2016 FIAT 500X OVERVIEW

Fiat's first true crossover, the compact 500X adds a touch of ruggedness and some much-needed utility to the 500 line. It's also the most mainstream Fiat model, offering an array of safety and comfort features to fully satisfy American tastes.

What's New for 2016

The 500X is an all-new model.

Choosing Your FIAT 500X

The 500X features a tallish body and elevated ride height, which is what distinguishes it from typical hatchbacks and wagons. You get up to 60 cubic feet of cargo space and a folding passenger seat so you can carry still more. The base 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine puts out 160 horsepower and comes only with a six-speed manual transmission. Standard on most models is a 2.4-liter turbo four-cylinder with 180 horsepower and a nine-speed automatic. This setup is mandatory with all-wheel drive, which adds $1,900 to the MSRP.

The 500X is offered in five trim levels:

Pop

Comes with front-wheel drive and the 1.4-liter engine, plus basics such as air conditioning and power windows and locks. There are no option packages for the Pop, but you can add the 1.6-liter and automatic for $1,500.

Easy

Gets additional standard equipment, including 17-inch wheels, keyless entry and a 5-inch touchscreen. The 1.6-liter is standard at this level and above, and all-wheel drive is available.

Trekking

Adds automatic headlamps, a color driver information display, fog lamps and satin chrome exterior trim.

Lounge

Equipped like the Easy, but with a larger load of standard equipment, including the Uconnect infotainment interface, a navigation system, HD radio, heated front seats and dual-zone automatic climate control. Leather seating is optional.

Trekking Plus

Combines the features of the Trekking and Lounge, then adds 18-inch wheels, rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring and standard leather upholstery.

Most equipment found on the line-topping Trekking Plus is available on lesser trims through a series of option packages. All models except the Pop are eligible for additional package content such as a sunroof, forward collision alert with automatic braking, lane departure warning and a Beats sound system.

CarsDirect Tip

When it comes to features for the money, the mid-level Trekking is our top pick. We suspect most buyers will feel the same way. But if you must have leather seats, a jump to the Lounge or Trekking Plus is mandatory.
