Fiat 500X Coming Soon

The Fiat 500X, intended to be a more rugged-looking version of the 500L Mini-MPV, was first shown earlier this month in a leaked image.

A previous teaser video of the Fiat 500X revealed very little other than an outline, but it is clear from the new one that the 500X will be less boxy and more rounded than the 500L, with a longer bonnet and distinctive body cladding.

Details so far are scarce, but we know the 500X will be built on a platform in tandem with the new Jeep Renegade. We expect two and four-wheel drive to be offered, although off-road ability will be considered more in the Jeep.

Following the launch at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, the 500X will be built at Fiat's plant in Melfi, Italy. We expect it to be on sale around March of 2015. Prices and further details will be revealed in Paris in early October.
