It took some time for the long-expected Fiat 500X to be officially unveiled at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, long after its sibling Jeep Renegade to be also introduced at the event.
The Fiat 500X is finally here, with the model to complete the 500 lineup, standing side by side with the 500, 500C, 500L Trekking, as well as the 500L Living version.
The Fiat 500X is presently built at the renewed SATA factory in Melfi, Italy, coming with a lot of interesting styling cues, standing thus above the Jeep Renegade and the rest of the 500L family, in terms of design.
The Fiat 500X will come equipped with a wide choice of engines, a petrol as well as two diesel options, with additional powertrain to be added later on.
The 1.4-liter petrol Turbo MultiAir II petrol unit, sending the power to the front wheels, is developing 140 horsepower, when hooked to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
The diesel options first include the 1.6-liter MultiJet II, with 120 horsepower, also hooked to the 6-speed manual, while the higher 2.0-liter and 140 horsepower, is hooked to a 9-speed automatic transmission.
As mentioned above, the Fiat 500X will also sport other new units, like the 1.6-liter E-torQ with 110 horsepower, the 1.4-liter Turbo MultiAir II, developing 170 HP, as well as the larger 2.4-liter Tigershark, with a good 184 horsepower.
