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.
