A NEW pick-up truck from Fiat, the Fullback Cross, has made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

The newcomer to the Italian manufacturer's line-up has been designed to broaden the appeal of the Fiat Fullback with lifestyle users.

It features a range of interior and exterior styling upgrades, including a new grille with matt black ingots, a satin silver skid plate, black detailing and larger side steps.

Fiat says a textured black sport bar gives the Fullback Cross a sleeker silhouette and underlines its dynamic profile. The model's look is completed by an all-black cargo space, with the Fiat logo in relief.

Available as a double cab, the Fullback Cross comes with a 2.4-litre common rail turbodiesel engine and develops 180bhp and a maximum torque of 430Nm.

Two transmissions are available, a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic with a sequential mode and dashboard controls.

The Fullback 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, manages torque transmission to the wheels based on road conditions and speed.

The Fullback Cross also comes with a range of standard safety equipment including ABS, trailer stability assist system which aids stability during towing, 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 seven-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 and prices will be announced closer to the launch.
