Fiat 500X range grows with new S-Design model

Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Car Expert?

Fiat has added a new S-Design trim specification to its 500X, providing some exterior changes and a unique interior theme.

The Fiat 500X S-Design is based on the existing City Cross specification, with a few upgrades inside and out.

Externally there are matte black highlights on the roof bars, boot lid, door handles and front body cladding. The S-Design also gets black 17-inch alloy wheels and a bronze ‘X’ logo on the side of the car to complete the look.

Step inside and you’ll find a textured matte black dashboard fascia, combined with a copper-coloured ‘500’ badge to continue the S-Design theme. It also features leather trim inserts around the interior.

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.
