Mildly disconcerting

According toAutoexpress this is the shape of Fiats Doblo replacement:

http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/videos/..._berlingo.html

Jointly developed with PSA and replacing the Berlingo also.


Hmmm. That's a bit small. No seven seater option with this one then.

Re: Mildly disconcerting

I don't think Fiat will get rid of the Doblo they have now, they make too much money from them. It seems as though this could be an extra to their Car range... but with Fiat you never know.

They certainly won't get rid of the Doblo van, as it's just the right size for people who have them... and I can't see them ridding of the Doblo passenger version as again people who have them need them

That's a Citroen / Pug...

Fiat'll never get rid of the Doblo not yet - the facelifted model is only just out and here you can't get one. We're on a list for a new one 6 to 8 weeks. A dealer I spoke to was waiting 12 weeks for one. Massive demand or else the factory is asleep!!

Re: Mildly disconcerting

the current Dobbie is virtually a completely different car to the Berlingo. They look similar at a glance but try parking next to one. They use different running gear too. It's a Fiat engine. The Citroen and Pug have the PSA engine.
If they are changing the Dobbie, it must be going the way of the Ulysse, a Pug with a Fiat badge on it.

Re: Mildly disconcerting

This is from worldcarfans.com - the FIAT Panorama - supposed to be the replacement to the Dobbie. It's appreciably smaller.

Re: Mildly disconcerting

Looks lower and more aerodynamic.
An aerodynamic Doblo...? What were they thinking of...?
