Fiat Doblo Trekking Gets 10 mm of Extra Ground Clearance Over the Doblo Passenger Van

When it comes to the favorite panel van in Europe, it’s hard to think of a better offering than the Fiat Doblo. The follower of the Fiorino is at its second generation, which has already received a nip & tuck job at last year’s Hanover Motor Show.

If that face looks remarkably similar to the US-spec Ram ProMaster City, that’s ‘cos they share the same underpinnings. Only passenger vans are imported Stateside to circumvent the chicken tax, but the cargo van derivative is a post-import conversion.

All in all, the Fiat Doblo is a good all-rounder for small businesses and families. But up to this moment, we’ve been missing a tougher, more lifestyle-oriented variant of the Doblo. Not anymore though thanks to the Geneva Motor Show-bound 2015 Fiat Doblo Trekking.

Black plastic side moldings adorned with the Trekking logo are the elements that grabbed our attention first. Then there’s the minor but visually effective 10 mm raised suspension, but don’t think for a moment we’re dealing with a turbo diesel-powered passenger van that can hold its own in off-road conditions.

What Fiat calls Traction+ would lead you to believe otherwise, but oh no - this traction control system only manages drive for the front wheels on surfaces with poor grip. In addition to these, customers of the Doblo Trekking also get an under-engine guard, the Bronzo Magnetico exterior finish and a touchscreen infotainment system with sat nav, among other less important bits and bobs.
