Prices aren't anything to fret about, with Fiat pitching the 500X from around £15,500 for the entry-level 1.6-litre petrol engine. Trim levels open with the familiar 'Pop' and then step up through 'Pop Star' to 'Cross Plus'. The diesel range kicks off with a 1.6-litre Popstar for just over £20,000, but the cheapest AWD model is around £24,000.
Avoid entry-level trim and you get to experience the major change made to this revised model, the addition of the Fiat Group's latest Uconnect infotainment sstem, wth its 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen. This offers the 'Apple CarPlay' and 'Android Auto' smartphone-mirroring systems. 'Android Auto' offers access to Google Maps, with voice-guided navigation, real time traffic information and lane guidance, and Google Play Music, among other music services. Furthermore, customers can stay in touch with Uconnect LIVE services. Users who download the free Uconnect LIVE app from the App Store or Google Play Store to their smartphone can fully exploit the benefits of Uconnect LIVE, including music streaming with Deezer and TuneIn, news from Reuters, plus connected navigation with TomTom LIVE. In addition, they can stay in touch with friends via Facebook check-in and Twitter.
Standard equipment levels can be boosted with the addition of a number of packs, such as the Cold Weather pack, which comes with a heated steering wheel, heated front seats and heated wiper area. Or the City pack, which adds electrically folding and heated door mirrors and a rear parking camera.
