Next-generation FireFly petrol engines

The 500X’s front-wheel drive is powered by a turbo petrol engine line-up, which includes a three-cylinder 1.0-litre powerplant, 120hp and 190Nm of torque, with a six-speed manual transmission. There is also a four-cylinder, 1.3-litre engine, 150hp and 270Nm of torque, combined with six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission (DCT).
The new engines are made entirely from aluminium alloy, the three-cylinder version weighs 93kg, while the cylinder block, developed in partnership with Teksid, is in high-pressure die-cast aluminium alloy, with a bedplate architecture for the best combination of ride, weight and structural performance.

Driving Assist Systems
The new Fiat 500X offers customers a safe and connected driving experience thanks to the inclusion of safety assistance systems and the latest infotainment technology.
Standard offerings on all versions of the 500X:
The new Traffic Sign Recognition system uses a camera mounted on the inside of the windscreen to read the speed limits on road signs along the journey. The data is then sent, in real time, to the instrument cluster display where it alerts the driver to the limits to be complied with.
Intelligent Speed Assist works with the Speed Limiter, when activated, to adapt the speed of the car to the speed limit detected by the Traffic Sign Recognition system. It identifies the current speed limit and, at the click of a button, the Intelligent Speed Assist reduces the car's speed.
Lane Assist uses the optical sensor in the camera to identify the position of the car in relation to the lane markings on the road surface. If the car strays out of the lane, without the driver having indicated in that direction, the system triggers a visual alarm and applies additional torque to the steering wheel to counteract the unintended lane change. Lane Assist operates at speeds between 60kmph and 180kmph and can be activated by the driver.
A number of optional safety features are also available:
Connectivity as standard
All versions of the new Fiat 500X come with the Uconnect 7-inch HD LIVE touchscreen system, complete with Apple CarPlay integration and Android Auto compatibility as standard.

Eco:Drive and my:Car also allow drivers to monitor their driving style to improve the economy and running costs of their car. The system can be further enhanced with an optional Parkview rear parking camera and new TomTom 3D integrated navigation system.
The integration of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto offers the smartest and safest way to use the functions of a phone while driving.
