2020 FIAT 500X review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Fiat 500X?

The Fiat 500X is a five-seat subcompact SUV powered by a standard 177-horsepower, turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a nine-speed automatic transmission.  All-wheel drive is standard, and 500X competitors include the Subaru Crosstrek, Honda HR-V and Hyundai Kona.

What’s New on the 2020 Fiat 500X?

A new Sport trim level features unique exterior and interior design cues, including different front-end styling with a more prominent lower grille opening and larger foglight surrounds. There are also Sport badges on the front fenders; gray door handles and mirror caps; a dark headliner and roof pillars; revised finishes on the doors and center console; sport seats finished in fabric and vinyl; a leather and Alcantara steering wheel with shift paddles; an Alcantara-finished instrument panel hood; aluminum pedal covers; and Sport floormats. A black roof is optional on all trim levels.

What Features in the 2020 Fiat 500X Are Most Important?

The 500X’s standard 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, as well as Bluetooth streaming audio. The SUV’s standard all-wheel-drive system is uncommon in this class (most competitors have standard front-wheel drive), but its inclusion is offset by a higher starting price. Available active safety features include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane-keep assist, and blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert.

Should I Buy the 2020 Fiat 500X?

If you’re looking for a little more style than the subcompact SUV norm, the 500X is worth a look. However, there are some odd ergonomics in the cabin, and the automatic transmission’s behavior could be better. The backseat is tight, too.
