82. FIAT FULLBACK
WHAT does a car maker do if it wants to add a pick-up truck to its range overnight? Well, if you’re Fiat, Renault or Mercedes, you stick your badge to an existing model.
Although the latter two turned to the Nissan Navara (opposite) for their donor truck, Fiat has renosed the Mitsubishi L200 (Page 61). That’s no bad thing, as it’s one of the best trucks on sale, and the Fullback has the same engines and payload capacity. While the range is narrower, the addition of the Cross model gives it a boost. Price range: £27,103-£34,543 Our pick: 2.4D LX (£28,963) Engine: 2.4 litre 4cyl diesel, 180bhp Transmission: 6-spd manual, dual-range selectable 4WD Top speed: 111mph Economy: 39.8mpg CO2: 186g/km
