Fiat faces an uncertain future in the United States, but that hasn’t stopped the company from introducing the 2019 500X Urbana Edition.
Based on the 500X Trekking, the Urbana Edition has a unique exterior with Miron black accents on the door handles, mirror caps and fascias, as well as black accents on the sill moldings and taillight surrounds. Elsewhere, it sports LED lighting units and black 18-inch wheels with copper center caps. Last but not least, the model has roof rails and 500X logos with copper accents.
The 500X Urbana Edition will be available in four colors: Grigio Graphite (Graphite Gray), Vibrante Green, Bianco Gelato (White Clear Coat) and Nero Cinema (Black Clear Coat).
Interior changes are more modest as drivers will find unique seats with “black Castiglio chevron-patterned fabric and copper-embroidered 500 logos.” Other highlights include a black-painted center console and Miron-painted bezels for the radio and air vents. There’s also a black-textured instrument panel with a copper 500 logo.
Fiat didn’t say much about equipment, but the 500X does come standard with air conditioning, a 3.5-inch vehicle information display and 7-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. An assortment of options will be available including heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof and an Advanced Driver Assistance Group which adds adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross path detection and forward collision warning plus.
Power is provided by a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 177 hp (132 kW / 179 PS) and 210 lb-ft (284 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive as standard.
The Urbana Edition package costs $895, which means pricing starts at $26,890, excluding a $1,495 destination charge.
