Fiat chose the Hanover Motor Show to introduce the Fullback Cross Concept by Garage Italia, which is an original concept vehicle created in partnership with Lapo Elkann’s creative hub.
On the outside, the show-vehicle features a distinctive Green/Bronze two-tone livery, highlighting the bronze mirror caps and the 17-inch matt black alloy wheels, combined with the original “Elmo Vintage” brown leather interior.
Fiat says Its features and equipment make it extremely easy to live with, without sacrifice: maximum agility anywhere thanks to the best-in-class turning circle diameter, parking simplified by the rear-view camera, and comfort guaranteed by the leather seats and smooth automatic transmission. What’s more, it can call on the most complete traction system in the category, to get its driver to any destination.
Just a touch of a button switches from two-wheel drive mode, ideal for fuel-saving, to all-wheel drive with a Torsen central differential for off-road use. In addition, Fullback Cross offers the option of low-range gears and, for the most extreme terrains, mechanical locking of the rear differential.
As it’s a once-off, it’s unlikely we’ll ever see it locally.
