Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

If you compare starting prices, the Fiat Doblo Cargo costs a little less than the rival Ford Transit Connect and significantly less than the Volkswagen Caddy. If you buy on a PCP finance deal, however, as most drivers will, the price gap will narrow.

The engines are economical, with an official average of just over 50mpg for the 1.3 Multijet 2, whichever power option you choose. The 1.6 Multijet officially averages 46mpg, and we saw around that figure on a run, while around town it was down in the mid-30s. 

Overview

The Fiat Doblo Cargo has some strong engines and drives reasonably well, but rivals offer nicer interiors, come with more kit, and some are more practical. That there’s no load-through bulkhead option is a real missed step, too.

  • Great ride and handling balance
  • Strong diesel engines
  • Spacious cargo bay
  • Cramped driver’s leg room
  • No load-through bulkhead
  • Terrible infotainment system
