The compact crossovers are very popular around the world these years and the new 2017 Fiat 500X will be the most likely well-selling model in the U.S. and Europe. As we know, the 500 model from Fiat debuted a few years ago, and now we can expect the 500X model for 2017. The brand new 2017 Fiat 500X will provide all the style of the iconic 500 model with the surefootedness and practicality of an all-wheel drive sports utility vehicle. Its exterior design is very stylish while the interior is very elegant. The engines are so efficient, and all of that make this model perfect choice for all people.
2017 Fiat 500X – Stylish Design:
As we already wrote, the exterior design of the recent 2017 Fiat 500X will be very attractive and stylish. There is going to be some updates from the outside compared to the regular 500 model. This one will be definitely more stylish. The front side is very appealing and here we can see elegantly designed headlights. We can anticipate twin headlamps and that looks pretty cool. The grille is very simple, if we actually can call it grill. One chrome horizontal slat with the Fiat logo in the middle. Under the grille, we can see stylish front bumper fitted with rectangular fog lights and with air vents. All the lights on the vehicle will use the newest generation of LED technology.
Compared to the standard 500 model, this one, in general, has a much more rugged appearance. The hood will be the same as in the regular model. At the sides, we can expect aluminum wheels but the exact size is not known yet.
The interior design of the 2017 Fiat 500X is very nice. Everything inside is neat and clean while the gauges and controls are big and round. The cabin is very comfortable and spacious. All seats inside will have cloth as standard upholstery, while the leather upholstery will be optional. However, compared to its rival, the HR-V model from Honda, this model has much less space inside. We can also expect LCD screen on the dashboard. Also, the infotainment system will be better than in the regular 500 model. The cargo space will be 50.8 cubic feet, which is average for this class.
2017 Fiat 500X – TurboCharged Engine:
The new Fiat 500X will be powered by a turbocharged 1.4-liter inline-4 that will be capable of generating up to 160 horsepower and 184 foot-pounds of torque. This engine will be mated to a 6-speed manual transmission system. The second engine option will be 2.4-liter inline-4 that will be capable of producing up to 20 horses more than the first engine but on the other hand 9 foot-pounds of torque less. The second engine will be mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission system. This system gets negative reviews in the past, but FCA has worked hard to retune it.
2017 Fiat 500X – Release Date and MSRP:
The release date of the newly 2017 Fiat 500X will be at the beginning of next year, probably in February. This model will have a starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price of around $20.000.
