The new 2020 Fiat 500X Sport model makes its North American debut at this week’s 2019 AutoMobility LA.
The new 500X Sport builds on its classic Italian design with a youthful, sporty appearance that offers even more customized features on top of an advanced, fuel-efficient turbocharged engine.
Highlighted with the introduction of an all-new exterior paint colour “Rovente Red,” the Fiat 500X Sport offers a host of new stylish exterior features, including new front and rear fascia designs and body-color painted side-moldings along with a “Sport” badge displayed on the front fender.
The same sporty and adventurous style displayed on the exterior is also found in the interior. This is highlighted with a dark-finished headliner and pillars along with new interior door and console bezel surface finishes.
A new techno-leather steering wheel features handcrafted red stitching and Alcantara inserts with paddle shifters that provide optimal gear selection, resulting in a spirited driving experience.
Designed and manufactured in Italy, the 2020 Fiat 500X Sport features an advanced standard-equipped 1.3-litre turbocharged engine with the latest iteration of the FCA exclusive MultiAir (called MultiAir III) valve-actuation technology, engine stop-start (ESS) technology and an impressive 210 lb/ft of torque.
Also standard are a nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive system with an automatic disconnecting rear axle that contributes to improved fuel economy of up to three miles per gallon compared to the previous engine.
With fuel economy of up to (US) 30 mpg highway, the Fiat 500X is the only vehicle in its class to have (US) 30 mpg highway and standard all-wheel drive.
The Fiat 500X Sport offers more than 70 available safety and security features, including available Adaptive Cruise Control and Front Park Assist for added passenger convenience and protection.
