|Fiat Fullback 2.4 LX manual|
|Price:||£23,495 (ex VAT)|
The Fiat Fullback is the Italian company’s attempt to join the lucrative pick-up market.
Rather than spend millions developing an entirely new model, Fiat has used the Mitsubishi L200 and added badging and a touch of personalisation to set it apart.
There is one 2.4-litre diesel with either a 150hp or, as tested here, a 180hp output. The former comes with just a six-speed manual, while the latter also has a five-speed automatic gearbox. The engine is a strong unit with plenty of low-down urgency, but it is loud in the process – there isn’t as much noise insulation as you might like.
Fiat also throws in the same navigation infotainment system that you get in the L200 – one that is a bit fiddly to use and slow to respond, but that will guide you to your destination with a bit of practice.
