Fiat 500X

The range already stretches from the original city car to a seven-seat MPV. The new 500X crossover slots into the middle. Designed to be more stylish than other European people carriers and more subtle than zany Asian rivals such as the Nissan Juke and Kia Soul, it’s the car that Fiat hopes will crack the American market.
