The third model in Fiat’s growing range of retro-styled ‘500’ models, the new 500X, has been spied testing in Europe this week.

Joining the iconic 500 and the larger new 500L, the 500X will enter the hugely competitive compact SUV market sometime in 2015.

We’ll likely to see the new model revealed before then however, and reports out of Europe suggest October’s Paris Motor Show will be the place.

The 500X’s styling is still to be uncovered, although an early preview look back in 2012 revealed what will likely be the final look of the new crossover.

Evolving the look of both the 500 and 500L, the new 500X will get four round lights at the front and, unlike its stablemates, a conventional high-mounted grille design.

Underneath, the 500X will share its underpinnings with the new Jeep Renegade crossover, revealed earlier this year.

Expect the 500X to also adopt the Renegade’s powertrains, meaning an 81kW/152Nm 1.6 litre unit, a 125kW/250Nm 1.4 MultiAir 2 and the larger 137kW/236Nm 2.4 litre MultiAir 2 'Tigershark' mill.

European models will likely also get a 2.0 litre diesel option. Transmissions should include a six-speed manual and ZF’s nine-speed auto (also featured in the Dodge Dart and Fiat Viaggio sedans).

In Jeep Renegade form, the package also includes a front-wheel-drive option and two 4x4 systems, with one of those developed specifically for a more offroad-focused application.

It remains to be seen if the 500X - which is likely to star mostly in urban environments - will get all three of those configurations.

Watch for more details to surface in the coming months.
