Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

BAS­ING the styling of a crossover on a city car may sound crazy, but the Fiat 500’s unique retro de­sign works well on the 500X. Two ver­sions are of­fered, the City Look and Off-road Look, and you need the lat­ter if you want four-wheel drive.

As with other cars in its class, 4WD is only avail­able on top-spec en­gines, but be­cause the sys­tem was co-de­vel­oped with Jeep, it should give the 500X more off-road abil­ity than you’ll need.

Price range: £15,430-£26,550 Our pick: 1.4 Mul­ti­air 170hp AWD Auto Cross Plus (£24,910) En­gine: 1.4-litre 4cyl petrol, 168bhp Trans­mis­sion: 9-spd auto, per­ma­nent 4WD Top speed: 124mph Econ­omy: 42.2mpg CO2: 157g/km
