If you live in the United States, you can now configure the all-new 2016 Fiat 500X online. FiatUSA.com has added the small utility vehicle to their growing online lineup with a few packages and trims to choose from. The 500X is a small crossover built at the Melfi plant in Italy.
The base-model 2016 Fiat 500X Pop starts at $20,000 and comes with a 1.4-L MultiAir® Turbo Engine with six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive only. Unlike its platform cousin the 2015 Jeep Renegade, the 2016 Fiat 500X does not have an option that connects the 1.4-liter/six-speed manual combination to all-wheel drive (AWD). Also as standard equipment on the Pop, you get 16-inch steel wheels and a Uconnect® 3.0 System with AM/FM Radio and USB/Auxiliary Media Hub.
Additional standard features include a 3.5-Inch Personalized Driver Information Cluster Display, deep-tinted glass, Dynamic Selector™ Traction Control System with three selectable modes (Auto, Sport, Traction), chrome door handles, unique grille insert, side and rear accents.
Adding a different engine and transmission, the 2016 Fiat 500X Easy starts at $22,300 and comes with a 2.4-L Tigershark® MultiAir® Engine and nine-speed automatic transmission. The 2015 Fiat 500X Easy also comes with 17-Inch aluminum wheels, an upgraded Uconnect® 5.0 System with a 5-Inch Touchscreen, AM/FM Radio, voice command and Bluetooth®+, eco:Drive®, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio+, Bluetooth streaming audio and six speakers.
Loaded with the aforementioned features, a slight price bump allows you to get the 2016 Fiat 500X Trekking which starts at $23,100. It adds satin chrome door handles, unique grille insert, side and rear accents and “rugged looking” cloth seats.
The 2016 Fiat 500X Lounge moves the base price to $24,850 and includes chrome door handles, unique grille insert, side and rear accents, Keyless Enter ‘n Go™ with Remote Vehicle Start+ and Bi-functional Halogen projector headlamps.
Sitting at the very top of the line, the 2016 Fiat 500X Trekking Plus starts at $27,100 and includes leather-trimmed seating, satin chrome door handles, unique grille insert, wheel-arch moldings, and unique side and rear accents.
The AWD option costs $1,900 for each model (except for the FWD-only 2016 Fiat 500X Pop).
“The Fiat 500X is the next step of FIAT expansion in the North American market,” said Jason Stoicevich, Head of FIAT Brand North America, FCA US LLC. “Personalization is a big part of who we are as a brand, so we are giving our customers a chance to jump-start the process and customize a Fiat 500X that fits their own needs and personality. Also, FIAT fans can now visit a studio to reserve a vehicle and be one of the first to own the Italian-made Fiat 500X.”
