2016 FIAT 500X Crossover - Columbus, OH

A first for the FIAT portfolio of offerings: an advanced All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) system. Available on most 500X models, AWD adds peace of mind on any drive.  With the FIAT® 500X Trekking Plus, you can take full advantage of new capabilities and offerings available. Athletic front and rear cladding and 18-inch wheels signal the kind of performance 180 horsepower and a cutting-edge, nine-speed automatic transmission can produce. 

This fully electronic transmission features on-the-fly shift-map changing, along with a unique set of four overdrive ratios that improve highway fuel efficiency and reduce overall noise, vibration, and harshness levels. Plus, the FIAT Dynamic Selector puts three customized driving modes at your fingertips. All told, you’re in for a responsive, smooth, and fuel-efficient drive.

The available, technologically advanced FIAT 500X AWD system works through a variable wet clutch located in the rear drive module. This clutch knows and supplies the right amount of torque for whatever the weather, roads, or driver throws at it, be it slippery conditions or an aggressive launch. The system requires no input from the driver—all actions (including AWD activation) are intelligently, seamlessly engaged based on conditions and drive style. And while the system boats leading traction management advances, it also works to improve dynamic handling.

AWD-Equipped Vehicles:
1 .      Approach Angle: 21.0°
2 .      Breakover Angle: 18.6°
3 .      Departure Angle: 24.1°

4 .      Ground Clearance: 7.05’’

Five trim lines:

This 500X is all about accessibility. With its “go anywhere, anytime” spirit, the 500X Pop will not only reflect popular culture, it will help inspire it.

Of all the 500X models, Easy exudes that “sit back, I’ve got this” persona—and no wonder, with the added power and capabilities of its 2.4-liter 1-4 Tigershark® MultiAir®2 engine and 9-speed automatic transmission, the FIAT® Dynamic Selector, Uconnect 5.0 hands-free⁷ radio with voice recognition, and premium wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

Why not, when, in addition to Easy features, it offers unique Lounge cloth seats, heated front seats with eight-way power driver swat with four-way power lumbar,  Uconnect 6.5N with Navigation, eight speakers, ParkView® Rear Back-Up Camera² and interior ambient lighting.

The brawny good looks of the 50X Trekking will give you the nudge you need to make good on those dreams of adventure.

Also includes passive entry with Keyless Enter n’Go and remote start.
