Fiat has launched the new 500X Sport which presents several important technical innovations intended to boost dynamism, driving precision and control. Fiat 500X, like the iconic 500, brings with it all the Italian beauty that, in terms of style and elegance, has always fascinated the world

Fiat 500X exterior’s design is achieved through the many sporting elements offered as standard: these include the side skirts and the arches over the body-coloured wheels; the diffuser-style rear bumper; the dual chrome exhaust – designed exclusively for this Fiat model – and the Full LED lighting systems that provide 160% more power than halogens but with reduced energy consumption. The Full LED headlights are coupled with LED fog lamps, creating a homogeneous and sporty light signature.

By the end of the year, new 19-inch wheels will be available, with a sporty look developed by Mopar, the brand dedicated to assistance, spare parts and customer support for FCA vehicles. They are distinguished by their personalisation possibilities: each wheel, for instance, can accommodate a set of 5 possible inserts – in the colours Matte Bronze, Miron, Dark Miron, Copper and Titanium. These can also be mounted by the customer or by the dealer thanks to a simple clip (a visit to the dealer is only required for disassembly). The novelty will enrich the already ample collection of Authentic Accessories supplied by Mopar specially for the Fiat 500X Sport.

The same sporty and elegant style of the exterior is also found in the interior of this new top-of-the-range version. This is demonstrated by the dark shade for the imperial and the front uprights; the specific TFT graphics of the instrument panel and its red elements; the aluminium gear-knob; the techno-leather sports steering wheel, cut underneath; the dashboard in titanium grey; and the detailing in Myron with finishing in Red Seduction. On request, you can equip your 500X Sport with a precious Alcantara covering for the sporty silhouetted steering wheel and the instrument panel cover, a touch of sporting elegance unique in this segment, featuring hand-crafted red stitching. The interior is completed by new exclusive seats in black fabric with vinyl inserts and a grey “500” logo, the black vinyl bezel and special stitching in grey and red. On request, however, you can have the seats upholstered in black leather with titanium grey finishing, in addition to the sporty aluminium pedals and the front mats with personalised stitching.

As well as being outstandingly sporty, the new 500X boasts a rich technological assortment that offers highly innovative driving assistance systems as standard, including “Traffic Sign Recognition”, “Speed Advisor” and “Lane Assist”, the automatic lane maintenance system. And to make any journey more comfortable, also standard are the Uconnect 7″ system, with satellite navigator, predisposed for Apple CarPlay and with Android Auto compatibility; as does automatic climate control, Cruise Control with speed limiter. Completing the equipment are the rear parking sensors and the electric parking brake.

Finally, to meet any mobility need, the new Fiat 500X Sport can be equipped with all the engines in the range, combined with front-wheel drive. In more detail, two FireFly Turbo petrol engines are available: a 1.0 with 120 HP and six-speed manual gearbox, and a 1.3 with 150 HP and six-speed DCT dual-clutch automatic transmission (plus steering wheel controls on request). Also available are two Multijet turbo-diesels: a 1.3 with 95 HP combined with a five-speed manual transmission and a 1.6 with 120 HP and six-speed manual transmission or an automatic dual-clutch DCT six-speed gearbox (steering wheel controls on request).
