Little brother of the Doblò is much cheaper

Frankfurt, 26 July 2016

The Fiat qubo is the little brother of the Doblò. Like this (and its more well-known competitors Renault Kangoo, Citroën Berlingo, and VW caddy) he is a high-roof station wagon. Identical brothers Citroën Nemo and Peugeot Bipper were now discontinued, but Fiat missed a facelift of the car now.

Changed Grill and Interior

The designers have the front bumper, grille and the tailgate redesigned the differences seen best in our images. There are also two new exterior colours and differently styled wheels. The instruments get a modified graphics. The two top equipment versions get black piano varnish elements. Also a five-inch touchscreen Infotainment system is now for these variations series.

So much trunk like a Sharan

Nothing changes in the interior space of the main strength of a high-roof station wagon. Five configuration and load up the trunk cover fit 330 litres in the luggage compartment. A tumble system allows you to "wrap up the seats" to the front and to expand it if necessary. By loading up under the roof, the volume increases then on up to 2500 litres. This is not as much as in the larger relatives à la Berlingo, but you can take as much as with a (three times as expensive) VW Sharan. And the outside length of almost four meters. The fold-down front passenger seat also allows to invite 2.50 meters long items.

Three engines as before

The engines, nothing changes: there is a 77 PS petrol engine suction and two 1.3-liter diesel with 80 and 95 HP. The 80-Horsepower diesel can also be ordered with automated manual transmission. Another alternative is the natural gas version natural with a 70 HP 1.4 liter engine power. The Middle trim level was renamed. So are the versions now called pop, lounge (previously my QUBO) and trekking. In the variant for the more adventurous is the latter according to Fiat. Optics details should make for the emotions front and rear tinted Windows and a silver Underride Protection dummy. The prices for the lifted QUBO start at 12,490. This is the actual blast, because thus the entry to 1,500 euros will be cheaper. The car now is found. (sl)
