The 2016 Fiat 500X … a Genuine Italian Jeep

For 2016 Fiat will roll out the all new 500X, a compact crossover that, believe it or not, is built on the same platform as the Jeep Renegade.
So obviously the little 500 has had a shot of steroids to beef it up for size and capabilities, available in two and four wheel drive options.
Engines are available as 1.4 ltr Multi-Air turbo engine paired with a 6-speed manual transmission this combination is only available with front two wheel drive package, or a 2.4 ltr 2016Fiat500X-Interior-DashMulti-Air normally aspirated unit coupled to a 9-speed automatic transmission.
With three driving modes of Auto, Sport and Traction fuel economy is maximised by a drive disconnection to the rear axle if extra traction is not required.
All of today’s expected electronic driver assistance gizmos are fitted such as blind spot monitors, hill start, forward collision warnings, lane departure, etc, etc.
With comfort packages you can have those heated electric seats and steering wheel amongst other creature comforts that seem to be required for today’s driving public.
So why do I still prefer my old early 90’s 4×4 ???
