Where is the FIAT 500X Crossover Made? Built in Italy!


Housed at the FIAT Centro Storico in Turin, Italy, the original Dante Giacosa-designed wooden master model for the 1957 FIAT 500 serves as inspiration for today’s 500X designers. With design cues that capture the charm and charisma of that very first “Nuova” Cinquecentro, the 2016 FIAT 500X boldly enters the Crossover segment with the FIAT spirit of innovation and functionality. . The interiors comfortably seat five while retaining classic elements like a smooth silhouette, 360-degree character lines, body-color instrument panels, circular three-button cluster and chrome door handles.

At the center of a major commitment to manufacturing reinvestment is the FIAT 500X, crafted in the newly updated assembly plant in Melfi, Italy. Outfitted with the Small Wide platform (one of three principal FCA architectures) and adhering to World Class Manufacturing (WCM) standards, Melfi is one of the most advanced vehicle assembly plants in the world. 

The vehicle platforms designed for Melfi allow for compliance with regulatory standards outside Italy, making for export-ready cars—no need for further modification. The FIAT 500X exemplifies the company’s widening global reach—it will be available for sale in more than 100 countries worldwide.
