2016 FIAT 500X
The 2016 FIAT 500X is truly one of kind for the FIAT line. Not only is it the first crossover SUV introduced to the American market, it is also the first to offer all-wheel drive. The FIAT 500X offers a commanding performance on any road. The 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine is capable of delivering 180 horsepower, 175 lb-ft. of torque and is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to the 500X all-wheel drive its ready for action. AWD will engage automatically for a more responsive performance and greater traction on difficult terrains, while also disengaging for increased efficiency. Ignite the dynamic selector traction control system in either auto, sport or traction+ mode to optimize the 500X for maximum performance. So while the obvious aspect of the 500X is its larger size, the real unique feature is how just how capable it is.
The FIAT 500X comes in 5 trim levels so you are bound to find a 500X that matches your personal style. The first three levels fall under the "Street Series" and are designed to cruise urban roads with grace. For a more athletic feel FIAT created two trims under the "Trekking Series" whose appearance matches the 4WD capability that was loaded into the 500X. Each trim level carries all the features from the previous levels model so if you like your vehicle packed with extras we recommend the Trekking Plus trim. The Trekking Plus has the most X factor when it comes to the 500X models. It is lined with premium leather, a stone finish instrument panel, high tech safety and convenience features, and so much more. For even more luxury the Trekking Plus can be fitted with a dual-pane power sunroof, BeatsAudio? premium sound system and nine speakers.
