The Fiat 500X has been refreshed, with updated looks, new technology and commercial strategies ensuring it remains among the top five best-selling models in its market segment across Europe. Among a raft of innovations, the sophisticated UconnectTM HD Live with high-resolution 7″ touchscreen will feature on the entire range, from the Pop Star trim level up.
The system offers Apple CarPlay, the smarter, safer way to use your iPhone in the car. UconnectTM 7” HD Live is also compatible with Android AutoTM . This completes the offer of these functions on the entire 500 families.
For the first time, the popular and tasteful Donatello Bronze and Alpi Matte Green colors – previously only available on S-Design models – will be available across the range. With new looks comes a new communication strategy, which by using new commercial names will emphasise the two different souls of Fiat 500X: the city personality, called “Urban Look” and declined in the Pop, Pop Star and Lounge trim levels, and the bolder crossover one, called “Cross Look”, with the Cross and City Cross versions. These changes are in step with those across the wider 500 families and first seen on the new 500L.
Finally, the range of personalization options has been further extended with the launch of new specific packs available on demand. According to the country, the packs bring together the accessories most suited to different customer needs, emphasizing the style, connectivity, comfort and safety of the Fiat 500X Model Year 2018, in addition to guaranteeing considerable saving compared to purchasing the accessories one by one.
