Fiat has released the first pictures of Qubo, which will make its world debut at the Paris Motor Show in October offering a people mover capable of using as little as 3.8 l/100 km and targeting the market sector that is seen as the next big thing in Europe.

Built on the Fiat same platform as the Fiat Punto already on sale in New Zealand, the Qubo offers 16 different combinations of seats and load space area, including a fold down front seat that allows objects as long as 2.5 metres to be loaded inside, quite an achievement for a vehicle that is only 3.9 metres long! And, despite its diminutive exterior size, it has a load space that can expand up to 2.5 cubic metres or offer spacious comfort for five occupants and still have a 330 litre boot under its luggage cover.

The Qubo arrives in market sector that can be said have been first identified by Fiat with its Idea model, a people mover based on a small hatch back, to produce a car that is economical and easy to drive as the car on which it is based, but with the interior space of larger conventional cars. With taxes based on carbon dioxide emissions sweeping across Europe, Qubo’s ability to offer a C02 figure of just 119 g/km enables it to be in the low tax, as well as low emissions bracket without being a small, cramped car inside.

Making these emissions and economy figures possible is the same 1.3 litre turbo diesel engine that has made the Fiat 500 JTD one of the most economical cars available in New Zealand, and it is matched to the Dualogic gearbox that has economy and performance of a manual gearbox and ease of use of an automatic.
