The latest version of Fiat's Fullback pick-up – the Cross – is geared towards ‘lifestyle users’ and will be sold through the Fiat passenger cars dealer network.
The Fullback Cross features a range of interior and exterior styling upgrades, including a new grille with matt black ingots, a satin silver skid plate, extra black detailing and revised larger side steps. An 'exclusive' textured black sport bar gives the Fullback Cross a ‘sleeker silhouette’ and underlines its dynamic profile. The model’s individual look is completed by the new all-black cargo space.
Available as a double cab, the Fullback Cross is powered by a 2.4-litre turbodiesel engine, developing 180hp (133 kW) and a maximum torque of 430Nm. There are also two transmissions available: six-speed manual or five-speed automatic with sporty sequential mode and dashboard commands.
The pick-up is equipped with an electronic selector allowing drivers to engage the all-wheel drive system, with a choice of four modes. A central differential, supported by three electronically controlled clutch modes, manage torque transmission to the wheels in real time based on road conditions and speed.
Standard safety equipment includes ABS with EBD, TSA (Trailer Stability Assist – a system which aids stability during towing), LDW (Lane Departure Warning), seven airbags and cruise control. Bi-Xenon headlights, front fog lights and LED daytime running lights are also included as standard.
The interior features leather seats, steering wheel and gear knob, automatic dual zone climate control and heated front seats, with six-way electric adjustment on the driver's side. The infotainment equipment includes a 7-inch touchscreen with DAB CD/MP3 Radio, Bluetooth and USB port. A rear parking camera and satellite navigation complete the interior set-up.
The Fiat Fullback Cross will go on sale in the summer, with prices to be announced closer to launch.
