2016 Fiat Qubo (facelift) revealed
I’m the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!
Mid-life facelift brings new style, interiors and more equipment.
The third-gen Fiat Qubo, the passenger version of the third-gen Fiat Fiorino, was introduced back in 2008. To keep the third generation model on its feet for a few more years, Fiat has given the model a cosmetic update.
Up front, the facelifted Fiat Qubo features restyled bumper, new split-grille layout like the Fiat Toro, and reshaped fog lamp housing. The profile apparently is unchanged, save for new alloy wheels. Moving to the rear, Fiat has put on a slightly tweaked tailgate in the new Qubo. Two new exterior colour choices have been added: Bronze Magnetic Blue and Liberty.
The mid-life facelift also brings an updated interior. The dashboard appears to have gotten darker for a perfect gloss-black look. Other changes include updated instrument panel with new backlit graphics, new three-spoke steering wheel and a new 5.0-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation.
The 2016 Fiat Qubo (facelift) is available in three grades: Easy, Lounge and Trekking. Engine options remain unchanged and include 77 hp 1.4-litre Fire petrol, 70 hp 1.4-litre Natural Power petrol-CNG, 80 hp 1.3-litre Multijet diesel and 95 hp 1.3-litre Multijet diesel.
The prices of Qubo facelift start from €13,950 (INR 10,53,839.73) and go up to €20,200 (INR 15,25,990.14).
The Fiat Qubo has been spied testing in India several times in India but there’s plan to bring it to the market.
