With two versions on offer, there is a Fiat 500X to suit
every need and taste: one is designed to appeal to those with a fun-loving,
spirited, metropolitan outlook while another, more rugged version has been
designed with stylish, active adventures in mind.
Designed in the Centro Stile FIAT, the new 500X not only has clear links to its siblings in the current 500 family but also the iconic 1957 original, most notably its large, circular headlamps (albeit with a sportier, more aggressive shape than the 500 or 500L), its unmistakable nose brightwork and distinctive clamshell bonnet.
Compact on the outside, measuring 4.25m in length (the FIAT 500X Cross/Cross Plus is 2cm longer), 1.80m in width and 1.60m in height (1.61 with roof bars, 1.62 with 4WD) with a slippery drag co-efficient of 0.34 CX, the FIAT 500X is also spacious, flexible and inviting on the inside, with extensive use of high-grade materials, top-quality finishes and practical storage compartments, including a spacious 350-litre luggage compartment.
The new front seats offer a high degree of comfort and adjustability with wraparound bolstering and perfectly aligned arm rests in the centre console and door trims to aid relaxed cruising. With a “H point” of 669mm (distance from the ground to the driver’s hip) the FIAT 500X offers excellent visibility while also ensuring the passengers feel safely enclosed and connected with the vehicle. Drivers of all-wheel drive versions sit 697mm from the ground, mainly due to the revised suspension settings and different wheels and tyres.

In keeping with its philosophy of appealing to every spectrum of customer, the FIAT 500X will be available with a broad range of powertrain options in the UK. Front-wheel drive, petrol-powered models are either equipped with a 110hp, 1.6-litre "E-torQ" engine with a five-speed manual gearbox or a 140hp 1.4-litre Turbo MultiAir II petrol engine with either a new-generation six-speed manual gearbox or FIAT Powertrain’s renowned six-speed twin-clutch transmission. The all-wheel drive petrol model, which is equipped with a first-in-class, nine-speed automatic transmission as standard, is powered by a 170hp, 1.4-litre Turbo MultiAir II engine.
The front-wheel drive diesel range consists of the 95hp, 1.3-litre MultiJet II turbo diesel, equipped with a five-speed manual gearbox, and the 120hp 1.6-litre MultiJet II turbo diesel equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox.
The four-wheel drive diesel option is the 140hp 2.0-litre MultiJet II turbo diesel, which will be available with a six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic transmission.
The new nine-speed automatic transmission is a first not only for FIAT but also for the crossover segment in which the 500X competes. This new, electronically-controlled, nine-speed automatic transmission features advanced shift management to combine optimum driving pleasure with efficiency, while also offering the possibility of switching to manual-sequential mode.
In addition, the latest active safety systems are available to improve handling and assist the driver, including sophisticated ESC (Electronic Stability Control) and DST (Dynamic Steering Torque) systems, which improve both driving safety and handling performance by actively correcting over and understeer. DST is completely integrated into the vehicle's ESC system and intervenes to correct potentially dangerous situations caused by excessive deflection angles or instability due to poor wheel grip.
ESC with DST; ABS with EBD; ERM (electronic rollover mitigation); Hill Start Assist; ASR (traction control); MSR (gearshift engine torque management); electronic parking braking, TPMS (tyre pressure monitoring system); front fog lights with cornering illumination (excluding Pop); automatic windscreen demisting (excluding Pop) and six airbags are all standard as part of the FIAT 500X’s safety package.
Advanced safety options include ACC (adaptive cruise control), Lane Assist (lane departure warning system); Blind Spot Assist (lane change assistance system); ParkView reversing camera and Rear Cross Path (reversing blind spot warning system) will also be available, as is a new "Brake Control" assisted braking system, which can intervene between speeds of 4mph and 120mph to apply emergency braking, thereby helping prevent, or mitigate the consequences of, a collision if the driver fails to respond to the audio, visual or brief deceleration alerts.
