Trying to gain traction in the small car market requires not one model, but a whole family - which is why the new Fiat 500X has been added to the successful (and retro) 500 range of Fiat's superminis. This third distinct model in the 500 line, after 500C and 500L, boasts rugged looks and is set to take on the MINI Countryman and closely related Jeep Renegade at their own game.

Running costs

When it comes to Fiat 500X running costs the new car performs well.

The best performing engine of the range is the 1.6-litre diesel two-wheel drive model with an official combined figure of 68.9mpg. If you choose the 1.4-litre petrol option, this also performs well with an official consumption figure of 47.1mpg.

Use these as a benchmark rather than a guide to what you should be achieving in real world driving though. Dependant on how you drive the Fiat 500X will determine how well you fare on fuel consumption, if you use the car mainly for travelling down the motorway or long distance travel you will achieve more than if you drive shorter journeys around town or off-road.

Emissions summary

Fiat 500X emissions are competitive but not class leading, the lowest emitting of the range is the 1.6-litre MultiJet II diesel which emits 109g/km.

New engine technology, standard Stop/Start across the range and an extensive use of high-strength steel (around 70 percent of the total) which not only helps improve the cars strength in a collision, but also reduces the cars overall weight, has all helped to keep CO2 emissions relatively low.
