While Fiat’s tiny 500 has proved successful in Australia, it’s other offerings haven’t enjoyed the same success. Now, hoping to spread the 500’s fortunes across its range, Fiat is introducing the retro-inspired 500X SUV.

While the 500X falls into the compact SUV category, it takes the dimensions of the 500 to a new level, packing in five doors and five seats in the process.

The model range incorporates four trim-levels, split evenly between front and all-wheel-drive, all powered by a 1.4 litre four-cylinder turbo engine, but in two different states of tune.

Unlike the 500 however, the 500X is no budget battler, with pricing starting at $28,000 for the sole manual model, to which an automatic adds $2000, at the top of the range, $39,000 nets you the flagship model.

 

Features

Priced at a premium for the segment, the 500X lessens the pain with a full features list. The four models on offer include Pop and Pop Star, both front-wheel-drive, spreading to Lounge and top-spec Cross Plus, teamed with all-wheel-drive.

Pop includes 16-inch alloy wheels, a 5.0-inch touchscreen Uconnect infotainment system, rear park sensors, cruise control, a leather-clad steering wheel, cooled glovebox, heated exterior mirrors, electric park brake, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and six-speaker audio.

Stepping into the Pop Star adds 17-inch alloy wheels, auto lights and wipers, front fog-lights, power folding mirrors, steering wheel paddle-shifters, powered lumbar support for the driver’s seat, a larger 6.5 inch touchscreen including satellite navigation, keyless entry and start, a rear view camera and blind spot monitoring.

Moving up to the Lounge adds dual-zone climate control, automatic high beam, privacy glass, eight-speaker Beats audio, 18-inch alloy wheels, plus collision warning and lane departure warning.

Finally the Cross Plus adds more rugged styling cues at the front and rear, matte chrome highlights, roof rails, Xenon headlights, roof-racks, and 18-inch wheels in a unique design.

 

Powertrain

Both Pop and Pop Star share the same 1.4 litre four-cylinder turbo engine producing 103kW and 230Nm, driving the front wheels only. Pop is available with either a six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch automatic, while Pop Star comes paired with the automatic only.

Lounge and Cross Plus feature a higher output 1.4 litre engine that produces 125kW and 250Nm, matched to a nine-speed automatic transmission and AWD.

Models from Pop Star up also come with a ‘mood selector’ dial to flick between Auto, Sport and All-Weather driving modes, altering the engine, brakes, steering, and transmission to suit.

Cross Plus replaces All Weater with Traction mode, specially calibrated to maximise low-speed traction on off-road surfaces.

 

Pricing

Optional equipment includes an Advanced Tech Pack for Pop Star that includes forward collision warning and lane departure warning for $1000, while Pop Star, Lounge and Cross Plus can be optioned with a dual-pane sunroof for $2000, and leather seat trim including powered front seat adjustment for $2500

Pop manual $28,000
Pop automatic $30,000
Pop Star automatic $33,000
Lounge automatic $38,000
Cross Plus automatic $39,000

NOTE: Pricing does not include on-road costs.
