The interior layout, fit and finish

The term ‘fit for purpose’ springs to mind here. Squishy plastics and complex shapes are lovely, but they don’t stand up too well to building materials, farm animals and the kind of abuse that a typical work truck might see. Because of that, pickup interiors are nowhere near as plush as a regular SUV.

That’s all very well and good, but Fiat doesn’t offer the Fullback in full-on tradesman spec like an L200 4Life. The trouble is that the dashboard is near-identical to the L200, with just a few chintzy trim pieces and plusher seats. That means lots of unyielding plastic that might be hard-wearing but isn’t very nice to look at or touch.
