If you’ve always loved the funky styling of the Fiat 500, and who doesn’t, but you need more space, then this is the car for you.
This the Fiat 500X – the only Italian entrant into one of Australia’s most crowded vehicle segments. And just like its Fiat 500 baby brother, the X will definitely stand out from the crowd.
We’ve come somewhere a little bit special to test it. We’re in Indian Wells - playground for LA’s well-heeled set and, according to Fiat, the perfect place to test the 500X.
If you’re familiar with the Fiat 500, you’ll feel instantly at home inside. There are so many cinquecento highlights here, from the body-coloured dash insert, the circular design elements, the 500 badge on the gear boot, and these stylish seats. Everywhere you look, there’s just something a little bit special about this car.
While it’s built on the same purpose-designed platform as the Jeep Renegade, the 500X couldn’t be a more different proposition. While the Jeep is designed for off-road adventures, Fiat tells us the 500X is more at home in the city, more likely to be used for luxurious weekend trips away.
