The order books for the new Fiat 500X "Opening Edition" are now open.
Only 500 examples of the new special series will be available in the UK, offering customers the chance to not only be one of the first to own Fiat's stylish new crossover, but also to benefit from a host of additional equipment at no extra cost.
Both versions of the Fiat are available with 325 examples of the elegant 4X2 "City Look" and 175 examples of the rugged AWD "Off-Road Look" model. The 4X2 version is based on the Pop Star trim level, which usually comes equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, body-coloured bumpers, cruise control and many other features including 'Drive Mood' selector.
However, the Opening Edition is enhanced with special "Art Grey" pastel paint, 18-inch alloy wheels, the Safety Pack (Lane Assist, Blind Spot Assist, ParkView reversing camera and "Brake Control" collision mitigation system) and the Comfort Pack which includes features like Keyless Entry & Keyless Go.
The AWD version is powered by the 2.0 MultiJet II 140hp engine with a 9-speed automatic transmission as standard, and is available only in tri-coat "Amore Red". Like the 4X2 version, it includes a long list of extra equipment including a black leather interior with red inserts, Visibility Pack (rain and light sensors, power folding door mirrors, electro-chromic rear view mirror), steering wheel paddle shifters and an Opening Edition badge. This is in addition to the HID headlamps, adjustable cargo floor and 3.5-inch TFT colour display. Satellite navigation already comes standard on the top-of-the-range Cross Plus model
