The 500X is an urban SUV produced by Fiat since 2014. It is produced in two aesthetic variants: the “City” and the “Off-road”. It is an easily recognizable vehicle whose design has caused much discussion by dividing the fans of the Fiat group between those who like it and those who don’t. The shapes are very rounded, the oval headlights easily recognizable. The standard equipment is limited, and the quality of the infotainment leaves something to be desired. Another sore point of the 500X’s interior is the abundance of rigid plastics. Although the two cars are somewhat different, the Fiat 500X shares various components with the Jeep Renegade. The engines can be of MultiAir or MultiJet technology, both patented by Fiat. 4×4 configurations are also available and can benefit from the “Drive Mood Selector” technology, which allows you to quickly choose the driving style best suited to each situation. A curious mechanical fact is that it is possible to opt for a nine-speed automatic gearbox! As for safety, an automatic emergency braking system is provided free of charge, while the adaptive cruise control must be purchased separately. In 2018 the 500X receives a facelift: now the City and Off-road versions are transformed respectively into “Urban look” and “Cross look” but there are no particular novelties in terms of aesthetics in the exterior or interior. The new optical groups are Full LED. The new turbochargers, called FireFly by Fiat, are added to the previous engines. The prices are generally in line with those of the competition, composed of cars like the Ford EcoSport, the Nissan Juke, and the Peugeot 2008.
