Fiat to target lifestyle market with new Fullback Cross pick-up
Fiat is to launch a lifestyle-orientated version of its new Fullback pick-up.
Available solely as a double cab, the Fullback Cross will arrive this summer – a year after the launch of the L200 and Navara-rivalling Fullback – with a range of interior and exterior styling upgrades, including a new grille with matt black ingots, a satin silver skid plate, black detailing and revised larger side steps.
The Fullback Cross also brings an exclusive textured black sport bar and a new all-black cargo space, with the Fiat logo in relief.
Just one engine is offered – the 180hp version of the 2.4-litre diesel engine – with a choice of six-speed manual or five-speed automatic with sequential mode and dashboard commands. It also features 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 kit includes bi-Xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, 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 plus a rear parking camera and satellite navigation.
Safety equipment as standard includes ABS with EBD, trailer stability assist, lane departure warning, seven airbags and cruise control.
The Fiat Fullback Cross will go on sale in the summer through both the Fiat Professional and Fiat passenger cars dealer networks, with prices to be announced closer to the launch.
