Apple CarPlay allows your iPhone to integrate with the display and native controls of the car, allowing the driver to make calls, play music, send and receive messages, get directions optimised for traffic conditions using Apple Maps and much more.

Android Auto offers access to navigation via Google Maps, with real-time traffic information and lane guidance, as well as Google Play Music and other music services.

Users who download the free Uconnect LIVE app from the App Store or Google Play Store to their smartphone can enjoy music streaming with Deezer and TuneIn, news from Reuters, connected navigation with TomTom LIVE and can stay in touch with friends via Facebook and Twitter.

The simplified 500X range is now available in three trim levels, combined with a choice of three petrol and two diesel engines.

Fiat is also offering a number of options packs to boost the standard specifications. These include the Cold Weather pack, which comes with a heated steering wheel, heated front seats and heated wiper area, or the City pack to add electrically folding and heated door mirrors and rear parking camera. Marching Green paint is now available exclusively on Cross Plus models.

The Fiat 500X is available to order now priced from £15,550 on-road for the 500X Pop 1.6-litre 110hp petrol, rising to £25,250 for the 500X Cross Plus 2.0-litre 140bhp with all-wheel drive.
