Review the 2016 500X from Fiat Dealer in Scottsdale
Introduced for the new model year, the 2016 Fiat 500X is one of the newest entries in the subcompact crossover segment. It's affordable, available with several safety features and offers more interior space than the popular Fiat 500L. When it comes to appearance, the 500X looks like an oversized 500; however, it features more cargo space than the 500 and is much more appealing inside and out. Available in five trims: Pop, Easy, Trekking, Lounge and Trekking Plus, the model is on sale now and you can learn more about it in our 2016 Fiat 500X review below.
Seating five passengers comfortably, the 2016 Fiat 500X in Scottsdale is one of the top new subcompact crossovers on the market. It offers everything from 17-inch alloy wheels, keyless ignition and automatic headlights to Bluetooth connectivity, heated front seats and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Inside the vehicle, soft-touch surfaces and premium materials adorn the cabin, giving the subcompact an attractive, upscale appearance. A Uconnect 6.5 system can also be installed inside the vehicle, allowing drivers to access internet radio and yelp local search through their smartphone, input directions in the system's navigation, send and receive texts, and obtain a Wi-Fi hotspot for an extra fee.
Delivering 180 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque, a 2.4L four-cylinder engine drives the 2016 Fiat 500X in Scottsdale. A nine-speed automatic transmission is matched with the engine and can be outfitted on either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive models. With a front-wheel drive configuration, the 500X delivers an EPA-estimated 25 mpg combined, 22 city and 31 highway, while all-wheel drive variants produce 24 mpg combined, 21 city and 30 highway. The Fiat 500X Pop model gets a turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder instead of the 2.4L four, which generates 160 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque, is standard with a six-speed manual transmission and comes solely in front-wheel drive.
