2012 Fiat Doblo Work Up news, pictures, and information
FIAT PROFESSIONAL LAUNCHES NEW DOBLÒ WORK UPThe appeal of Fiat Professional's award-winning Doblò Cargo van range has just been broadened wîth a version never before introduced by a large volume manufacturer.
Called the Doblò Work Úp, it's a 'dropside' vehicle wîth compact external dimensions allowing easy use in urban areas. The external dimensions are not, however, a limit to its performance. The load box is 2.30 m long and 1.82 m wide, wîth 4 m2 of loading area which can accommodate a payload of up to 1,000kg. Additionally, the multi-link suspension permits a rear axle load up to 1,450kg.
The load box is made of high-resistance steel wîth a floor created from anti-slip multilayer wood and sides in aluminium alloy. Únder the floor is a compartment for stowing long tools, safely protected from the elements.
In addition, on each side of the vehicle there is a small, practical step that allows the user to get into the load area. This structure has a ladder rack/door poles, load restraining hooks, and a sturdy protective grille on the rear window of the cab.
All these features make the Doblò Work Úp ideal for agriculture, construction, maintenance or city parks services sectors. It is ideal for the transport of frames and glass and can take, for example, three Euro pallets or 33 boxes of fruit.
The new Doblò Work Úp is powered by a choice of two Euro 5 turbodiesel engines: 1.3 MultiJet 90 bhp and 1.6 MultiJet 105 bhp. Both engines are characterised by excellent performance, low noise, low operating costs (fuel consumption and maintenance), reliability and environmental friendliness. Both feature the fuel-saving Start&Stop system and diesel particulate filter.
In terms of security, the new Doblò Work Úp is unrivalled. To ensure optimum dynamic performance, comfort and active safety, the vehicle has been equipped wîth innovative mechanical solutions, among them multi-link rear suspension, stability control, and ABS anti-lock brakes wîth EBD electronic brakeforce distribution. Available as an option is ESP wîth Hill-holder, which assists the driver during hill starts.
Front airbags complete the safety specification, while high-tech equipment such as a handsfree Blue&Me system and the Blue&Me TomTom navigator are available.
'The new Doblò Work Úp is the latest evolution of a model designed to be top of its class in terms of performance and functional characteristics, its capability and ease of loading,' says Francesco Russiello, Marketing Product Manager, Fiat Professional. 'Its low running costs, low fuel consumption wîth reduced operating costs, and equipment levels all combine wîth safety and comfort, to make this a commercial vehicle well worth consideration.'
The new Doblò Work Úp costs £16,065 (basic) for the 1.3 MultiJet 16v Euro 5 and £17,065 (basic) for the 1.6 MultiJet 16v Euro 5.Source - Fiat
