load capacity and productivity, low fuel consumption and cost-effective running. It is ideal for professionals who spend many hours of the day riding in the vehicle: in city traffic and for frequent stopping-and-going for loading and unloading cargo but also for quick, long-distance transfers. The New Doblò Cargo was created for these people with roominess, cost-effective running, loading and driving ease, combined with safety and comfort, in mind.

The record-breaking features of the new Fiat Professional vehicle

Built on a new platform, the new Doblò Cargo has broken many records in its class: interior length up to 2.17 metres, width between wheel arches of 1.23 metres, volume from 3.4 to 4.2 cubic metres, payload from 750 to 1000 kilograms, combined fuel consumption of 4.8 litres/100 km and range of 1250 kilometres (with the 1.3 Multijet 90 HP engine). These record-breaking features point to major benefits in terms of work optimisation and running cost reduction for customers. The loading compartment is much roomier than the previous model: square, regular and fully exploitable, it is equipped with sliding side doors and generously-sized rear doors to make light work of loading and unloading.
Innovative design and capaciousness make Doblò Cargo the new point of reference for its category: a front end with a great personality, streamline sides with pronounced wheel arches and a rear end that puts the accent on the accessibility and capacity of the loading compartment. The appearance of a solid, robust vehicle is further confirmed by the inner and outer dimensions - larger than the previous model. This validates the Fiat Professional vehicle trend which started in 2006 with the introduction of the New Ducato and in 2007 with the New Scudo, both of which are larger and more capacious than their corresponding predecessors.

Reliable, environment-friendly engines

Fiat Doblò Cargo will be launched with a 1.4 petrol (95 HP) and three turbo diesel engines: second generation 1.3 Multijet - 90 HP, 1.6 Multijet - 105 HP and 2.0 Multijet - 135 HP. All Euro 5 compliant (Euro 4 variants are available for 1.4 petrol, 1.3 and 1.6 Multijet), the engines stand out for driving pleasure, excellent performance, quiet operation, and low running costs (fuel consumption and servicing), as well as being reliable and environment-friendly. More specifically, Euro 5 engines fit the new Start&Stop system and a particulate filter as standard features (diesel only). The engine range will later be expanded with the addition of Natural Power versions (dual petrol/methane fuel) and a new diesel version with robotised gearbox.


To ensure optimal dynamic behaviour, comfort and active safety in all road and load conditions, the Doblò is equipped with innovative mechanical solutions, including a Bi-link rear suspension layout with variable component calibrations depending on specific use of the vehicle. The Doblò Cargo implements state-of-the-art electronic stability control devices, such ABS with EBD electronic brake force distribution and, above all, ESP complemented by a Hill Holder system that assists the driver when starting on a slope, for consistent, predictable handling.
With crumple zones, front airbags and innovative front side bags for head and chest protection, the new Doblò Cargo is designed and built to reach the highest passive safety standards. Plenty of clever little solutions - like the roof shelf, a document holder on the dashboard and lots of handy oddment compartments - turn the cab into an office on wheels. Technical solutions and high-tech equipment improve comfort and help focus on driving: climate control (automatic version is available), Cruise Control, parking sensors, integrated Blue&Me hands-free system and the “Blue&Me TomTom” navigator.

The range

The range is organised around 7 different body types: short and long wheelbase van, high top van, short and long wheelbase 5-seater combi; particularly interesting is the brand-new short and long wheelbase drop-frame version, which can be easily and cheaply converted for specific trades (refrigerated vans, fixed and tilting flatbed trucks). Two outfits of the new commercial vehicle are available (standard and SX) for each of the two versions: Cargo and Combi. This means a total of approximately 400 possible solutions by selecting all the possible body, side door, rear door and engine options. Doblò Cargo has 11 paintwork colours (3 pastel and 8 metallised) with a long list of optional devices for various customisations.

The heir to a bestseller

The new Doblò Cargo is the heir to a successful model that was chosen by over 650,000 customers (total in Europe and Turkey) since it was introduced at the end of 2000. Part of its success due to the constantly renewed portfolio. The Doblò has always promptly responded to customer demands during its lifecycle, with the introduction of high top, long wheelbase and environment-friendly models (Natural Power and diesel engines with DPF). Today's introduction portfolio is very rich and complete, capable of satisfying the most diverse requests of professional customers.
