Great storage space, solid turbodiesels, good price Disadvantages:
Looks better after 2005 revisions, weak 1.2 petrolSummary:
Unlike previous Fiat vans - done in collaboration with Peugeot and Citroen - the new Fiat Dobḷ Cargo is all their own work with interesting featuresNew FIAT DOBLO Review:
The new Fiat Dobḷ Cargo is a solid-looking van particularly from the inside, which is quite stylish.
The gearstick is mounted at the base of the dashboard, just below the ventilation controls, and some models are available with contrasting colour combinations that brighten the interior.
The new Fiat Doblo Cargo also allows for good driving comfort due to height adjustment possibilities for both seat and steering wheel.
The 1.9 JTD diesel versions of the new Fiat Dobḷ Cargo are better drives, although the 1.3 Multijet diesel launched in 2004 could give it a run-for-its-money despite its smaller size.
The earliest 1.2-litre petrol models can be difficult propositions but the later introduced 1.4-litre engine is well worth the ride.
The new Fiat Dobḷ Cargo is a decent drive, with limited body roll in bends. The 1.9-litre versions offer excellent pulling power decent returns on a gallon.
You should ideally choose between the performance-biased 1.9-litre turbodiesel and the economy-conscious 1.3 Multijet, both of which are winners in their categories.
