In the UK, the 2020MY Doblo is offered in four trim levels – Standard, SX, Tecnico and Sportivo. The Standard specification comes with the new Eco pack which adds Stop&Start, a smart alternator and an electronically-controlled fuel pump. The Eco pack’s purpose is to save energy and ensure higher combustion efficiency.

The SX grade gets a near-side sliding door, body-colored door mirrors, and driver height-adjustable seat, while the Tecnico trim brings air conditioning, cruise control, satellite navigation, and reversing sensors, while the top-of-the-line Sportivo is available exclusively in black metallic with 16-inch alloys and folding electric door mirrors with heating function.

As before, customers have a choice of several different versions, including Cargo, Maxi Cargo, Cargo XL, Passenger, Maxi Passenger, XL Passenger, Crew Van, Work up and Maxi Platform. Fiat says it offers a best-in-class load area of up to 5.4 cubic meters (190.7 cu ft) as well as a class-leading payload of up to 1 ton (2,240 lbs).
