For The Doblo's sliding side doors and deep boot make it a good family car, and all versions have stability control.

Against Cheaper models don't have much kit. The rear tailgate is heavy and rear legroom isn't as generous as you might think.

Fiat Doblo MPV

The Doblo is reasonable to drive and practical up to a point, but there are a few compromises. A more mainstream MPV might be a better bet.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

You don't need to spend a long time looking at the Doblo to work out its origins. It's also sold – minus some windows and seats – as a van.

As you'd expect, the boxy body and sliding side doors make it a practical family car. That said, rear-seat legroom isn't as generous as you might think, and if you fold down the rear seats, the boot is flat but not very long. The rearmost two seats in seven-seat versions are for occasional use only.

Entry-level Active versions are a little sparse on kit – you get a CD player and electric front windows, but that’s about it. We’d recommend upgrading to Mylife trim, which adds air-conditioning. As for engines, we’d recommend the 1.6 diesel. It’s the cleanest and most frugal option, and still reasonably affordable to buy.

Have driven this car for six months. Nothing really special about it. I purchased this instead of a van as I sometimes have boxes etc to carry. In…
