2016 Fiat Qubo MPV now available to order
Fiat has opened order books for its 2016 Qubo MPV, which brings new trim levels and a Trekking version with all-weather traction.
Priced from £11,695 OTR, the refreshed model gains new front and rear end designs, including new head lights, grille and bumper, plus extra choices for exterior colours and alloy designs.
Interior updates include a new steering wheel design, black mirror-finish detailing on the steering wheel spokes and centre console surround plus new instruments and seat upholstery.
The Qubo retains its supermini dimensions of 3.96m long and 1.7m wide but brings space for five adults and a 250-litre boot, rising to 650 litres or up to 2,500 litres with the rear seats removed. It also offers an optional folding function for the front passenger seat, enabling it to accommodate long objects of up to 2.5m in length.
Three trim levels are offered: Pop, Lounge and Trekking. Standard equipment on the entry-level Pop model – which is available solely with a 76bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine – includes remote central locking, electric front windows with one-touch lowering, electrically adjusted and adjustable door mirrors, body coloured bumpers and mirror covers, height-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support plus a Hill Holder system and front and side airbags.
The Lounge version adds air conditioning, front fog lights, the colour five-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, steering wheel remote controls, steering wheel and gear shifter trimmed in leather and 16-inch alloy wheels, and is available with the 76bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine and the 79bhp 1.3-litre MultiJet II turbo diesel, which offers the option of Fiat’s Dualogic automatic transmission.
Trekking version offers additional all-weather traction without the complexity and costs of a full 4X4 system Trekking versions also get new skid plates panels in the front and rear bumpers, as well as special side mouldings, both with silver inserts, and special Trekking alloy wheels with mud-and-snow tyres.
The Qubo Trekking brings on raised suspension and Traction+ electronic front differential, and builds on the Lounge specification by adding special bumpers, side mouldings and alloy wheels as well as dark tinted windows, roof bars, rear parking sensors, cruise control and the 94bhp 1.3-litre MultiJet II turbo diesel as standard.
