The Fiat 500X – the new compact crossover in the 500 family that marks the latest evolution of the brand -made its worldwide debut at the Paris Motor Show today (Thursday, October 2),

Heir to the Fiat 500 of 1957 – the stylistic reference of the rounded lights and the classic logo with chrome-plated bonnet trim is clear – the new Fiat crossover extends the 500 family, which already comprises the 500, 500C, 500L, 500L Trekking and 500L Living models: cars which are very different in terms of vocation and character, but which have the same roots in common: the iconic Fiat 500.

Built in the updated SATA plant in Melfi (Potenza) and sold in more than 100 countries worldwide, the new Fiat 500X will be available in two different versions – one more “metropolitan” and the other ideal for leisure – equipped with efficient diesel and petrol engines, three types of transmission – manual, 9-speed automatic or twin-clutch 6-speed automatic – and with front-wheel drive, four-wheel drive or front-wheel drive with Traction Plus configurations.

500X goes beyond customer expectations
The Fiat 500X is a crossover not only in motoring terms, but in its appeal to a broad range of different sexes, ages, needs and tastes. In this sense, the “X” symbol represents the customers of the 500X: the young and the mature, lovers of beauty and connoisseurs of character. They are dynamic, with an active social life and they cultivate different passions and interests. What they have in common, however, is the desire to enjoy a satisfying driving experience and express their own personality through a distinctive style. Today they all find a clear, exhaustive answer: Fiat 500X.

Characterised by distinctive, elegant style details, the “metropolitan” version of the 500X is sure to win over young, dynamic and city customers. On the other hand, a decidedly more off-road look and equipment make the 500X more suited to lovers of leisure perfect for those who enjoy outdoor activities who don’t want to give up the unique style of the Fiat 500. 

Style and dimensions
Designed by the Centro Stile Fiat, the new 500X represents a new dimension of the unmistakable 500 where its iconic style and the modern concept of the crossover collide, with the addition of the respectable off-road capability ensured by the version most suitable for an outdoor lifestyle.

With a big personality and distinctively Italian design, the new car is characterised by flexibility, rationality and quality firmly embedded in its compact dimensions, in the ample interior space and the choice of premium materials and fabrics, as well as the most sophisticated technology in the service of safety, comfort and well-being on board.

The solid, robust appearance of the car finds its perfect stylistic counterpart in the harmonious line, which emerges in dimensions ideal for customers looking for comfort space and the equipment typical of compact saloons. At the same time, the 500X also gives a nod to those who need to tackle urban traffic every day, thanks to its modest dimensions: it’s 4.25 metres long (2 cm more for the version suited to leisure), 1.8 metres wide and 1.61 metres in height.

Compact outside, welcoming inside: a large, protective environment with extensive use of fine materials, high-quality finishes and practical storage compartments. A comfortable passenger compartment which is unmistakably ‘Made in Italy’ and offered in no fewer than seven interior configurations, through matching of various types of fabric, leather and colours. This is all made even more functional through the many seat adjustment possibilities and the spacious luggage compartment (350 litres).
