Fiat has announced details of a new, top-of-the-range version of its Fullback pick-up.
Called the Fullback Cross, Fiat said the new model has been built to meet customer demand for vehicles that are rugged and versatile but offer car-like comfort levels.
Powering the Cross is the firm’s 180hp 2.4-litre diesel unit which emits 180g/km of CO2 and returns 47.7mpg.
It went on-sale earlier this month, priced from £26,495 excluding VAT, putting it within the same price bracket as upmarket versions of the Nissan Navara. That price is roughly the same as what the entry-level derivative of the hotly-anticipated Mercedes-Benz X-Class is due to be priced when it arrives in November.
The Cross features a number of style details the brand claims adds dynamism and strength, such as the textured black sport bar, a front grille with black ingots, a satin silver skid plate, rear view mirrors, handles, wheel arches and 17-inch wheels with a matt black finish and side-steps which are also finished in black.
Standard kit, meanwhile, includes rear differential lock, Bi-Xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, rear parking sensors and leather seats.
The Fullback Cross is offered in a double-cab configuration with a payload of 1.1-tonnes and a towing limit of 3,100kg.
It will be sold at both Fiat passenger car and Fiat Professional dealerships.
