The 2023 FIAT 500X lineup narrows to two trim levels, the base Pop and spunky Sport. The retractable fabric roof introduced last year returns as an option. The 500X debuted in 2016 and received its last major refresh in 2019.
Choosing Your Fiat 500X
The 500X now comes in two trim levels: Pop and Sport. Pricing for the Fiat 500X Pop starts at $30,560 including destination, and the Sport is priced from $33,550.
The sole engine for the 500X is a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder that makes 177 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque. All models come with a nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
The 500X is EPA-rated at 24 miles per gallon city, 30 mpg highway, and 26 combined.
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The 500X is a subcompact, two-row crossover with seating for five. Cargo space measures just 14.1 cubic feet, about the same as a conventional trunk. Folding the rear seat opens up 39.8 cubic feet, which is acceptable for the smallest class of crossover but still below average.
The 500X starts out with automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Front parking sensors are included in Pop's $695 Comfort Group and are standard on the Sport. Adaptive cruise control and automatic high beams are available on the Sport only in the $995 Technology Group.
The infotainment system for both 500X trims includes a 7-inch touchscreen, six speakers, satellite radio, four USB ports, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Navigation is available on the Sport as part of the Technology Package.
The Pop comes equipped with cloth upholstery, heated front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated side mirrors, full LED exterior lighting, automatic wipers with de-icers, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. In addition to the front parking sensors, the Comfort Group provides a color driver info display and dual-zone automatic climate control. Buyers can select 18-inch wheels ($795) and a contrasting black roof ($695). The retracting fabric roof provides a convertible-like experience for $1,250.
The Sport receives dark gray body trim, sport seats, and standard 18-inch wheels. The $955 Technology Group adds navigation, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams. The black and fabric roofs remain available.
The 2023 FIAT 500X trims differ in appearance details and not much else. The only compelling reason for upgrading to the Sport is to access the Technology Group.
