Fiat’s Fullback Cross is for ‘lifestyle’ customers

Three factors should help the new Fullback Cross appeal to people who are considering buying a pick-up as their daily driver.

1. It looks eye-catching without being too flashy

As well as a complete lack of chrome, the Cross version is distinguished by a satin silver skid plate, bi-xenon headlights, larger side steps and a ‘sport bar’ that’s mounted atop the cargo box.

Wisely, Fiat has resisted the temptation to apply any gaudy bodywork graphics.

2. The standard specification is more than adequate

Leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, seven airbags, cruise control and lane departure warning all appear on the list.

In addition, there’s a touchscreen-controlled infotainment system that boasts satellite navigation, a DAB radio, a CD player and Bluetooth connectivity. It also displays the output from a rear reversing camera.

The engine is a 2.4 litre turbocharged diesel unit which produces 177 bhp (133 kW / 180 PS) with 430 Nm (317 lb/ft) of torque. That output gets sent to a four-mode all-wheel drive system via either a six-speed manual gearbox or a five-speed automatic transmission.

3. Finding a dealer won’t be a problem

All other Fullback variants are retailed through Fiat Professional commercial vehicle outlets only. However, when sales begin in the summer, the Cross will be available from Fiat car showrooms too.
