Fiat revealed details today on the new Fiorino -based Qubo MPV. Although Fiat does not currently sell to the U.S., it is rumored the company will possibly be making a comeback. So it is good to know what Fiat will offer in a fuel-efficient multi-purpose vehicle.
Fiat is known for using versatile designs for the inside of its MPVs. The Qubo’s larger brother, the Multipla , seats six by having three full seats in the front and rear. Fiat claims the Qubo is as resourceful by offering sixteen different interior variations.
Power for the five-seater comes from a choice of gasor diesel engines like the 1.3-liter 75 bhp Multijet or 1.4-liter 73 bhp petrol engine and can be hooked up to a 5-speed manual or a robotized 6-speed automatic transmission.
Sales have already begun in France and will have spread to the rest of Europe by the beginning of next year. Price of the Euro-only car starts at about €13,000.
Although not as exciting as some other Italian offerings, here is some footage of the Qubo taking to some beautiful roads in the Italian countryside.
