KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Matt Degen


The 2017 Fiat 500X blends chic Italian design with all-wheel-drive capability and the higher ride height and cargo versatility of a small SUV. Like its rivals the Honda HR-V, Chevrolet Trax, Mazda CX-3 and its Jeep cousin the Renegade, the Fiat 500X is part of a burgeoning group of subcompact-crossover SUVs. Beyond its stylish design inside and out, the 500X also features a host of safety features that can prevent an accident and monitor the vehicle's blind spots. The 500X's sub-$21,000 starting price is also appealing, but this Fiat crossover SUV suffers from a languid 9-speed automatic transmission, poor resale value and a ride quality that is neither as athletic as a CX-3, nor as comfortable as a Trax.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you love the notion of driving a Fiat but need something bigger than the 500 and can't stomach the looks of the 500L, the 500X could be the little Italian for you. The only Fiat available with all-wheel drive, it can also appeal to those in cold-weather states.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Though just a year old, the 500X already has chinks in its armor. The Honda HR-V is more versatile, more efficient, roomier, drives better and has more cargo capacity. The Jeep Renegade is better suited for off-roading, and the Mazda CX-3 handily outshines the Fiat in handling and fuel economy.

What's New for 2017

The Fiat 500X debuted only last year, but Fiat is already simplifying the lineup, cutting trim options to just three: Pop, Trekking and Lounge. A reshuffling of package options aims for more personalization among the lineup.

Driving It Driving Impressions

We had high hopes for the Fiat 500X, thinking it might be a less expensive alternative to the scrappy Mini Countryman. Unfortunately, unlike the Mini or even a Mazda, the 500X isn't very satisfying. It feels nervous and is disappointing compared to the Honda HR-V, Chevy Trax, Mazda CX-3 and its own cousin the Jeep Renegade. It bounces over modest road imperfections, though we do give it credit for absorbing freeway expansion joints. While some of our testers didn't mind the Fiat's electrically assisted steering, others thought it felt unnatural. One of our biggest gripes is with the 9-speed automatic transmission (a 6-speed manual is available only on base versions with the 1.4-liter engine). While power output is decent from the 2.4-liter, the automatic transmission just doesn't use it as well as it could with its slow reactions and occasional hard shifts. The Fiat 500X scores some points for its quiet cabin.

Favorite Features

DYNAMIC SELECTOR
While many vehicles now offer adjustable drive modes, the Dynamic Selector in the new 500X surprised us not just by offering notable differences between the modes, but by being available in almost every model, and in front- and all-wheel drive.

ADVANCED SAFETY SYSTEMS
It's gratifying to see how quickly things like lane-keeping assist and collision-mitigation systems have trickled from luxury cars to mainstream vehicles like the 500X. Everyone deserves safety, and these optional systems, along with blind-spot detection, expand that safety envelope for Fiat 500X buyers.
