Fiat’s popular 500X range is fresher than ever and ready for any adventure 2023 has to offer. The dynamic range of exciting models focuses on design, comfort, technology, and safety in a package that only the iconic Fiat 500 range can offer.
Fiat re-imagined the iconic 500 concept when launching the 500X – keeping everything cool about the Fiat 500 and combining it with the practical trend towards cross-over vehicles and the adventures they bring. Since launching the 500X in February 2021, key updates have been added along with the introduction of the Fiat 500X Sport Extended Soft Top (EST) for a limited time. The new Sport EST model offers exceptional grip and optimal handling on the street as well as improved safety and maximum fun.
The dazzling new addition to the 500X range is defined by its extended soft top allowing iconic open-air motoring in the bold cross-over Fiat for the first time. At the touch of a button, the electrically operated folding system offers panoramic fresh air experiences in just 15 seconds, opening virtually the entire roof area of the 500X Sport. The 775mm x 730mm opening can be activated at speeds up to 100km/h and features a one-touch opening, while it closes in two steps for added versatility.
Along with the standard closed roof model, 500X Sport models have stylish design cues to differentiate them from the 500X Cross. Body-coloured wheel arch mouldings, side skirts, and 19-inch wheels give the 500X Sport a more dynamic stance along with Sport badging and dual chrome exhaust tips. The 500X Sport is equipped with a techno leather and Alcantara steering wheel and a titanium-styled finish on the dashboard along with a 3.5” TFT colour cluster. The Sport theme is topped off with the binnacle cover finished in Alcantara.
Free-spirited and built for both stylish outdoor and urban adventures, the Fiat 500X Cross is a bold character ready to take on the toughest challenges. Roof rails and skid plates along with black mirror caps define the adventurer, sitting on 18-inch wheels and all set off by full LED headlamps and LED fog lights.
The Cross comes standard with a soft touch steering wheel, courtesy light on the sun visor as well as automatic dual-zone air conditioning to help you enjoy the drive anytime, anywhere.
Powering your adventures is Fiat’s 1,4-litre direct injection petrol engine, available across the range in a fully automatic six-speed DDCT transmission. With 103kW at 5 000 rpm and 230Nm at 1 750 rpm, the Fiat 500X will conquer any adventure in consummate style. It’s economical, too, returning just 5,7 l/100km on a combined cycle.
The Fiat 500X is brimming with technology including Lane Assist which warns of veering off course and corrects the steering back into the lane while the innovative electric parking brake keeps the vehicle safe, anywhere it’s parked.
The state-of-the-art infotainment system boosts connectivity with a Uconnect 7” HD touchscreen with navigation offering a wide range of functions, including a hands-free system, Bluetooth technology, and voice recognition. Available with Apple CarPlay integration and Android Auto compatibility, the system has a user-friendly interface that allows occupants to manage maps, music, contacts, and more.
The Fiat 500X life isn’t complete without a vast array of standard safety and convenience features that really do make a difference in your everyday adventures.
With six airbags as standard, the Fiat 500X is destined to keep your adventurous spirit on track. Active crash protection includes front airbags for driver and passenger, along with curtain airbags and side bags. Those daytime running lights – inspired by the zero in the 500 logo – create added visibility on the road, along with their distinctive cool factor.
ABS is standard across the range, as is Electronic Stability Control. For added convenience, the hill-holder will make you look like a pro on every uphill pull-off and take away one’s traffic stress.
