“Designed and built in Italy, our fun-to-drive Fiat 500X is the only vehicle in its class to deliver a standard turbocharged engine, all-wheel drive and 30 miles per gallon,” said Matt Davis, Head of FIAT – North America. “For 2021, the 500X adds the Sport Value Package to the aggressive Sport trim that debuted last year, bringing more bang for the buck to our dynamic crossover.”
Penned at Centro Stile in Turin, Italy, the 500X leverages the character and iconic features of the Fiat 500 subcompact into a larger, four-door crossover package. Exterior design elements, such as double headlamps, a trapezoidal nose and rounded clamshell hood, pay homage to the original Cinquecento, while colored dashboard inserts and a circular cluster display give the interior standout style.
For 2021 (late availability), Fiat 500X Pop and Trekking models receive new dashboard inserts — matte blue techno finish for Pop, matte grey finish for Trekking — as well as new seat fabric.
Crafted in Italy at Fiat Automobiles’ Melfi assembly plant, the 2021 Fiat 500X arrives at North American Fiat studios in the fourth quarter of 2020.
