Fiat 500X 2018 pricing and spec confirmed

Fiat Australia has introduced its updated 500X range which now consists of two trim levels only.

The entry-level Pop which starts at $24,990 before on-road costs in manual form or $26,990 in automatic guise, while automatic-only Pop Star flagship checks in at $29,990.

A Pop Star-based Launch Edition commands a $32,990 sticker price, but only 100 units of it will be available.

The new pricing structure represents a $1010 discount for the Pop, and a $2010 reduction for the Pop Star. The previous top-spec Lounge and Cross Plus variants have been deleted from the range.

Distinguishing the new model from its predecessor is 'bespoke' interior switchgear and a standard 7.0-inch 'Uconnect' touchscreen multimedia system compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The new set-up also features in-built satellite navigation on the Pop Star.

A 560W, eight-channel Beats Audio premium sound system is also available as an option on the Pop Star, though is standard on the limited-run Launch Edition.

The Pop Star has also been treated to an array of standard safety and driver assistance technologies, including cornering fog lamps, full-speed forward collision warning with auto emergency braking, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control.

The Launch Edition receives 17-inch 'special edition' alloys, black leather-appointed power seats and electric folding exterior mirrors.

Fiat Australia says the Launch Edition represents $5,500 of added value despite costing just $3000 more than the Pop Star.

Six colour options will be available for the Launch Edition, including 'Gelato White', 'Argento Grey', 'Cinema Black', 'Fashion Grey', 'Venezia Blue' and 'Passione Red'.

No changes have been made under the bonnet, with the 500X still powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine that produces 103kW/230Nm and drives the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox or dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Fiat claims fuel efficiency figures of 6.0L/100km for the manual and 7.0L/100km for the automatic.
