2015 Fiat Doblo Gets a Smiley Facelift

Fiat presented the updated 2015 Doblo with a fresh face at the 65th edition of the Hanover International Motor Show that runs from September 25 to October 2.

The reimagined front end of the van (sold in North America as the Ram Promaster City) went from a “look at me, I’m sucking on a pacifier” to a devilish grin similar to the Guy Fawkes mask (which owes its modern day popularity to the graphic novel and film V for Vendetta). The new tail lamp graphics complete the exterior revisions.

On the inside, there’s a brand new dashboard (albeit with the same air-condition controls) and steering wheel, as well as fresh colors and upholstery, while Fiat added a new multi-functional front bench seat for three with a storage compartment underneath.

In Europe, the 2015 Doblo is offered with a multitude of engines, including tweaked 1.3-liter and 1.6-liter diesel units that produce more torque at lower speeds in the new model.

The diesel range comprises the 1.3 MultiJet II (75PS and 9PS) 200Nm, 1.6 MultiJet II (100PS and 105PS) 290Nm, 90PS 1.6 MultiJet II 200Nm with robotised gearbox and 135PS 2.0 MultiJet II 320 Nm.

There are three petrol engines to choose from, including the 95PS and 127Nm 1.4-liter, 120PS and 206Nm 1.4 TurboJet and the 120PS and 206Nm 1.4-liter TurboJet 206 Nm dual fuel (petrol/methane).

The facelifted Doblo also gains an optional Traction+ system that improves grip on slippery surfaces, and is quieter thanks to better soundproofing.

Fiat will launch the 2015 Doblo early next year with four bodies (Cargo, Combi, Trucks and Flatbeds), two height variants and two lengths.
