Used Fiat 500X for sale
The Fiat 500X is a subcompact crossover SUV that combines the practicality of an SUV, with the iconic styling of the Fiat brand. Due to its aesthetics, you'll get a car that looks similar to, but is larger than, the Fiat 500, but not quite as large as the 500L.
But its cute looks aren't its only strong suit. The 500X comes with a range of great features that make it a contender in the competitive crossover SUV class, such as:
- A choice of efficient engines
- Affordable to run
- Good range of available equipment
Discover the benefits of the Fiat 500X in more detail below.
Engines and Driving Experience
Following its facelift in 2018, the 500X now comes with a simplified petrol-only engine range:
- 1.0-litre FireFly: Manual-only, 118bhp and an average of 43.5mpg.
- 1.3-litre FireFly: Standard automatic gearbox, 148bhp and an average of 42.2mpg.
A number of other engine variants are available within the used car market, such as a 1.6-litre E-torQ petrol and a number of diesel engines that can return impressive fuel economy figures, making the diesels more suitable if regularly travelling long distances. However, it's worth bearing in mind that you'll need to get a pre-facelift variant if you opt for any of the discontinued engines.
The driving experience within the 500X is nicely balanced. It's neither really sporty, nor uber-comfortable, but what it does offer is a nice mix of the two for an interesting everyday drive.
Practicality and Running Costs
Coming with five doors as standard, the 500X is essentially an enlarged hatchback, giving it its crossover SUV title. Ideal for young families, the 500X is easy to climb in and out of and offers respectable amounts of head and legroom around the cabin. Although passengers that are over 6-foot tall may find it cosier in the rear of the car.
ISOFIX mounting points also reside on either side of the rear bench, so fitting a child seat is less hassle. Boot space is decent, offering 350 litres as standard, increasing to 1,000 litres when folding down the rear 60/40 split seats. There's also a moveable boot floor, which can be set in two different places, increasing overall versatility.
It's also suitable for families in the area of running costs too. Insurance is cheap, ranging between group 5 and 16 (out of 50) dependent upon specification. Servicing and maintenance requirements can also be taken out at your local Evans Halshaw dealership.
Interior, Technology and Safety
When stepping inside the 500X, you'll be greeted with a similar interior to that within the smaller 500. Body-coloured plastics are spread throughout the cabin to give a more cheerful and personalised feel, with nicely curves across the dashboard providing even more character.
A range of handy technology can also be found across the 500X range, with features such as a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system and smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) coming as standard. Higher specification examples unlock further bits of kit, such as satellite navigation and heated seats.
Fiat didn't cut corners when it came to safety equipment, either. With a good range on offer, the 500X provides reassurance for you and your family whilst out on the road thanks to gadgets such as:
- Blind spot warning
- Adaptive cruise control
- Parking sensors and camera
- City brake control (autonomous emergency braking)
Is the Fiat 500X right for me?
The 500X takes the joyful character of the Fiat brand and merges it into a practical crossover SUV that is good all round.
However, the 500X is challenging some of the best crossover SUVs within a highly-competitive field. Rivals such as the SEAT Ateca and Ford Puma offer more dynamic driving experiences. The BMW X2 is also a good option if you're after something more luxurious, whilst the Skoda Karoq is the go-to choice for maximum practicality.
Nonetheless, the 500X is good value for money and is still worth considering when searching for a used car.
