Fiat 500X Refreshed For 2018MY, Can You Tell What’s Different?

Fiat has operated a few styling and technology updates to the Urban and Cross versions of the Fiat 500X, which have been taken into the 2018MY.

The visual revisions are modest, to say the least, but in Fiat’s defense, these aren’t facelifted models, but rather slightly tweaked ones, meant to increase their life span.

The FCA-owned brand has added the Donatello Bronze and Alpi Matte Green colors to both versions of the 500X, which come straight from the S-Design models, and can be complemented by a range of personalization options that has been extended with the launch of specific packs.

However, the biggest change lies inside, where the 2018 Fiat 500X now gets the next-gen Uconnect infotainment system, with a 7-inch touchscreen display. This is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, and comes with Bluetooth, audio streaming, voice recognition, and the omnipresent AUX and USB ports.

Customers can also have a reversing camera and the new TomTom 3D integrated navigation system by checking them from the options list, and they can also benefit from the Uconnect Live services.

Fiat is expected to open the order books for the ‘new’ 500X in the coming weeks, with pricing to be announced.

      agreed. I kinda like it, especially in that beautiful green. However, would you catch me at a dealership about to lease one? Nope, too darn cute of a little car.

    Like in 99% of cases nowadays, update model means new functions for the Infotainment system. Same here….

      7 inch, it’s hard to find in thy class anything bigger and included in the price. In Italy the price isn’t changed so it sounds even better: same price, better equipment nicer car

    A proper infotainment system is just what it needs to stay current. Next year it will get a facelift and new engines.
