The double headlamps, trapezoidal nose and rounded clamshell hood of the 500X pay homage to the original design of the Cinquecento – one of the first popular European city cars.
Designed at the FIAT® Centro Stile studio in Turin, Italy, the 500X features premium interior craftsmanship, soft-touch surfaces and an ergonomic layout to deliver the fun design you expect from a FIAT.
The impressive versatility of the 500X is highlighted by the fold-forward front passenger seat, 60/40 split-folding rear seat, numerous storage compartments and the available height-adjustable rear cargo floor - all designed to make the generous cargo volume that much more useable.
The stylish FIAT® 500X interior is also very comfortable, with available features like dual-zone automatic temperature control, leather-trimmed bucket seats, heated front seats,
12-way power driver's seat including 4-way lumbar adjust and heated premium leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The panoramic dual-pane sunroof provides picturesque views from every seat and creates a wide, spacious feeling inside. The sunroof includes a manual sunshade and is available on Sport, Trekking and Lounge models.SEARCH INVENTORY

The standard engine on Pop, Sport and Trekking FWD models is the 1.4L MultiAir®
I-4 Turbo, delivering 160 horsepower and
184 lb-ft of torque.
Standard on the Lounge and AWD models is the 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir I-4 with
180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque.
Both engines use advanced MultiAir variable valve timing technology to maximize performance and fuel efficiency.
The FIAT® Dynamic Control Selector lets the driver choose from 3 different modes that configure the vehicle dynamics to best adapt to specific conditions.
Auto mode is calibrated to optimize comfort and fuel economy – the best for everyday driving. Sport mode heightens the engine calibrations for more responsiveness, while Traction+ mode maximizes low-speed grip on traction-limited surfaces by allowing additional wheel slip.
The standard 1.4L MultiAir® I-4 Turbo engine is paired with a smooth-shifting 6-speed manual transmission. The 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir I-4 engine is paired with a Class-Exclusive 9-speed automatic transmission.
With 9 speeds it has more range to optimize power delivery and fuel economy, while providing a more responsive driving experience.
The 500X is the first-ever FIAT® to offer all-wheel drive for confident handling in challenging driving conditions.
It employs an innovative rear-axle disconnect to help improve overall fuel economy by only powering the front wheels when full traction is not needed.
AWD is available on Sport, Trekking and Lounge models.
500X models are loaded with over 65 standard and available advanced safety and security features, including:
The available Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist14 can detect the vehicle's position within a lane, and warns you visually and with a haptic “shiver” in the steering wheel if the vehicle starts unintentionally drifting out of its lane without using the indicators.
If the driver does not respond to the warnings, Lane Keep Assist can help gently nudge the vehicle back into the lane by applying corrective steering input.
Using radar and video sensors, the available Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking14 can detect when the 500X is approaching another vehicle or large obstacle in its path too rapidly.
When an object is detected, the system can provide audible and visual warnings and can assist in avoiding or mitigating the incident by actively applying the brakes. The driver has the ability to adjust the distance sensitivity of the sensors and to turn the brake support on or off.
When driving forward, the available Blind-Spot Monitoring14 system continually monitors the vehicle's side blind zones using dual radar sensors. When an object is detected, an indicator illuminates in the appropriate sideview mirror and, if the turn signal is activated, an audible notification sounds.
In reverse, Rear Cross-Path Detection14 automatically monitors for objects and vehicles approaching from either side and is ideal when backing out of tight parking spaces or alleys.
The available ParkView® Rear Back-Up Camera14 provides a wide-angle view of the area immediately behind the vehicle and uses dynamic grid lines on a colour touchscreen to aid the driver to steer safely into place.
The available Park-Sense® Rear Park Assist System14 can detect objects in the rear back-up pathway and also provides an audible and visual warning so you have time to react.
