Fiat 500X Video, First Look

Fiat 500X Video, First Look

Fiat’s compact crossover debuted this week at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. If you missed it the first time, here’s you chance to get fed on all the details of this cute-ute.

The Fiat 500X shares most of its platform and power train with the upcoming Jeep Renegade. That means you’ll see a few engine options, including naturally aspirated and turbocharged four-cylinder engines.

Set to take on the Chevrolet Trax, the Fiat 500X will come with an all-wheel drive system that is used in the Chrysler 200. That means that the system can decouple the rear axle, reducing parasitic drag and improving fuel efficiency.

While the Jeep Renegade will be geared towards off-road capabilities, the Fiat 500X will be marketed towards on-road performance. Watch the video for more details.
