Turin, 25 February 2015: Début of the new Doblò Trekking, which will be available in the coming months, positioned as the ideal answer for anyone who drives mainly in the city but wants to be able to drive safely on roads with poor grip while enjoying outdoor activities. A merit of the exclusive “outdoor” features of the exterior, the adoption of “Traction+” as well as 10 mm raised chassis height.
The special technology of the new model is “Traction+”, which is an innovative traction control system that increases vehicle drive on difficult terrains with poor grip while being a less expensive solution than a 4×4 drive, guaranteeing optimal release performance when starting.
The exterior displays special side moulding with the “Trekking” logo, new designed 16″ alloy rims and new front and rear bumpers as well as a raised chassis and an under-engine guard that makes it possible to drive on uneven roads. The Trekking version also débuts a new body colour: Bronzo Magnetico.
Distinguished by the brown colour specific to this version, the interiors reflect the solutions adopted for the Lounge version, but with some important exceptions: starting with the specific colour, a new dashboard variant with an eco-leather treatment, the new seats in fabric and eco-leather with double stitching and the new door panels also in eco-leather. Another innovation of the Trekking version is the extremely useful “capucine”, a convenient open compartment located high up, both in the central area as well as in the rear area of the vehicle, which can be reached both from the boot as well as from the rear seats. Offered upon request, it is added to the compartment located standard at the top on the windscreen.
The entire range is also enriched with numerous, practical storage compartments – which today are also larger – such as the glove compartment with slowed opening, which can hold a 10″ tablet or the door panel which has space for 3 bottles and a tablet at the same time. In short, there are truly many intelligent solutions that help optimise the use of the interior space, satisfying the needs of those who make the new Doblò the car to use with family and friends.
The wide range of standard equipment includes the ESP system and the Hill Holder function, “Traction+” traction control, manual climate control system, fog lights, retractable rear-view mirrors, front armrest, rigid repositionable rear shelf, front and side airbags, rear seat monitoring mirror, privacy glass, dedicated 16″ alloy rims, lower engine protection, specific raised suspension height and All Season tyres.
Upon customer request, the Doblò Trekking can be equipped with some useful devices such as rear parking sensors, Cruise Control, leather steering wheel with radio controls, leather gearbox cover, roof rails and 5″ Uconnect multimedia system, also with navigation.
In short, the Trekking version is the perfect choice for an active family space, a true “catalyst of life” which makes any situation possible and simple to experience: an active, lively, flexible space that can be transformed as needed.
The new Doblò is now in its fourth generation with a completely new exterior and interior design that is able to express dynamism and personality with its more distinctive forms and lines. Also the technological equipment has been enriched with new innovative contents that are easy to use and that make driving in the new Doblò a pleasure for anyone. The most interesting contents include the Uconnect multimedia system with a 5″ colour touchscreen that, upon request, can include integrated navigation and digital audio broadcasting (DAB).
An environment that is enjoyable for those who are travelling, who love to be with friends or for those who select it as a partner for their free time. Whatever your passion or use for the vehicle is, the interior space of the new Doblò is very modular – which has always been a strong point of this model – offering up to 7 seats, a large boot that is at the top of its segment (from 790 litres in standard configuration and 3,200 litres with the rear seats folded down), numerous compartments and the useful, always standard, split rear seat (60/40).
Plus, the new Doblò guarantees the best handling in its category – also thanks to the Bi-link suspensions, the only in its segment – and a high level of well-being onboard due to the very bright, airy compartment with excellent climatic and acoustic comfort.
