ENGINES AND PERFORMANCE FOR THE FIAT QUBO
The entry-level model for the Fiat Qubo is powered by a 1.4 litre petrol unit producing 77bhp and it is a good performer around town. Other models have the choice of a 1.3 litre MultiJet turbodiesel unit producing 80bhp or 95bhp. All of the engines are mated to a manual box or, for the diesel's, the firm’s automatic transmission.

Safety equipment includes electronic stability control, hill holding assist, air bags and ABS.

For instance, there's a large tailgate which enables easy access to the boot and 16 different seating configurations along with sliding side doors which makes it sound choice for those tight parking spaces.

And, despite its origins as a van, the Qubo has a supple ride and agility around town; it's also comfortable over long distances which the design making it a practical choice for everyday use.
