Overview (Final Score: B)
The 2016 Fiat 500X is an all-new model offered by Fiat Chrysler Automotive on a global market. The signature style and fun appeal of the 500X is eclipsed only by its unusually upscale interior and excellent safety ratings.
The 500X seats five and has two engine options with one transmission choice each. Front-wheel or all-wheel drive is available and five trim levels are offered. Several package options and other upgrades are also available, including unusually advanced safety and infotainment at the higher trims.
The compact crossover segment is the fastest-growing automotive segment in North America and the Fiat 500X sets itself apart in the entry-level market for its upscale styling and unique looks. The 500X is unmistakably a Fiat and definitely Italian, which holds wide market appeal with the segment’s most active buyers.
