Facelifted Fiat 500X available to order now
Updated looks and new engines for Fiat 500X compact crossover
The facelifted Fiat 500X is available to order now, priced from £16,995. Styling changes consist of new daytime running lights and LED tail-lights across the range, as well as full LED headlights for the top-spec model, and redesigned front and rear bumpers.
Inside, there’s a redesigned instrument cluster with updated graphics and a new steering wheel that incorporates controls for the stereo. All versions of the new 500X come with a seven-inch touchscreen Uconnect infotainment system, which has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.
The updated Fiat 500X is the first Fiat to feature the company’s next generation of turbocharged petrol engines, including a 1.0-litre three-cylinder producing 118bhp and a 1.3-litre four-cylinder that produces 148bhp. The entry-level engine option becomes the 108bhp 1.6-litre E-Torq petrol engine, which was available in the outgoing model.
The new 500X will be offered in three trim levels, starting with Urban and moving up through City Cross to range-topping Cross Plus.
The Urban model starts at £16,995 and comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, a ‘Techno-leather’ steering wheel, seven-inch Uconnect infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, USB connectivity, air-conditioning and cruise control.
Moving up to a City Cross model costs £18,995 and adds some off-roader styling, 17-inch alloy wheels, satin-chrome inserts, front foglights, climate control and rear parking sensors. More importantly, it also gives you the option of the two more modern turbocharged petrol engines.
The top-of-the-range Cross Plus model has full LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, roof bars, tinted rear windows, sat nav and a rear parking camera, and starts at £20,995.
Safety assistance systems such as traffic-sign recognition, a speed-limit advisor and lane-keeping assistance are now equipped to the 500X as standard, while blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control and city braking are available as options.
The facelifted Fiat 500X is available to order now. Fiat is already offering 0% APR and up to £1,000 as a deposit contribution if you buy on PCP finance.
