Fiat Professional has unveiled the refreshed Doblo at the 2014 Hanover International Motor Show.

The fourth generation of the commercial van features a fresh exterior design with new headlights combined with a new radiator grille to “add an air of sophistication and elegance”. The new front bumper, lower air intakes and fog lights adopt “a more car-like refinement while also hinting at the new Doblo’s solidity and robustness”.

On the inside, the left-hand-drive version will receive a redesigned dashboard and three seats, while the right-hand drive version will retain the current, two-seat interior “which is highly regarded amongst UK customers for its ease-of-use”.

The engine range includes a 1.3-liter and a 1.6-liter MultiJet II turbo-diesel units. The smaller produces 90 HP (66 kW), while the bigger has 105 HP (77 kW). The Italian manufacturer says both engines have increased responsiveness with up to 40 percent.

A new EcoJet modification for both diesels will be offered to provide “a considerable reduction in fuel consumption and emission levels”. This happens thanks to the use of a start-stop system, low rolling-resistance tires, low-viscosity oil, an intelligent alternator and a new aerodynamic pack. The EcoJet makes it possible to achieve fuel economy figures of up to 4.4 l/100km (64 MPG) and CO2 emissions of 115 g/km.
