It was back in May that Fiat first revealed its new Pulse mid-size SUV aimed at the South American market. However, at the time Fiat only shared exterior images of its new SUV with the interiors kept under wraps. Now the carmaker has shared pictures of the interior of the SUV revealing a clean and uncluttered cabin.

- Patterned trim strip bisects the dashboard
Fiat Pulse: The interior
The Pulse cabin seems to go with the times with a clean looking dashboard bisected by strip of chrome and a patterned contrast finished panel flowing into the doors. A free-standing 10.1-inch touchscreen takes pride of place atop the centre console. A smaller 7.0-inch display sits within the instrument binnacle. On start-up the display spells out the SUV’s name with the words pulsing almost as if reading a heartbeat. The dials also change graphics if one hits the red Sport button on the steering
There are some physical switches located on the lower half of the centre console for some basic functions. These include turning on the air-con, internal and external air circulation, a dial each for the temperature and volume, hinting that the touchscreen will likely house a large number of functions.
Fiat has revealed few other details about the cabin.
Fiat Pulse: What’s to know
A mid-size SUV catering towards the South American market, Fiat revealed the Pulse as an unnamed SUV early in May 2021 with the official name being announced about a month later. Built on a modular platform, the SUV will be powered by a choice of petrol engines including a pair of turbo-petrol engines – a 128hp 1.0-litre and a larger 1.3-litre turbocharged mill.
The Pulse though will not come to India with Stellantis focusing on the Jeep and Citroen brands in the domestic markets.
Under Stellantis, three new SUVs are being planned for India, which includes the Jeep three-row SUV, the Citroen CC21 compact SUV , and a derivative of the CC21 that will become the Jeep sub-four-metre SUV for our market.
