Editor's Overview

The 2017 Fiat 500X blends chic Italian design with all-wheel-drive capability and the higher ride height and cargo versatility of a small SUV. Despite its stylish looks and laudable safety features, the 500X trails far better rivals like the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3 and Subaru Crosstrek in driving refinement, fuel efficiency, value and overall satisfaction.

That it is amazing. Good on gas. Love the sports mode.

I love my car. Bought it brand new. It's a limited edition. I love the sun and moon roof. I love all the electronics. Always finding something new. Hate that I can't figure out how to make lights turn on when car doors are open.

It is fun to drive. Handles well on mountain roads and on long trips.

My Fiat offers me style as well as fuel efficiency. It is considered an SUV, so the four doors and collapsing back seat allows me to carry larger loads than other cars in this size bracket.

I like the vehicle but after only 2000 miles, it runs rougher and sounds loud. I brought it back to the dealership and they it is was "normal". It was not this way when I bought the car....

It is a smaller crossover vehicle. Many people may not like that. I do like it because it is so much easier to maneuver.
