As a leading FIAT dealership, our team at FIAT of Fresno is always up to date on the latest happenings in the industry. Most recently, the 2019 FIAT 500X was debuted at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, and it’s truly a vision. Of the many new FIAT cars to come out in the upcoming year, the 2019 FIAT 500X crossover certainly hits the mark.
The 2019 model year brings with it two FIAT 500X models: Urban, which is the entry-level trim, and Cross. The latter is more off-road oriented, featuring skid plates.
For 2019, the FIAT 500X boasts numerous changes. The latest FIAT 500X comes standard with LED daytime running lights and LED rear clusters. Full-LED headlights are also offered. In the cabin, a color 3.5-inch information screen is equipped in the instrument panel, along with a more supportive steering wheel. Standard in every trim is Uconnect® infotainment, a 4.7-inch display with Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay™, SiriusXM® satellite radio, and available navigation.
Under the hood, the 2019 FIAT 500X sports a 1.3-liter inline-four engine that packs quite the punch with 177 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque. It comes paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Complementing its powertrain, the 2019 iteration now comes standard with all-wheel drive. Previously, front-wheel drive was the standard offering.
Drivers can expect a suite of modern safety features in the 2019 FIAT 500X, such as traffic sign recognition, intelligent speed assist, and lane assist, three automated features that help ensure your safety behind the wheel. Better yet, they all come standard.
While the 2019 FIAT 500X has yet to hit the market officially, our team is excited to welcome it to our dealership soon enough! Contact our FIAT dealers today to learn more about this latest model.
