2017 FIAT 500X Exterior

2017 FIAT 500X Overview (See Available Styles)

  • Subcompact crossover with revised trim levels
  • Two turbocharged 4-cylinder options
  • All-wheel drive is available
The 2017 Fiat 500X is a subcompact crossover that shares its platform with the Jeep Renegade. It competes with the Mazda CX-3, MINI Countryman, and Chevrolet Trax. This year, the trim levels have been consolidated down to three: the Pop, Trekking, and Lounge.

As a tiny crossover, the 500X dares to be a little more versatile and adventurous, while retaining the cute microcar aesthetic that Fiats are known for. The Trekking trim looks a bit more rugged with its own unique black-clad styling. The frontend features the familiar pebble-shaped headlights, a narrow-slit grille, signature lights, and a sporty, segmented lower fascia. Standard features include power/heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators and 16-inch wheels. Front fog lights, a trailer hitch receiver, and larger 17- or 18-inch aluminum wheels are available as well.

Under the hood, the 500X has two 4-cylinder engine options. The base model is powered by a standard 160-hp, turbocharged 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. All of the other models get a more powerful 180-hp, turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a 9-speed automatic. Models with the automatic will also get a standard driving mode selector, which allows the driver to choose between Normal, Sport, and Traction Plus driving modes. Front-wheel drive comes standard, but an all-wheel drive system with a disconnecting rear axle is available.

Inside, the 500X seats five passengers and has 18.5 cubic feet of rear cargo room, which expands to 50.8 cubic feet with the 60/40-split rear seat folded down. Much like the exterior, the interior is also highly customizable with six different material configurations. A 5-inch center screen comes standard, with a larger 6.5-inch touchscreen optional. Standard features include air conditioning, USB port, and steering wheel mounted audio controls. Moving up to the Easy trim level adds Bluetooth connectivity and Uconnect, one of our favorite infotainment systems. Other options include leather upholstery, HD radio, remote start, navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control, and heated front seats.

Standard safety features include six airbags, antilock brakes, and an electronic stability system. Plenty of safety technology is available as well, including a backup camera, rear park assist, blind spot warnings with rear cross-path detection, and lane departure warnings.
