The Fiat 500X SUV and Tipo hatchback have been updated for 2022. The changes include a new range of trim levels and minor styling tweaks to keep the models competitive with rivals such as the Nissan Juke and Ford Focus.
The revised 500X gets a couple of minor styling changes, with new ‘500’ badging on the front bumper and a new ‘FIAT’ badge on the rear hatch. Buyers can pick from the standard 500X or the Dolcevita convertible, which features a folding fabric roof panel.
There’s a choice of three trim levels, with the entry-level Club trim starting from £22,085, which features 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, air-conditioning and a seven-inch touchscreen.
Moving up the range, the 500X Cross gets rugged off-road-inspired styling and larger 17-inch alloys. It also features more standard equipment, with a reversing camera, automatic climate control, LED headlights and a reversing camera. Prices start from £23,585 for the hardtop model, increasing to £26,235 for the Dolcevita convertible.
At the top of the range, the 500X Sport starts from £25,235 for the hardtop and £27,735 for the convertible. It gets sportier body styling with colour-coded bumpers and side skirts, an Alcantara steering wheel, puddle lights and a digital display in the dial cluster.
The updated 500X is available only with a 118bhp 1.0-litre ‘Firefly’ petrol engine. All models are front-wheel drive with a six-speed manual gearbox.
The revisions to the Fiat Tipo range are limited to a few specification changes, with the trim levels now called Tipo, City Life and Cross. The entry-level model starts from £19,595 and comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control, a seven-inch touchscreen and electric heated door mirrors.
The City Life trim is priced from £20,595 and features LED headlights and tail-lights, 17-inch alloy wheels and front foglights. Inside, a seven-inch digital dial cluster and electric lumbar support for the driver's seat are standard.
The range-topping Cross trim has off-road-inspired bodywork cladding, along with a slightly raised ride height, roof bars and body coloured door mirror caps. It also features upgraded technology, with a reversing camera, sat nav and automatic high-beam for the headlights. Prices start from £22,595.
The Tipo can only be specced with a 1.0-litre petrol engine, producing 99bhp. Every model is front-wheel drive and equipped with a five-speed manual gearbox.
