Fiat has yet again reinvented the classic 500 with the arrival of the new 500X. It comes in distinct 'city' and 'off-road' looks as part of the special Opening Edition, taking on all of life's little adventures in style.
The rugged styling of the 'off-road' look includes strong bumpers, roof bars, expressive headlights and underside protection. The city car sports tinted rear windows, a curvier shape and less pronounced body panel contouring. Both have the trademark smooth and compact Fiat silhouette, and fog lights with cornering and daytime running lights are part of the front face.
On the inside, the 500X is highly functional and flexible. The load space is a generous 350 litres with all of the seats in place, expanding to an impressive 1,000-litre capacity when you fold the rear seats flat. The boot can also be fitted with a removable and adjustable load platform to make it even more accessible.
Optional eight-way adjustment for the front seats means it's easy to find the most comfortable and relaxed driving position. Soft-touch upholstery fabrics and carbon or brushed aluminium trims create an elegant atmosphere. You can also specify optional eco-leather inserts for the seats as an added premium touch.
Uconnect infotainment comes to the car on a five-inch or 6.5-inch touchscreen, depending on the equipment level. It's one of the many advanced technologies that Fiat has packed into the car. At the centre 'tunnel', the electronic parking brake is joined by a special Mood Selector with three tailored driving modes.
A selection of Multijet diesel and Multiair petrol engines is available with both versions. You also have the choice of three gearboxes: five-speed and six-speed manual transmissions and a six-speed twin-clutch automatic.
The 500X follows the 500 and the roomy 500L in achieving a high level of safety inside and out. The Dynamic Safety Pack includes clever blind spot monitoring, a rear view camera and automatic brake control between 4mph and 124mph.
