Fiat has announced that it will be taking the Fiat Doblo Trekking to the Geneva Motor Show. What is the Trekking? According to the company, it is a slightly more off-road-oriented version of the Doblo.
The trekking is “the ideal answer for anyone who drives mainly in the city but wants to be able to drive safely on roads with poor grip while enjoying outdoor activities. A merit of the exclusive “outdoor” features of the exterior, the adoption of “Traction+” as well as 10 mm raised chassis height,” says Fiat.
Traction+ is essentially a fancy traction control system that will make the vehicle steadier on gravel, but there will be no 4×4 system.
The exterior boasts side moldings with the “Trekking” logo, newly-designed 16″ alloy rims and new front and rear bumpers as well as a raised chassis and an under-engine guard that makes it possible to drive on uneven roads. The Trekking version also débuts a new body colour: Bronzo Magnetico.
Standard equipment includes the ESP system and the Hill Holder function, “Traction+” traction control, manual climate control system, fog lights, retractable rear-view mirrors, front armrest, rigid repositionable rear shelf, front and side airbags, rear seat monitoring mirror, privacy glass, dedicated 16″ alloy rims, lower engine protection, specific raised suspension height and All Season tyres.
