At Johnsons Fiat, we were excited to hear about the latest addition to the iconic Fiat 500 range: the 500X Sport. Ahead of its expected release later this month, Fiat has announced the on-the-road prices for this punchy crossover, which start from £22,500.
Boasting a new sporty style and performance upgrades, this
new take on the Fiat bestseller will be a sure-fire hit with those who have a
penchant for agile handling, zero-compromise performance and, of course,
eye-catching Italian flair. With a sublime combination of a 13mm reduction in
ride height, tuned suspension settings, steering system calibration to return
more reactive feedback to the driver, and optional 19-inch wheels with high-performance
tyres, the 500X Sport offers pure driving pleasure, wherever you take it.
Its dynamic profile features a number of sporty styling
cues, including a new ‘Seduzione Red’ body colour, body coloured side skirts
and wheel arches, a diffuser-style rear bumper, dual chrome exhaust and the
exclusive ‘SPORT’ badge on the fender.
Lively and adventurous, the new 500X Sport comes with a choice of two
petrol engines, a 1.0-litre with 120HP and six-speed manual gearbox, and
a 1.3-litre FireFly Turbo with 150HP and six-speed DCT dual-clutch
automatic transmission. The latter also uses Frequency Selective Damping
(FSD) on the front and rear suspension and adjusted shock absorbers to
offer greater road holding without compromising comfort.
This sporty feel continues once you step inside, with an array of unique touches, including an aluminium gear knob, a techno-leather sports steering wheel with Alcantara inserts, red highlights throughout and a grey ‘500’ logo on the seats. You also have a whole host of active driving assistance technologies at your fingertips, including Traffic Sign Recognition and Lane Assist, plus infotainment provided by Fiat’s intuitive Uconnect system.
This striking model is set to storm onto the crossover scene by the end of October – and we can’t wait to get behind the wheel. If you want to find out more about this exciting new release, contact your local Johnsons Fiat today!
