Standard equipment on the 500X S-Design includes LED headlights and daytime running lights, rear parking sensors, a part-leather steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, cruise control and an electric parking brake.

A 3.5-inch colour display also features in the instrument cluster, while a seven-inch colour screen running Fiat’s Uconnect infotainment system takes centre stage on the dash. Happily, support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is included as standard.

Two petrol engines are available on the 500X S-Design. First is a 1.0-litre, 120bhp option that sends drive through a six-speed manual gearbox, while a 1.3-litre, 150hp unit paired with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission tops the range.

The Fiat 500X S-Design is available to order from Fiat dealers now, with prices starting from £20,495 on-road.
