The Fiat 500X
The Fiat 500X is a compact crossover extension of the 500 family that’s aiming to take the fight to the competitors such as the Nissan Juke, Peugeot 2008, the Mini Countryman, Renault Captur, and the Vauxhall Mokka.
There are 2 models in the range – the City Look and the Off-Road Look. There are three City Look trims – Pop, Pop Star and Lounge. The entry-level models come with 16in steel wheels, electrically adjustable and heated wing mirrors, rear spoiler, hill hold assist and electric windows, as standard, while inside there is air conditioning, USB connectivity and cruise control.
Upgrade to the Pop Star trim and you’ll find 17in alloy wheels, front fog lights, rear parking sensors, climate control, and Fiat’s Uconnect infotainment system with a 5.0in touchscreen display and Bluetooth. The range-topping Lounge 500Xs add 18in alloys, bi-xenon headlights, a chrome exhaust, keyless entry and start, and sat nav.
On the Off-Road side there are two trims to choose from – Cross and Cross Plus. The former gains 17in alloys, roof rails, cruise control, rear parking sensors and hill start assist, while inside there is a partial leather upholstery, climate control and Fiat’s Uconnect infotainment system. Upgrading to the Cross Plus adds luxuries such as bi-xenon headlights, sat nav, and keyless entry and start.
Boot space is generous and a useful shape, offering 350 litres of space, with easy to fold seats that leave a flat load deck.
The 118bhp 1.6-litre diesel is expected to be the UK’s best-seller. It’s good for a 0-62mph sprint in 10.5sec and 69.9mpg combined, while issuing a competitive 109g/km of CO2. Not bad at all!
Overall it’s still got great style and with a roomy cabin, great interior, sensible prices and decent equipment, it makes for a great option.
