The Fiat 500X, the original Italian crossover, has been updated inside and out with new
looks and technology to satisfy a driver's every needs. It's available with a choice of three
trim levels, Urban, City Cross and Cross, three petrol engines, including two brand new
more efficient turbo petrol engines, and now comes with a host of safety assistance
systems as standard across the range. The new Fiat 500X is on sale now priced from
£16,995 OTR.

Refreshed functionality and more 500 personality

The new Fiat 500X has evolved to become even more modern and functional as it introduces
new comfort and safety features, while adding even more 500 family style.

New daylight running lights and LED rear light clusters are standard across the range, bring
it even closer to the look of the rest of the 500 family. Standard on the Cross Plus, and optionally
available on other trims, are the new LED headlights, made in partnership with Magneti Marelli.
The LED daytime running lights give the front of the new Fiat 500X a clear, distinctive visual identity,
while at the rear LED light clusters make the car even more recognisable, as well as increasing its
visibility and safety on the road. As well as adding unmistakable 500 style, the LED headlights offer
more powerful lighting, improving visibility, consume five times less energy than traditional
halogens and reduce eye fatigue thanks to daylight-like illumination and covering a wider area. At a
speed of 56mph obstacles can be spotted up to four seconds sooner - which is a distance of 100m -than
with the standard halogen units.

Reasserting their distinct identities, the new exterior design highlights the two personalities of the
model - the new Urban look features an all-new front and rear bumper design to make tackling city traffic
chic, while the new Cross look adds new-look protective skid plates for taking on adventures.

Compact outside and roomy inside, its spacious and protective environment is embellished with the use
of premium materials, high-quality finishes and handy storage compartments. The comfortable interior is
unmistakably Italian in its style, and comes with a choice of seven different finishes in a choice of fabrics
and colours, a wide range of seat settings and a roomy boot. The completely restyled cockpit features a new
instrument cluster, with graphics that are now even easier to read, together with a new steering wheel which
is contoured to ensure better positioning of the driver's hands, provides perfect grip in Techno-leather upholstery
and includes integrated radio controls. The instrument panel maintains its arrangement into three circular
elements, in familiar 500 style, blending vintage looks with modern technology. Two analogue dials with
speedometer and tachometers are arranged on the sides, while the 3.5-inch TFT display in the middle provides
key information to the driver.

Next-generation petrol engines

The new Fiat 500X is the first Fiat model to fit the latest innovative family of turbo engines, designed to strike
the right balance for customers between the driving performance and economy. Euro 6D compliant and fitted
with Gasoline Particle Filter (GPF), the new turbo engines are the result of over 75,000 hours of virtual tests,
60,000 hours of real-life off-vehicle tests and 5 million kilometres clocked up on roads worldwide to confirm
their robustness and reliability.

Developed on a modular structure with 0.33 litre cylinder unit, the new front-wheel drive turbo petrol engine
line-up includes a three-cylinder 1.0-litre powerplant that delivers 120hp and 190Nm of torque and is paired
with a six-speed manual transmission, as well as a four-cylinder 1.3-litre engine with 150hp and 270Nm of
torque, in this case combined with six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission (DCT).

Their architecture guarantees efficiency, modularity, a high degree of component and production process
standardisation, flexibility and openness to future evolutions. The new engines are made entirely from
aluminium alloy, ensuring unbeatable lightness (the three-cylinder version weighs just 93kg), while the
cylinder block, developed in partnership with Teksid, is in high-pressure die-cast aluminium alloy,
with a bedplate architecture for the best combination of ride, weight and structural performance.

The use of many innovative technical characteristics contribute to improving performance and
maximising driving comfort, such as direct fuel injection to maximise volumetric efficiency
and the low inertia turbocharger controlled by an electrically operated wastegate actuator
which, combined with a supercharger module water-cooled directly in the intake manifold,
ensures a faster response and swift acceleration. The new turbo engines also optimise
combustion efficiency through continual control of intake valve opening and timing. The
specific intake and exhaust cam profiles improve low load efficiency by recycling exhaust
gas through advance opening of the intake valves. When higher power is required, the
engine reduces the real compression ratio by delaying valve closure, controlling knock and
substantially improving fuel efficiency, even at the highest loads.

The range of petrol engines in the new Fiat 500X is completed by the entry level 110hp
1.6 E-Torq, combined with manual transmission and front-wheel drive, which is now
upgraded to meet the Euro 6D pollution reduction standard and now features Start &
Stop as standard.

Peace of mind with the most innovative driving assist systems

In addition to style, rich contents and remarkable comfort, the new Fiat 500X offers customers
a safe and connected driving experience thanks to the inclusion of safety assistance systems
and the latest infotainment technology. Traffic Sign Recognition, Speed Advisor and Lane Assist
are now offered as standard on all versions of the new Fiat 500X. In addition Blind Spot Alert,
Adaptive Cruise Control and City Brake Control can be optionally specified.

The new Traffic Sign Recognition system uses a camera mounted on the inside of the windscreen
to read the speed limits on road signs along the journey. The data is then sent, in real time,
to the instrument cluster display where it alerts the driver to the limits to be complied with.
Speed Advisor works with the Speed Limiter, when activated, to adapt the speed of the car
to the speed limit detected by the Traffic Sign Recognition system. It identifies the current
speed limit and, at the click of a button, the Speed Advisor reduces the car's speed.

Lane Assist uses the optical sensor in the camera to identify the position of the car in relation
to the lane markings on the road surface. If the car strays out of the lane, without the driver
having indicated in that direction, the system triggers a visual alarm and applies additional
torque to the steering wheel to counteract the unintended lane change. Lane Assist operates
at speeds between 37mph and 112mph and can be activated by the driver.

A number of optional safety features are also available:

Adaptive Cruise Control can be activated for automatic reduction of the set speed when the
car is approaching the vehicle ahead in the same lane, or when another vehicle moves into
the same lane. It returns to the set speed when the vehicle in front accelerates or moves to
another lane and operates from a speed of 18mph.

The City Brake Control function on the new Fiat 500X can recognise obstacles in the path of
the car and brake automatically if the driver does not take action to prevent a collision.

The Blind Spot Alert use radar sensors to assist drivers during lane changes and when
overtaking or being overtaken by vehicles out of their angle of vision. The system warns
the driver of vehicles in blind spots via illuminating icons on the door mirrors and a beep,
or when reversing out of a parking space it identifies vehicles arriving from either side.

State-of-the-art connectivity as standard

Making the smartest solutions, which simplify and improve life at the wheel, affordable for
all, is at the heart of the Fiat brand's mission. With this in mind, all versions of the new Fiat
500X come with the UconnectTM 7-inch HD LIVE touchscreen system, complete with Apple
CarPlay integration and Android AutoTM compatibility as standard.

This next-generation UconnectTM system comes complete with high-resolution 7-inch
touchscreen, Bluetooth hands-free interface, audio streaming, text reader and voice recognition
function, Aux and USB ports with iPod integration and controls on the steering wheel, all as
standard. By downloading the free UconnectTM LIVE app from the App Store or Google Play
Store, drivers can fully exploit the benefits of UconnectTM LIVE, which includes music streaming
with Deezer and TuneIn, news from Reuters, connected navigation with TomTom LIVE and
they can keep in touch with friends via Facebook Check-in and Twitter. Eco:Drive and my:Car
also allow drivers to monitor their driving style to improve the economy and running costs of
their car. The system can be further enhanced with an optional Parkview rear parking camera
and new TomTom 3D integrated navigation system.

The integration of Apple CarPlay and Android AutoTM offers the smartest and safest way to
use the functions of a phone while driving. Apple CarPlay shows road directions optimised
according to traffic conditions and it can be used to make phone calls, send and receive messages
and play music while remaining focused on the road. Apple CarPlay also works with other apps on
your iPhone, such as like your favourite audio, messaging, and voice apps. CarPlay features Siri
voice control and is specially designed for driving scenarios. The system is compatible with Android
AutoTM, as well, to continue the Android experience in the car, by "projecting" apps and services
of the central display, and is designed to make retrieving information while driving easy and safe.
The driver can use Google MapsTM to obtain route guidance and easily access music, multimedia
contents and their favourite messaging apps. Easy, immediate interaction with devices guarantees
the convenience of maintaining the same operating system even in the car, for constantly
connected and safe driving. When you connect your Android smartphone to the vehicle or the
compatible stereo system, the Android Auto apps appear on the vehicle's display. To learn more
