With the Fiat 500X, however, the newest model in the Fiat range, the manufacturer offers a vehicle that is visually more modern while remaining entirely unique in its design. The 500X is the third model in the Fiat range. Unveiled this year, it is a sub-compact SUV that will be mandated to tackle a growing segment.
We will see a lot of sub-compact SUV on Quebec roads by next year. That was to be entirely expected given that these vehicles offer a combination of interior space, urban agility, fuel economy and driving pleasure at a reasonable price. That is also exactly what you get with the new Fiat 500X 2016.
What is interesting is that the 500X offers several engine choices, a reality that is not given to all models in the segment. This will give consumers more choice and more opportunities to ensure that the needs of everyone are met. In addition, the Fiat 500X offers two types of drivetrains (all-wheel and front-wheel) that allow it to meet the expectations of a diverse group of buyers.
The base engine of the Fiat 500X is a four-cylinder turbocharged 1.4-liter offering 160 horsepower. Available only on FWD models, it is available in Pop, Sport and Trekking models. It is also possible to opt for a four-cylinder, 2.4-liter engine that delivers 180 horsepower. The latter can be combined with all-wheel drive and is available in Lounge and Trekking Plus versions.
A nine-speed automatic transmission is optional. The latter is notably found in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and offers more speeds than the vast majority of cars on the market, regardless of the segment. Having that many speeds reduces fuel consumption significantly while providing a smoother ride. A six-speed manual transmission is standard.
Offering a fun ride and space for the whole family, the Fiat 500X also offers impressive fuel economy, regardless of the model. To learn more about the 2016 Fiat 500X, contact us today at LaSalle Fiat Alfa Romeo!
