The first couple of years that the Fiat 500X was on the market, it was a bit of an experiment into the SUV market for the brand. As the largest of the Fiat models but still a subcompact crossover SUV, the 500X is a vehicle that has been improved for the next model year to give us more of what we want when it’s time to drive. Fiat made the important changes that you will notice and enjoy so that you can make the most of what the 500X has to offer when it’s time to drive.
A New Powertrain Under the Hood
In the past, the Fiat 500X was offered with the choice of a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine or a naturally aspirated 2.4-liter four-cylinder model. The smaller version made 160 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque while the larger engine offered 180 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque. For the next model year, the 500X will use a new 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will make 177 horsepower and 210 lb.-ft. of torque to give you more power than the previous engines offered. This new powertrain will only be offered with a nine-speed automatic transmission and is set up with AWD to give you the SUV capability you need.
More Changes to the Fiat 500X
Take a look at the exterior of this SUV and you’re going to see a new front fascia with upgraded looks that are on the subtle side of things. There are new headlights, an LED ring of lights, and LED taillights to give us a new look that we want to enjoy when we drive. There are three new colors offered which are Italia Blue, Vibrante Green, and Milano Ivory Tricoat to give you some more great ways to have the look you want. You can also choose from three new wheel designs that are offered as more options for your driving pleasure. Inside this little SUV, you’ll see an upgrade instrument cluster, a new steering wheel design, and several other upgrades that make the interior more comfortable and connected for you when it’s time to take a drive. There’s plenty of room for you and your gear so that you can make this the vehicle that brings you the adventures you want and makes it possible for you to drive wherever you want to go.
