Seven-seater sits on new platform; on sale early 2010

This is the all-new Fiat Doblo seven-seater, which will go on sale in the UK early next year.

The car is based on a new, larger platform and Fiat is claiming that it offers more passenger and luggage space than ever, plus reduced emissions thanks to new engines.

In Europe the Doblo will initially be offered with four engines: a 94bhp petrol, and three diesel Multijet engines with 89bhp, 104bhp and 133bhp.

A dual fuel petrol/methane engine which won't be on sale in the UK and an additional diesel engine linked to Dualogic manual unit with a paddleshift will be offered at a later date.

Start-stop will be offered as standard. The lowest powered diesel emits 129g/km of CO2.

No details of pricing have been released.

it encourages the driver to drive it rough and hard,

You have a point. I have been lucky enough to have owned, run as company cars or test driven a lot of interesting and quick cars and motorcycles. Nothing brings out the worse in me as thrashing small white vans. I love them.

but it is a brilliant vehicle to use and drive

I periodically pinch the work's Doblo van for mountain biking weekends and really enjoy driving it. The van handles well, has incredibly quick steering and the performance from the little 1.3 turbodiesel is surprisingly good. What impresses me in particular is the way it clears the outside lane of slower vehicles. I have driven Mercs, Saabs, BMs, Alfas, sportscars, coupes, hot hatches and executives and nothing gets the car in front out of the way quicker than a white Doblo Van driven 3mm off its back bumper in "clear the lane, I have work to do, money to make and I'll drive over the top of anyone who gets in my way mode."
