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.

Equipment

Fiat 500X equipment levels are pretty good; there are two different versions of the 500X to choose from and five trim levels which follow a similar naming structure to the hatchback and 500L models. For the two-wheel drive versions you have three trims to choose from; Pop, Pop Star and Lounge and for those who want off-roading ability the 4x4 versions will be available in two trims; Cross and Cross Plus.

Exclusive launch edition

Fiat is offering an exclusive “Opening Edition” of the 500X which is available to order online only and is offered with a choice of three powertrains: a 138bhp 1.4 Turbo MultiAir II manual two-wheel drive version, a 118bhp 1.6 MultiJet II two-wheel drive manual and a 138bhp 2.0 MultiJet II 4x4 nine-speed automatic.

Two-wheel drive models will only be available with an “Art Grey” pastel paint finish and will include a range of features as standard including 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, Lane Assist, reversing camera, an anti-collision system, Keyless Entry & Go system and electric lumbar adjustment on the front seats – items normally relegated to the options list. Plus they get an exclusive “Opening Edition” badge.

The 4x4 version is offered only in “Amore Red” and, like the two-wheel drive versions, includes a range of additional equipment including the Uconnect 6.5-inch infotainment system with sat-nav, a red-and-black leather interior, rain and light sensors and folding door mirrors.

Standard Fiat 500X Equipment

The 500X range starts with the Pop trim which offers 16-inch wheels, body coloured front and rear bumpers, electric heated door mirrors, manual air conditioning, daytime running lights, cruise control with speed limiter, electric front and rear windows, a height-adjustable driver's seat and an electric handbrake.

Moving up the range to Pop Star adds 17-inch alloy wheels, body-coloured door mirrors, front fog lights, automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, a drive mode selector with three different modes and the Uconnect infotainment system with a five-inch touchscreen featuring Bluetooth, music streaming connectivity and access to apps on your smartphone.

Top of the two-wheel drive range is Lounge which offers 18-inch alloy wheels with gloss silver finish, tinted windows and exterior chrome trim, a 6.5-inch Uconnect infotainment system with navigation, an adjustable cargo floor, adjustable front armrest with storage, ambient interior lighting and front floor mats.

If you are looking for a Fiat 500X with off-roading ability then you’ll have two trims to choose from; Cross and Cross Plus.

The Cross trim comes with all the kit available in Pop Star trim with the inclusion of a Traction Plus system, dark tinted rear windows, roof bars, unique bumpers front and rear with chrome exhaust trims, Cross-specific 17-inch alloy wheels, a special dashboard finish and an adjustable front armrest with storage as standard.

The range-topping Fiat 500X Cross Plus builds on the specification of the Cross adding HID headlamps, an adjustable cargo floor, front floor mats, Cross Plus-specific 18-inch alloy wheels; the 6.5-inch Uconnect infotainment system with 3D navigation and ambient interior lighting.

Optional Fiat 500X Equipment

The Fiat 500X has 12 colours to choose from plus a range of optional kit available depending on the trim you choose.

Option packs that will be worth considering include the Safety Pack which bundles Lane Assist, Blind Spot Assist, ParkView reversing camera and a new Brake Anti-collision system together and the Comfort Pack which includes Keyless Entry & Go; front armrest and electric lumbar adjustment on the front seats.

Also available as an option is the upgraded BeatsAudio™ sound system, developed in collaboration with Beats by Dr. Dre. The premium hi-fi system boasts a 560W, eight-channel digital amplifier with eight speakers and a subwoofer in the boot, rather than the 120W four-speaker system or 180W six-speaker configuration found in standard models.
