Fiat 500X - New Details & Renderings

Fiat family will grow soon with the addition of a fourth model called 500X, that will go against the MINI Countryman. The 500X, just as the 500L is based on the widened version of Punto hatchback’s platform and will be offered in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations.

Current 500 range has a strong female following and with the 500X, Fiat hopes to appeal also more to male buyers. Even though the 500X looks tougher and more masculine, it is easily recognisable as a 500, with similar styling, like headlamps and tail-lights.

Engine line-up will include a range of diesel and petrol units. Entry level model will likely use the 93bhp 1.4-litre TwinAir petrol, while the flagship models could use the 104bhp 1.0-litre two-cylinder.

Fiat 500X Concept is expected to debut next month at the Paris Motor Show. Production model is likely to be priced from £14,000 when it arrives sometimes in 2013.
