Expert Rating

Summary


The Fiat 500X is a small SUV/crossover hatchback. Although it shares a family resemblance to the Fiat 500 city car (along with most of its name), it is actually a completely different and much larger vehicle.

The 500X was launched in 2014 and received a substantial mechanical update in Summer 2018, although visual changes were minimal.

The Fiat 500X has received mostly average to good reviews from the UK motoring media. It has been praised for being stylish and good to drive, while criticisms have centred around its practicality and space compared to rivals.

As of Spring 2022, the 500X is available with a mild hybrid petrol engine, which improves fuel efficiency and (unlike most mild hybrid motors) is able to provide a very small amount of electric power to move the car under limited conditions. However, its electrical assistance is much less than that found on a regular hybrid car, which can travel some distance and at normal urban speeds on electrical power alone.

As of February 2022, the Fiat 500X has an Expert Rating of 57% based on 21 reviews.

The Fiat 500X has not been lab tested by Green NCAP. This is a new initiative, launched in 2018 as a sister organisation to Euro NCAP, and only a few cars have do far been assessed.

The 500X is now an old car so it is likely that it will never be tested by Green NCAP. If it does ever happen, we’ll update this page with the results.
