The New Fiat Fullback: 2018 Best Bakkie WINNER!

The New Fiat Fullback: 2018 Best Bakkie WINNER!

William Simpson, Fiat Cape Town – Yes, the Fiat Fullback has made it once again into the Best Bakkie list for 2018 and WON! The updated Fiat Fullback model has been crowned Best Bakkie 2018 by Bakkie & Car Magazine. It silently slipped onto the rankings before the arrival was announced to the public!

The Fullback may resemble a rival but has the advantage of the latest and innovative 133kW 430Nm 2.4 litre which the flagship Fullback now sports. Currently only available in 4x4 automatic for now, the New Fiat Fullback is both more affordable and sports better features than its kissing cousins.

What makes this Fullback an astonishing performer is the brand new next-generation aluminium block four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine with its combination of a fast-spooling turbocharger and low compression ratio of 15.5:1 for responsive torque at low engine speeds. Its all-aluminium cylinder block sports reinforced steel piston sleeves that weigh-in 30kg less than before.  A combined common-rail direct injection system adds to the smaller engine’s throttle responses for a focused driving experience.  

The shortened wheelbase, revised stabiliser bars, stiffer front springs and stiffer rubber body mountings on toughened ladder frame chassis makes for better road holding, ride excellence and less body lean. Thanks to the more direct Hydraulic Power Steering the handling is better and the tightening of the cornering radius improves off-road use.

New Fiat Fullback Features

The interior is stylish, spacious and soundproofed with reduced vibration and noise, supportive seats, optimised driving position and leather upholstery, matching dashboard styling, automatic dual zone air conditioning and a state of the art infotainment system. The new look Fiat Fullback comes standard with driver and passenger airbags, as well as a range of safety systems:

  • Load Sensing Valve
  • Electric Brake-force Distribution
  • Anti-lock Braking
  • Electronic Stability Programme with Hill Assist for improved uphill pull-offs
  • Bi-xenon headlights
  • Rear-view camera

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, you can look forward to many more extras found on the Fiat Fullback LX Sport model, such as:

  • Easy Select 4x4
  • Cruise control
  • Touring suspension
  • Chrome accents & body coloured bumper
  • Chrome bezel
  • Electric windows
  • 17” alloy wheels
  • Isofix child restraint system

Even off-road driving is easier with the Easy Select 4WD setup which, by turning the diff knob, sends maximum torque to each wheel via the 5-speed automatic gearbox.
