The Urban features an all-new front and rear bumper design, while the Cross adds new-look protective skid plates. 

Inside, a completely restyled cockpit features a new instrument cluster, with graphics that are now even easier to read, together with a new steering wheel which is contoured to ensure better positioning of the driver's hands.

A three-cylinder 1.0-litre engine delivers 120PS and a four-cylinder 1.3-litre engine offers 150PS.The entry-level motor is a 1.6-litre petrol with 110PS.

Traffic Sign Recognition, Speed Advisor and Lane Assist are now offered as standard on all versions of the new Fiat 500X. In addition Blind Spot Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control and City Brake Control can be optionally specified.

All versions of the new Fiat 500X come with the Uconnect seven-inch touchscreen system, complete with Apple CarPlay integration and Android Auto.
