The four-door hatchback version of the Fiat 500, the new Fiat 500X is a supermini-SUV crossover that offers the style you’ve come to expect from the evergreen classic. The new Fiat 500x is an ideal car for a growing family with its roomy cabin, luggage capacity and range of new features, all of which set it apart from other cars in its class. There are three trim levels to choose from – Pop, Pop Star and Lounge.
The Fiat 500’s ‘smile’ is still very much in evidence, with the eyes and mouth represented by expressive headlamps and front grille respectively. A chrome ‘moustache’ sports the iconic Fiat emblem, and the 500X emblem situated below is just one example of the contemporary design twists evident throughout the vehicle. The body is subtly elongated to incorporate rear doors without sacrificing the distinctive 500 silhouette. Hubcaps adorn the 16-inch steel wheels, providing a striking look from the side.
The new Fiat 500X can carry five passengers, with each seat ergonomically designed to provide optimal comfort. The driver can set his or her ideal driving position with the aid of a height-adjustable seat, reducing physical strain even on long journeys. Manual air-conditioning comes as standard, enabling all on board to remain as fresh as possible – no matter how warm it might be outside.
There is a choice of five engines, from a manual transmission 1.6-litre 108bhp petrol engine to the 1.6-litre diesel engine that features 118bhp and front-wheel drive. The latter option produces CO2 emissions as low as 109g/km and is capable of up to 68.9mpg. A 1.4-litre engine enables you to go from 0-60mph in around ten seconds, before reaching a top speed of 118mph.The new Fiat 500X also has the option of automatic six-speed dual clutch transmission.
Six airbags are located around the cabin, providing optimal safety in the unlikely event of a collision. Electronic Stability Control with Anti-Slip Regulation is standard, allowing you to maintain control of the new Fiat 500X in a variety of tricky road conditions. Other features include Hill-holder which enables you to start the vehicle on a slope without any danger of rolling back.
Getting in and out of the car is easy with the aid of a remote control function that unlocks and locks the doors. Wing mirrors can be adjusted electronically and come with a defrost function – ideal when the temperature drops. A 3.5-inch multifunction display with TFT technology provides you with access to a range of data, including fuel economy, driving range and outside temperature. An electronic parking brake replaces the standard lever and ensures that the new Fiat 500X always maintains a perfectly stationary position whenever you need it to. The push of a button allows you to operate front and rear windows electrically. Choose from a wide variety of radio stations or plug-and-play your compatible portable devices via the USB and AUX connections.
