Editor's Overview

Based on the smaller 500 “Cinquecento” subcompact, the 2018 Fiat 500X is stretched to include four doors, standard all-wheel drive and increased ground clearance. Built to rival other subcompact-crossover SUVs like the Mazda CX-3, Chevy Trax and Honda HR-V, the 500X looks good on paper, but in reality falls far short of the reliability and resale figures of said competitors.

Fun to drive, it's handling on the road is smooth and responsive.

I absolutely love it. Driving the car is a dream, The view of the road is great. I love the fact that the vehicle sits up high and plenty of ground clearance. I Do however dislike when the driver side shoulder safely belt . The sliding buckle gets hung up time to time.

It is very comfortable and safe.

It is spacious and comfortable on the inside, I love the retro design of the body. It comes with many great features like the stereo and radio system which easily connects to my iPhone.

- Alessandro B

A very good car for if you are on a budget

It is very safe and spacious, I love the retro design of the body and the many features included. It could be more powerful and more efficient in term of gas consumes.
