The 500X replaces the Fiat logo at the front with a 500 badge as part of the styling tweaks

Fiat has put its 500X family crossover under the knife and upped the level of creature comforts across the line-up.

Available to order now priced fromt £22,085, tweaks to the styling of the 500X are designed to bring it into line with the smaller 500 city car.

The most significant change sees the Fiat logo above the car’s front grille replaced with the 500 logo. Around the back, the company name is spelt out in bold lettering across the top of the boot-lid.

“These two design cues add modernity to the 500X and make the 500X even more contemporary with a nod to the look and feel of the New 500,” the Italian firm said.

Built in hatchback and recently-announced ‘Dolcevita’ soft top guises, the new 500X is available in ‘Club’, ‘Cross’ and ‘Sport’ trim levels. ‘Club’ models wear 16-inch alloy wheels and get air conditioning, cruise control and a 7-inch touchscreen as standard.

Moving up to mid-spec ‘Cross’ secures more rugged exterior design cues on top of 17-inch wheels and LED headlights. Inside, the cabin features dual-zone climate control. The hatch costs £23,585 and the soft top £26,235.

The range is completed by ‘Sport’ which boasts puddle lights, body-coloured bumpers and side skirts, an alcantara steering wheel and a colour TFT driver display. It is priced at £25,085 and £27,735 for the hatch and ‘Dolcevita’ respectively.

Irrespective of grade, all cars are powered by Fiat’s 1-litre ‘FireFly’ turbo petrol unit which sends its power to the front axle via a 6-speed manual transmission.

Fiat has also taken opportunity to run its eye over its Tipo hatch. Comprising ‘Tipo’, ‘City Life’ and ‘Cross’ models, prices kick off at £19,995 and climb to £22,595.

Adaptive cruise control, electric heated door mirrors and a 7-inch colour touchscreen with DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity are standard on all variants, with ‘City Life’ adding 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and rear lights, and a 7-inch digital cluster.

The Tipo ‘Cross’ is marked out by chunky bumpers and roof bars and receives a rear-view parking camera, front and rear parking sensors, auto high beam, body-coloured door mirrors and satellite navigation.
