Keep it cheap and the 500X is a decent choice; it's stylish, fairly practical and quite classy inside. That said, a Seat Arona or Kia Stonic offer a better driving experience and a more complete all-round package.read the full model review
We’d recommend avoiding top-spec Cross Plus trim, because although its LED headlights and sat-nav are nice additions, the 18in wheels spoil the car's ride. We’d stick to City Cross and add a couple of choice options with the saving.
You’ll need to upgrade to City Cross trim to get this three-cylinder engine, but it’s well worth it. It has adequate performance, is more efficient than the 1.6 and is decently refined, too. We just wish the throttle response were a little sharper.
