Fiat has provided a glimpse of its upcoming 500X crossover, revealing the new model to the international press in Italy this week.
Measuring around 4200mm long, the 500X will be the longest model in the 500 range and about 60mm longer than the 500L.
The 500X is expected to replace the Fiat Sedici, with a European sales-debut set for late next year.
While the Sedici is built alongside the Suzuki SX4 at Suzuki's factory in Hungary, the 500X is expected to be produced at Fiat's Mirafiori plant in Turin, Italy - the first of the current 500 family to be built in the brand's homeland.
The 500X will be built alongside a new Jeep version, with production to begin early in 2014.
Plans for a small Jeep crossover were confirmed last year by Fiat and Chrysler boss Sergio Marchionne, listing the B-SUV among three new SUVs planned to debut around 2013.
