The refreshed Fiat 500X makes a hot contender in the family crossover sector

The Fiat 500X has been given a complete refresh for 2019, making it one-to-watch in the small family crossover bracket.

This crossover sibling of the Fiat 500 was arguably due an update, and this heavily revised version certainly packs a punch as an innovative and dynamic compact crossover. The numerous changes inside and out are subtle but distinctive, and include the option of two entirely new turbocharged petrol engines and a host of new active safety tech. The latest Fiat 500X is available with a choice of three trim levels: Urban, City Cross and Cross Plus.

The most notable change to the revamped Fiat 500X when it comes to driving experience is under the bonnet, where two entirely new turbocharged petrol engines are on offer. These sit within the City Cross and Cross Plus trims: the former has the 1.0-litre unit on board, while the latter has a 1.3-litre engine with the option of an automatic or a six-speed manual gearbox. 

The exterior styling has also been given an update while still maintaining the iconic retro 500 look. It now boasts new LED daytime running lights, LED headlights and rear lights as standard across the whole range – these are, of course, rounded to remind us of the original 500!

Inside, Fiat have worked hard to improve the look and feel of the cabin, with more soft-touch materials than before and new seat designs. There’s also a new steering wheel, plus the dials have been treated to better graphics and repositioned instrumentation to improve ergonomics. The cockpit is updated to integrate more technology: there’s a 7-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth hands-free interface, audio streaming, text reader and voice recognition. The Fiat 500X also comes with an abundance of safety tech, including traffic sign recognition, lane assist and autonomous emergency brake.

With an impressive engine line-up, innovative technology and intuitive on-board technology, the revamped Fiat 500X is set to create a storm in the small family crossover sector. Discover it for yourself at your local Arbury!

Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Cathedral Motor Company Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed.
