Characterised by distinctive, elegant style details, the new Fiat 500X is sure to win over young, dynamic and metropolitan customers. On the other hand, a decidedly more off-road look and equipment make the 500X Cross the ideal solution for lovers of leisure and outdoor activities.
Designed by the Centro Stile Fiat, the new 500X represents a new dimension of the unmistakable 500 where its iconic style and the modern concept of the crossover collide, with the addition of the respectable off-road capability ensured by the Cross version.
With a big personality and distinctively Italian design, the new car is characterised by flexibility, rationality and quality firmly embedded in its compact dimensions, in the ample interior space and the choice of premium materials and fabrics, as well as the most sophisticated technology in the service of safety, comfort and well-being on board.
The solid, robust appearance of the car finds its perfect stylistic counterpart in the harmonious line, which emerges in dimensions ideal for customers looking for comfort space and the equipment typical of compact saloons.
At the same time, the 500X also gives a nod to those who need to tackle urban traffic every day, thanks to its modest dimensions: it’s 4.25 m long (200 mm more for the Fiat 500X Cross version), 1.8 m wide and 1.61 m in height.
Customer can chose from seven different exterior colours that emphasises the sensual form of the Fiat 500X, further enhanced by the different designs for the 17 and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The new Fiat 500X offers various combinations of engines and transmissions to meet all usage requirements, always with respect for nature and maximum efficiency in terms of performance, consumption and emissions.
The following petrol engines will become available: 81 kW 1.6 “E-torQ” (5-speed manual gearbox and front-wheel drive), 103 kW 1.4 Turbo MultiAir II (front-wheel drive and 6-speed manual gearbox or twin-clutch 6-speed automatic).
All Fiat products come standard with a three year / 100,000 km warranty and maintenance plan.
