➤ Fiat’s new range-topping 500X ‘Sport’ trim level brings styling and handling upgrades to the popular crossover.
The Fiat 500X Sport trim level is now available to lease and brings lower suspension and more aggressive styling over the regular 500X, giving it a sportier look than the rest of the 500X ‘Urban’ range. Rival trims include the SEAT Arona ‘FR’, the Peugeot 2008 ‘GT-Line’ and the Ford EcoSport ‘ST-Line’.
A new body kit is exclusive to the Sport trim level, alongside a pair of chromed exhaust pipes, a faux rear diffuser. LED headlights and fog lights are standard and it features grey detailing on the door handles, bumper inserts, mirror caps and exterior trim pieces.
The 500X Sport is shod with exclusive 18-inch alloy wheels as standard, with larger 19-inch alloy wheels an extra cost option. Five paint colours are available: Ice White, Cinema Black, Fashion Grey, Italia Blue and Sport Red, the last of which is exclusive to this trim level. All body colours can be specified with a contrasting black roof.
Inside, the sporty theme continues with a flat-bottomed steering wheel with suede-like inserts and an aluminium gear knob. There is red stitching and a contrasting grey dashboard, aluminium pedals, ambient lighting and exclusive black half-leather upholstery with a grey 500 logo. The Fiat 500X Sport also gets red accents on the instrument panel and new graphics for the TFT screen.
Among the standard equipment is a seven-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, navigation, automatic air conditioning, cruise control and rear parking sensors. The Sport sits above the ‘Urban’ and ‘120th Anniversary’ models in the range and is the flagship model in the current 500X line-up.
The engine range consists of just two petrol units. The range-entry 1.0-litre engine produces 118hp, and can only be specified with a six-speed manual gearbox. A more powerful 148hp 1.5-litre petrol engine tops the range and is only available with a six-speed DCT automatic gearbox.
