Background

The 500X takes on the task of bridging the gap between a stylish image and genuine off-road capability. Fiat 500 retro-styling cues and parts-sharing with its sister, the Jeep Renegade, would seem to take care of both. The model range reflects this split persona with more city vs all-terrain focused variants. For more information on the 500X, click on our further stories on the links below.

60sec road test

Thankfully, the Fiat 500 styling has translated far better over to the X crossover than the visually challenged 500L family bus. Better yet, there is genuine substance to match the style. Sure, CO2 figures and the claimed MPG are wide of this class’s mark, but a well-judged trade-off between comfort and cornering is much less offensive. Steer clear of the top-spec trim and tick the Pop Star box, and you’ll have yourself a fine all-rounder and with a higher quality interior to boot.
