500x: The "American" Fiat 500

The 2014 Paris Auto Show in October marked the debut of the latest member of the Fiat 500 family: the 500x. While the 500x shares a similar footprint to the (some would say) more homely 500L, it's built on the new Jeep Renegade architecture. A sloping roofline and aggressive (at least for the Trekking variant) stance combined with the 500's iconic styling could make the 500x a big winner in the compact crossover market in America.

Like the 500L, but unlike the hatchback versions, the larger platform means more room inside, including room for a navigation screen, and other niceties that are becoming must-haves at even the lower end of the market.

Designated with a 2016 model year, we can expect to see the 500x in showrooms some time in 2015.
