Fiat Readying 500X For 2019 With Mild Refresh

The facelifted Fiat 500X, set to arrive as a 2019 model, has been snapped during testing in the Arctic Circle.

As is common with facelifted vehicles, particularly from the FCA stable, the styling changes to the refreshed 500X will only be minor. With that in mind, key exterior modifications will include a new front grille, redesigned daytime running lights, and a different bumper. Similarly, the rear will adopt a new bumper as well as a more complex yet still familiar taillight design.

Fiat will also roll out some interior tweaks with the car. First and foremost, there will be a new infotainment screen, not visible in these spyshots due to all the testing equipment in the cabin. Elsewhere, the quirky 500X will have a new steering wheel and modified gauge cluster.

If you’re a big fan of the Fiat 500 range, you may recall that the Italian marque updated the vehicle for the 2018 model year. In doing so, a new range of personalization options were launched, as were some interior changes. In an industry where consumers are consistently demanding to have the latest and greatest vehicle, it appears as though Fiat is looking to provide the answer with its second 500X update in 12 months.

    The 500X is a much nicer effort and they should have killed the 500 L when introducing it here. FCA should have introduced the Hurrican powerplant earlier instead of every complaing about the lack luster Tigershark. Hopefully with the update 500X it should have it and attract more buyers, still Fiat needs more models than everything being 500. The 124 needs its own interior and U Connect.

    The 500 should have never been made a L or X. Both the most ugliest cars in this decade.
