The interior of the Fiat Pulse has been revealed, displaying a number of advanced and trendy features. You all might remember the unnamed crossover that was revealed by the Brazilian arm of Italian manufacturer in May this year. Fiat has now closed-in on the Pulse moniker thanks to input from thousands of its fans.
Key features detailed in this cabin include a new multifunctional leather-wrapped sport steering wheel with a somewhat flat base and chrome details, a seven-inch digital cluster, push-start ignition, digital controls for the automatic air conditioning and a floating multimedia 10,1-inch touchscreen infotainment system mounted to the centre of the dash but angled towards the driver.
“In an unprecedented way in the Fiat range, the internal finishes of the Pulse that were developed guarantee a modern and comfortable environment for the occupants. We brought in new technologies that help differentiate surfaces, such as laser textures and exclusive fabrics, as well as special paintings and finishes,” said Isabella Vianna, manager of Colors and Materials of Mopar’s Graphic and Virtual Reality at the Design Center South America.
The Fiat Pulse will compete in the subcompact crossover segment where it’ll battle it out against the likes of the Volkswagen T-Cross and Ford EcoSport. Key details regarding the Fiat Pulse still need to be revealed but it’s understood that it will share most of its components with the Fiat Argo.
With that in mind, it’s possible that the Fiat Pulse will adopt the firm’s naturally aspirated 1,3-litre Firefly petrol engine good for 74 kW or a new 1,0-litre turbopetrol mill that develops in the region of 97 kW. The latter will also be offered with a CVT.
