Based on the smaller 500 “Cinquecento” subcompact, the 2018 Fiat 500X is stretched to include four doors, standard all-wheel drive and increased ground clearance. Built to rival other subcompact-crossover SUVs like the Mazda CX-3, Chevy Trax and Honda HR-V, the 500X looks good on paper, but in reality falls far short of the reliability and resale figures of said competitors.
New Features and Revisions
For 2018, the 500X gains as standard the UConnect 4 system that brings a 7-inch display, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Also standard this year is Bluetooth smartphone connectivity and a rearview camera.
