Fiat claims the Fiat Qubo is much more than a transformed van, it is car and drives like a car, the Qubo is well-built and bigger than a Panda, but smaller than a Grande Punto.
The Fiat Qubo offers a 1.3-litre MultiJet diesel engine and is the one preferred. It's not faster than the 1.4-litre petrol which does 0-62mph times of more than 16 seconds, but the overall driving description is better with a bolder mid-range performance thanks to the torque. It's economical, averaging 63mpg compared to 40mpg in the petrol, whilst low emissions make it inexpensive for the yearly tax. The Trekking model is a more of a rough adaptation, but it hasn’t got a 4 wheel drive. It's obtainable solely with the MultiJet diesel and performance is unaffected with a 0-62mph time of 16.5 seconds whilst fuel economy is 64mpg. The standard gearbox is a 5 speed manual but the diesel is obtainable with an elective sequential automatic gearbox which is called a Dualogic, this performs parallel to the automatic. It is not as soft as a conventional car but does offer improved fuel consumption.
A 45 litre tank of diesel fuel will drive the Multijet 621 miles before emptying, its primary service is required at 18,000 miles and the diesel has a London congestion charge of 119g/km of CO2. This means the road tax will be £35 at the time of writing this.
The Qubo boasts twin sliding doors, detachable rear seats and a front passenger seat that collapses into the floor. Chic alloy wheels and neat roof bars revamp it, but this is not a car for the fashion conscious. The steering wheel adjusts brake and the gear stick and although the seating location is eminent you don’t feel like you’re suspended in the sky. The Qubo offers a cool 330 litre boot with all the seats up. The rear seats can be folded flat or even removed completely; you can collapse the front passenger seat to produce a huge 2,500 litres of boot space.
Positive Review: Huge practicality in a small package, cheap on fuel, sliding rear doors, funky image, big boot space. A silky drive means it's well-mannered even on bumps.
Cons: Looks very much like a van still or to some might be quirky, listless engines on all of their ranges, fidgets on long rough roads. Rear windows don't open fully, and it lacks some safety gear. The long tailgate might demonstrate to be annoying.
Conclusion of Review: A great MPV with massive space, some may be put off by its looks, but if they give this a miss they'll be missing out on its brilliance. The Qubo does zero poorly and goes beyond its potential in many areas.
