Fiat 500X revealed at Paris motor show


By on 5:34 AM

Italian Jeep Renegade splits the difference between 500 and 500L  Fiat unveiled the surprisingly stylish 500X at the Paris motor show on Thursday. The biggest little Fiat is a close cousin of the upcoming Jeep Renegade cute 'ute and offers a range of engines and three drivetrain options: front-wheel drive, “Traction Plus” front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.  “Traction Plus” is a halfway point between front- and all-wheel drive. It gives drivers more grip over loose surfaces, according to Fiat, but doesn’t cost as much, or use as much fuel as the all-wheel-drive system. If you do specify the AWD model, the 500X has a rear axle disconnect feature to help save fuel.  Engine choices for front-drive gasoline-powered models consist of a 110-hp, 1.6-liter four and a 140-hp and a 1.4-liter turbo four. All-wheel drive models (and probably American versions) will have a choice of a 170-hp, 1.4-liter turbo four and a 184-hp, 2.4-liter Tigershark four. Five- and six-speed manuals and six- and nine-speed automatic transmissions are offered.  A selection of diesel engines will also be offered in Europe, ranging from 95 to 140 hp.  2015 Jeep Renegade: Meet the new small Jeep Car News 2015 Jeep Renegade: Meet the new small Jeep  The 500X is 167 inches in length, 70.8 inches wide and 63 inches tall. It’s the same length as the 500L, a little bit wider and a little bit shorter in height. Cargo space measures 12.3 cubic feet behind the rear seats. It was designed at Centro Stile Fiat in Turin, Italy.  The Fiat comes in 12 colors and with eight different designs for the 16-, 17- and 18-inch wheels.
