Fiat: Doblˇ

At the Paris Motor Show 2000, Fiat Auto will be world premiering a new model that is due to go on sale from November. It is called the Fiat Dobl˛. A youthful, original name that oozes fun and likeability. Like the vehicle itself, which is unique of its kind. 

Whether you are seeking a companion for adventures or a workmate, you can do anything you want with a Fiat Dobl˛. Exactly what you would expect of an MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle). 


It is ideal if you want an informal, simple, mould-breaking vehicle that can adapt to any need. Perfect if you work and drive in town. But also ideal if you travel the world, alone or with friends, accompanied by sports equipment, luggage, your own habits and - above all - a will to be free and get away from it all.

The Fiat Dobl˛ is as easy to handle and comfortable as a car yet as roomy as an MPV. In fact, for a competitive price, it offers the same versatility as an MPV but has a more compact exterior: just 4.16 metres long and 1.71 metres wide.

The Fiat Dobl˛'s originality is evident in its rational but far from run-of-the-mill styling that spells out an ability to meet the needs of different applications and different customers. 

In a word, a vehicle designed for function: and in fact the new model's watchwords are practicality and flexibility. 

The Fiat Dobl˛ can seat five people in comfort while also offering plenty of luggage space: 750 litres to parcel rack level is an absolute record in the MPV category. 

The back seat can also be folded down to create 3000 litres of load space. This means the vehicle can carry bulky equipment for sport, leisure or work activities. As if this were not enough, you can also order convenient roof bars and a swivel-opening roof hatch that enables you to house longer items. 

The facia and passenger compartment also house a host of storage compartments (including a shelf beneath the cab roof) so everything you need is always within easy reach. 

All this roominess makes for excellent quality of life on board. Oceans of glass turn the Fiat Dobl˛ interior into an airy environment that conveys an immediately pleasing sensation of comfort. 

The new model's strong points include accessibility and interior user-friendliness aided - for example - by generously sized sliding side doors. The seats are also just the right height off the ground so you can get in and out with ease. Plenty of room is also available for passengers. 

The Fiat Dobl˛ is all set to create a new benchmark within its market segment and its future success will be partly due to certain particularly innovative features. These include an Info-Telematic Node with radio, GSM phone, satellite navigation system and Service call for emergency calls. The latter device gives the driver peace of mind in any emergency situation. 

The Fiat Dobl˛ also stands for safety: preventive, active and passive. Full control in all road conditions is assured by category-topping handling and roadholding. The body has passed all the toughest and most recent crash standards with flying colours but already complies with some of the future specifications.

Broad bumpers, side strips and headlamp inserts also safeguard the Fiat Dobl˛ against minor everyday knocks and bumps. 

On the passive safety front, the new model offers up to six airbags: two at the front, two at the side and two window bags. 

The new vehicle is thus a paragon of practicality, space, comfort and safety. The same attributes also make the Fiat Dobl˛ a formidable light commercial vehicle if required. The goods transport version (Fiat Dobl˛ Cargo) boasts all the handling and comfort of a car, low running costs and record-breaking load capacity for its segment. 

The vehicle offers:

  • 3.2 m3 volume, rising to 3.8 in the high roof version, due to be introduced later;  two payloads: 625 and 805 kg;

  • rear doors with two asymmetrical flaps; 

  • a 70 cm wide sliding side door (also a record in its category), available on both sides. 

The Fiat Dobl˛ and Fiat Dobl˛ Cargo offer an incredible array of variants to meet all needs: 26 body configurations (with 3, 4 or 5 doors), divided into two specification levels for the Dobl˛ (SX and ELX) and two for the Dobl˛ Cargo (basic and SX). 

The vehicles come with 4 engines: a 47.5 kW - 65 bhp Fire 1.2 8v petrol unit and a 46 kW - 63 bhp 1.9 D aspirated diesel. These are to be joined later by a 76 kW - 103 bhp 1.6 Torque 16v unit and a 74 kW - 100 bhp 1.9 JTD unit. 

Ten exterior colours are available, plus a wide range of options and accessories. 

This range of alternatives is rounded off versions converted by outside body shops. The new model is a perfect base for a wide variety of applications: vehicles with specially lined and equipped load compartments, insulated vehicles for carrying perishable goods, mobile workshops or police vehicles.
