New Doblo pix

A couple of shots of the new Doblo. Looks smart, and not based on the Berlingo: good!

Re: New Doblo pix

And you can see from this that it has coils at the back.

In fact the closer I look the more I suspect it is a very heavily revised version of the current model.

Re: New Doblo pix

Does look good, but that's a photoshopped current model I believe. I think the new one will be a bit more angular and have a blunter front. Either way, I don't think it will be a Berlingo spin-off, which is good. It needs it's own identity. I also think it loses it's sliding rear windows and gains a bit in the wheelbase.

We should see some more pictures leaked very soon.

Here's the movie version filmed in Turkey

The clearest views are when the convoy is in town; check out the smaller vid boxes...

Re: New Doblo pix

Only a few mods would sway me to buy a new model...

Gear lever coming directly out of dash rather than in that silly protrusion.
Longer wheelbase/larger boot area
Roof rails as standard
more overhead and underseat storage options (there's a heck of a lot of wasted space under those seats)
what would also be nice...
additional power points for rear passengers as well as in boot.
louder relay for indicators
Sort out the problem with the indicator stalk not cancelling/not staying on (works fine on other cars, so why not the doblo?)
Sort out the problem with the dodgy high beam/flash switch

Re: New Doblo pix

Well, the new car has coils at the back and a longer wheelbase; doing without the long leaf springs makes this possible. As to the rest, as far as I can see it looks like a serious revision of the present model, although with completely different bodywork.

I doubt the gear lever will move, and the indicator problem seems to be a universal Fiat gripe, and I assume the same mechanism will be carried over. Louder would be good, as would more storage, and a more secure spare wheel

And, after 65 thou my dipper switch is now very occasionally taking on a life of its own too.

So I agree. Not sure about the gear lever though, unless you mean the intrusion of the plastic surround, which I agree is a bit too wide.

But at least it looks to be no bigger than the current model. The Berlingo doesn't seem to be selling as well as it did, and I wonder if it isn't down to it being just that bit too long and wide, and now too expensive.

But what of the Qubo? That needs more storage, a lower price and better engines NOW as well. It's a good car let down by unfinished development.

Next year should get it all sorted - I hope - but unless it is very much better, and substantially more economical, I'll keep the old bus.

Re: New Doblo pix

Thanks. Great pix.

It reminds me of the Citroen C3 Picasso, but less fussy and therefore handsomer. Evolutionary. Lovely looking car. Drop down rear windows permitted by the longer wheelbase I guess. It really does appear to be based on the current model though.

I can't wait to discover the price and the full details.

I've just found this, which gives the interior. It IS a revision of the current car.

Re: New Doblo pix

Mmmm. As some of the posters say: brutal front!

This doesn't (I hope) do it justice. Obviously this is the basic version. It needs the blacking and the coloured bumpers to work.

Interestingly the brief says it has independent suspension. Looks like they've made it more comfortable then, and given it a little more space inside. I hope they've uprated the wipers, clutch and auxiliary belt drive too! Doubt it though

I'm off to see an old friend in Italy next week. I wonder if I'll see any? Not released till December though by the looks...

actually I've looked again, and the bumper is a completely different profile to the (better) one in the earlier photograph. This makes me think the blue one is of an older prototype. Good!

Actually all the pressings are sharper. This is definitely an old picture of an earlier prototype, or a photoshop...

Re: New Doblo pix

Yeah, they've pulled the windscreen back a tad too I think. Nice kitty...
There again; if I look, it's still the old screen.

This has been very inexpensive update. I hope it comes cheap, but either way I don't think I'll be changing. I need my money.
