The Fiat Doblò Cargo is a class leading act for light commercial vehicles of this size. Apart from the Vauxhall Combo which shares its body with the Doblo it is the only vehicle in this size sector that has a payload of one tonne. The Doblo is available in several configurations; short wheelbase with low or high roof, long wheelbase, a Combi model with a folding second row of seats and even a pickup model called the Workup. Payloads range from 750 to 1,000kg and cargo volume from 3.4 to 4.2m3, the Doblo can accommodate loads up to 2.17m in length.

You have a choice of three Fiat 16v Euro 5 Diesel Multijet engines; the frugal and spritely 1.3 litre 90hp, the good midrange 1.6 litre 105hp and the powerful 2.0 litre 135hp if you’re planning on using the full payload. Alternatively a 1.4 litre 90hp petrol engine is available and official combined fuel economy figures range from 39.2 to 58.9 mpg which were sure are achievable if you carry the payload of a feather and drive on very flat roads….maybe it was tested in Holland.
The interior for the basic Doblo Cargo is…..well basic with some improvements if you opt for the SX trim. The top of the range Tecnico model will give you reverse parking sensors, air-conditioning, Tom Tom sat-nav with powered mounting built into the dash top, Bluetooth connectivity and steering wheel-mounted audio controls.
Not the classiest of interiors out there but it is a functional and easy to drive van with an exceptional payload.
We can "totally" recommend the service received from Paul and Totally Vans.
In addition to the final price being extremely competitive, the entire process was absolutely painless. So much so, made me question why previous vehicle purchases were so laborious!Michael, Claire, Adam and Albi – Commercial Catering Contracts LTD.
I am always a little apprehensive when buying a new vehicle. What is the best model for my needs?, Which is the most appropriate funding solution? Am I getting a good deal? etc. Totally Vans gave me all of the facts and enabled me to make an informed and confident decision. Antony Cockerell - AR18
