Used Fiat Doblo (2001 - 2010) Review

Gaining inspiration from other van-based cars like the Renault Kangoo and Citroen Berlingo, the Fiat Doblo is a spacious and versatile people carrier that (from 2004) is available with seven-seats. The squared-off shape does little for the looks, but it does mean there's loads of room for passengers in the back while folding all the seats down gives an enormous load-space.

Gaining inspiration from other van-based cars like the Renault Kangoo and Citroen Berlingo, the Fiat Doblo is a spacious and versatile people carrier that (from 2004) is available with seven-seats. The squared-off shape does little for the looks, but it does mean there's loads of room for passengers in the back while folding all the seats down gives an enormous load-space.

It comes well equipped considering the affordable price tag and although not especially refined, does ride well. The smaller engines are best avoided though - only the 1.9-litre MultiJet diesel offers acceptable performance. The model was facelifted in early 2006 with a more modern front and improved interior materials.

 Load space, rear seats can be removed making the space enormous.

 Versatility - 7 seats if needed but also a very generous sized boot when the rear seats are removed.
