Fiat 500X Trekking Plus—Italian Sportswear



The newest Fiat will turn heads for altogether different reasons.  Our model’s Arancio (Orange) paint was a starter. Fiat describes its look as having "whiskers" and a "low, smiling grill.”  The small SUV segment is expected to grow 200% over the next five years and Fiat plans to play a role.  The new 500X is a slightly wider, shorter, and higher off the ground four-door model.  Inside headroom, seat comfort and cargo space are surprising for such a tidy package.  The Trekking Plus model sported 2.4 liter Tigershark MultiAir2 engine outputting 180 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque, 18-inch alloy wheels, a more rugged fascia, leather upholstery, dual-pane sunroof, Beats premium audio system, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts and rear parking sensors.  Fiat calls it a “500 that has been pumping iron” with an all-wheel-drive option and dynamic driving modes including standard, sport and traction. Just as one might dress in sportswear and not really head to the gym, the Trekking delivers a cheeky off-road look but is truly designed for on-road confidence.
