2020 Fiat 500X Sport revealed, not coming to Australia

The Fiat 500X Sport has been unveiled, but it won't be making the long journey to Australia. In Europe, the 500X will be available with two petrol engines: a 88kW 1.0-litre with a six-speed manual, and a 110kW 1.3-litre Firefly mill with a six-speed dual-clutch transmission. To justify its name, the new 500X variant comes with retuned suspension that's 13mm lower, 18-inch alloy wheels, and revised steering calibration.
