Fiat adds another product which is defined by genuine Italian design and excellent driving dynamics. The all-new 2016 Fiat 500X comes with an advanced all-wheel-drive system, unmatched functionality, complete safety, technological features and absolute comfort.

In the United States, the Fiat 500X arrives with the fuel-efficient 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine combined with a six-speed manual transmission. The engine has an output of 160 hp and 184 lb.-ft. of peak torque. The 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir2 engine generates 180 hp and 175 lb.-ft. of torque. This time around, it is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission on all-wheel-drive and front-wheel-drive models.

There is a disconnecting rear axle which is used to reduce the parasitic loss when all-wheel-drive capability is not really needed. This results in much better fuel efficiency. The Dynamic Selector system offers the driver three different modes (Auto, Sport and Traction +) to choose from.

Furthermore, the 2016 Fiat 500X is equipped with up to 70 safety and security components. They are comprised of: Forward Collision Warning-Plus, LaneSense Departure Warning-Plus, Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection. Electronic stability control (ESC) with Hill-start Assist and electronic roll mitigation and seven air bags are included on all models.

The Fiat 500X is also available with features such as Uconnect 6.5 radio with a 6.5-inch high-resolution touchscreen and navigation, Bluetooth streaming audio, Uconnect Access Via Mobile, a 3.5-inch color thin-film transistor (TFT) cluster display, Keyless Enter-N-Go, and heated front seats and steering wheel.

The new Fiat's baby features five trim levels: Pop, Easy, Lounge, and for a more edgy look, Trekking and Trekking Plus. The Trekking and Trekking Plus versions is available in one-of-a-kind front and rear fascia designs, and satin silver elements which adorn the appearance of the car.

The all-new Fiat 500X will arrive in FIAT studios in North America in the first half of 2015. It will go on sale in more than 100 countries around the world.
