All new look for the Fiat 500x cross­over

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - MOTORING 2019 -

THE Fiat 500X, the orig­i­nal Ital­ian cross­over, has been up­dated in­side and out with new looks and tech­nol­ogy to sat­isfy a driver’s ev­ery needs.

It’s avail­able with a choice of three trim lev­els, Ur­ban, City Cross and Cross, three petrol en­gines, in­clud­ing two brand new more ef­fi­cient turbo petrol en­gines, and now comes with a host of safety as­sis­tance sys­tems as stan­dard across the range. The new Fiat 500X is on sale now priced from €21,795.

It has evolved to be­come even more mod­ern and func­tional as it in­tro­duces new com­fort and safety fea­tures, while adding even more 500 fam­ily style.

New day­light run­ning lights and LED rear light clus­ters are stan­dard across the range, bring­ing it even closer to the look of the rest of the 500 fam­ily. Stan­dard on the Cross, and op­tion­ally avail­able on other trims, are the new LED head­lights, made in part­ner­ship with Mag­neti Marelli.

Re­assert­ing their dis­tinct iden­ti­ties, the new ex­te­rior de­sign highlights the two per­son­al­i­ties of the model - the new Ur­ban look fea­tures an all-new front and rear bumper de­sign to make tack­ling city traf­fic chic, while the new Cross look adds new-look pro­tec­tive skid plates for tak­ing on adventures.

Com­pact out­side and roomy in­side, its spa­cious and pro­tec­tive en­vi­ron­ment is em­bel­lished with the use of pre­mium ma­te­ri­als, high-qual­ity fin­ishes and handy stor­age com­part­ments.

The in­te­rior is un­mis­tak­ably Ital­ian in its style and comes with a choice of seven dif­fer­ent fin­ishes in a choice of fab­rics and colours, a wide range of seat set­tings and a roomy boot.

The com­pletely restyled cock­pit fea­tures a new in­stru­ment clus­ter, with graph­ics that are now even eas­ier to read, to­gether with a new steer­ing wheel which is con­toured to en­sure bet­ter po­si­tion­ing of the driver’s hands. The in­stru­ment panel main­tains its ar­range­ment into three cir­cu­lar el­e­ments, in fa­mil­iar 500 style, blend­ing vin­tage looks with mod­ern tech­nol­ogy.

The new 500X is the first Fiat model to fit the lat­est in­no­va­tive fam­ily of turbo en­gines, de­signed to strike the right bal­ance for cus­tomers be­tween the driv­ing per­for­mance and econ­omy. The use of many in­no­va­tive tech­ni­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics con­trib­ute to im­prov­ing per­for­mance and max­imis­ing driv­ing com­fort, such as di­rect fuel in­jec­tion to max­imise vol­u­met­ric ef­fi­ciency, plus en­sur­ing a faster re­sponse and swift ac­cel­er­a­tion.
