Despite the efforts made by several car manufacturers (read French and German carmakers) to give their vans an extra edge, the title of International Van of the Year 2011 went to the Fiat Doblo Cargo.
Presented at this year's 2010 IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover, Germany, the award went to the Italian vehicle after the jury found it to be a very comprehensive vehicle in terms of engines and offers a wide choice for its customers in terms of the number of platform and body types.
To win the title, the Fiat Doblo Cargo had to battle against the Renault Master and Opel Movano, as well as with the Mercedes-Benz Vito.
“The design of the winning van managed to impress in many ways but, most of all, thanks to the fact that Fiat managed to increase the number of platforms and body styles with which it is offered more than the competition,” said Pieter Wieman, the chairman of the jury.
“The Doblo range does not only include a Maxi version with a longer platform, but also versions of the platform which allow for different type of bodies to be fitted onto it.”
The Doblo is being offered with three Euro 5 engines, 1.4 gasoline (95 hp), 1.3 diesel Multijet (90 hp) and 1.6 diesel Multijet (105 hp), all equipped with a Start/Stop system. The average consumption figure for the model is 4.8l/100km (49 mpg) for the 1.3 diesel engine.
In addition to these engines, Fiat is getting ready for the release of the turbocharged CNG engine and a plug-in electric version.
