Fiat's 500X is finally here and it's the crossover we've all been waiting for.
No one can resist the cheeky grin of the 500, add more space, two more doors and four-wheel drive capability and you've got a winning formula.
At the top of the range sits the 'Cross' 2.0-litre diesel model with 138bhp and a brand-new nine-speed automatic gearbox, the best option if you want to take your 500X off-road. However, it's also available with a 1.4-litre petrol and 1.6-litre diesel variants mated to a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic or manual gearboxes respectively.
The crossover comes in both 'City Look' and 'Off-Road Look' guises. 'Off-Road Look' features more rugged plastic under-guards to protect vital components and unique 'Trekking' alloy wheels, while 'City Look' is more refined for city goers.
Both the 'Off-Road Look' and 'City Look' models come packed with fantastic options, such as keyless entry, climate control, heated seats perfect if you're out in the snow plus safety features like brake assist, blind spot assist and a rear-view camera. The built in media system is easy to use with connectivity for your media device or phone and satellite navigation featuring 3D landmarks.
