2019 FIAT 500X Overview

The Fiat 500X was the Italian marque's first true crossover that not only brought another dimension to the 500 lineup, but ticked a lot of boxes for consumers looking for some utility, all-weather capability, and style. The 2019 Fiat 500X faces more competition than before, but still manages to stand out thanks to its Italian styling and lengthy list of available safety and technology features.

What's New for 2019

The 500X gets a mid-cycle refresh for the 2019 model year. Major news is an all-new turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine that's now standard throughout the entire range. Power is rated at 177 horsepower and 210 pound-feet of torque. Aiding in the crossover's versatility is a standard all-wheel-drive system, which was optional before.

If you look closely at the 500X's exterior, you'll notice a handful of changes. There's a new front and rear fascia, LED daytime running lights, and LED headlights and taillights. Three new wheel options and three new paint schemes join the party, too. On the inside, the crossover gets new fabric seats, a redesigned steering wheel, and renovated gauges.


Choosing Your FIAT 500X

For 2019, Fiat has simplified things with the 500X by only offering one powertrain. The new 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is standard, as is a nine-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is standard now, too. Fuel economy ratings for the 500X now sit at an EPA-estimated 24 miles per gallon city, 30 mpg highway, and 26 combined.

While the 500X may share a lot of the same components and design as the 500L, the crossover is clearly aimed at consumers wanting something that's a little more rugged. The 500X has black body cladding on the lower part of the body and has 7.9 inches of ground clearance. While it doesn't have the same off-roading prowess as its Jeep sibling – the Renegade – the 500X can still get a little dirty and through inclement weather.

The 500X's crossover body style also results in 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats in place and a total of 50.8 cubic feet of space in total.

The 500X is available in five trims:


Pricing for the entry-level 500X Pop trim starts at $25,985 (all prices include the $1,495 destination charge). Standard exterior features include 17-inch wheels, body-color exterior mirrors, heated side mirrors, LED taillights, bi-function halogen headlights, and a rear spoiler.

Interior features include cloth bucket seats, a six-way manually-adjustable driver's seat, a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, two USB ports, a six-speaker audio system, Uconnect 4, a 3.5-inch TFT display, a 12-volt power outlet, power windows, and power door locks.

The Popular Equipment Package ($595) adds automatic headlights, tinted glass, a rear park-assist system, and satellite radio. The Appearance Package by Mopar ($425) adds a silver valve stem cover, a bright pedal kit, bright door sills, a chrome license plate frame, and premium floor mats. The Base All Weather Package by Mopar ($225) adds front and rear slush mats and a cargo slush mat, while the All Weather Plus Package by Mopar ($495) also includes front and rear splash guards and wheel locks.

Standalone options include a Beats Premium Audio System ($695), a dual-pane power sunroof ($1,250), and an engine block heater ($100).

Pop Blue Sky

The Pop Blue Sky has a starting price of $27,180, and, as its name suggests, it brings some unique blue elements. Standard equipment over the Pop includes 17-inch matte black wheels, automatic headlights, fog lights, cloth seats with a blue insert, a dual-pane power sunroof, and blue instrument panel bezels. Available packages and standalone options match those found on the base Pop trim.


Moving up to the Trekking brings a price tag of $27,490. Standard equipment includes automatic headlights, fog lights, satellite radio, tinted glass, and a reversible height adjust load floor.

The three previously mentioned Mopar packages return alongside five new packages. The Cold Weather Group ($295) adds heated front seats and a windshield wiper de-icer. The Comfort Group ($795) includes dual-zone climate control, an eight-way power adjustable driver's seat, ambient interior lighting, four-way power lumbar adjustment for the driver's seat, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

The Driver Assistance Group ($895) includes bi-function LED projector headlights, front fog lights, and front and rear parking sensors. Ticking the box for the Leather Seat Group ($995) adds a driver seat back pocket and leather-trimmed bucket seats. Lastly, the Advanced Driver Assistance Group ($1,395) brings adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beams, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, full-speed forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and rain-sensitive windshield wipers.

Over the Trekking model, standard features include 18-inch wheels, black exterior mirrors, black door handles, black side roof rails, black exterior accents, premium cloth upholstery, black interior accents, vinyl door trim panel, and gloss black instrument panel bezels. Available packages mimic the ones found on the Trekking trim.

Trekking Plus

The range-topping Trekking Plus starts at $30,690. Over the Trekking, the Trekking Plus comes with satin silver door handles, bright chrome exterior accents, leather-trimmed bucket seats, heated front seats, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, and navigation.

Returning packages include the Advanced Driver Assistance Group and the three Mopar groups. The Premium Group ($1,695) is unique to the Trekking Plus and comes with unique 18-inch wheels, the Beats Premium Audio System, and the dual-pane power sunroof. Black roof rails are available for $195.
