The Fiat Qubo MPV – a rather rare, pocket-sized MPV from Fiat – gets a refresh for 2016 with revised interior and exterior. Costs from £11,695.
You would be forgiven for thinking that every Fiat has a ‘500’ badge attached to its name, but Fiat genuinely build cars that don’t have a 500 badge – like the Fiat Qubo.
The Fiat Qubo is a pocket-sized MPV based on Fiat’s Fiorini van, and it’s the nose from the Fiorino that arrives on the 2016 Qubo so you know it’s a facelift model, and the tailgate gets a flat black strip too. And we think that’s the extent of the exterior facelift, or at least for the regular Qubo models.
The Qubo Trekking versions also get new skidplates, Trekking alloys and mud and snow tyres as well as a Traction+ system to shuffle power between the wheels for better grip.
Interior changes for the Qubo sees Lounge and Trekking models get a 5″ Uconnect infotainment with Bluetooth and USB and Sat Nav as an option, Air Con, 16″ alloys and leather, with the Trekking also adding side mouldings, parking sensors and cruise. The entry-level Pop models come with remote locking, electric front windows and electric door mirrors.
There’s not a huge choice of engines (sadly no TwinAir for the Qubo, even if it would suit) with the 1.4 litre petrol with 765bhp for the Pop and Lounge models and the 1.3 MultiJet for the Lounge and Trekking.
The 2016 Fiat Qubo is now on sale from £11,6895 for the Qubo Pop 1.4, with Lounge Models costing £1,090 more and the Qubo Trekking costing from £15,695 with the 1.3 litre MultiJet.
