What Car? says...

Remember when it seemed like almost every manufacturer was clamouring to board the retro train? From mainstream brands right up to manufacturers of luxury cars, everyone seemed to have at least one olde worlde model in their books. Of course, as tastes, changed the retro fad started to fade away, at least for most brands.

But there are always a few exceptions to the rule, and one of them is the Fiat 500X. Although it looks like a 500 city car that has eaten a few too many pies, it actually shares its platform and oily bits with the Jeep Renegade.

But, unlike that car, there’s no four-wheel drive option, putting it up against other road-biased small SUVs, such as the Kia StonicRenault Captur and Seat Arona. You’re also limited to petrol engines; there's no diesel option.

If the 500X's cutesy looks are still calling your name, read on to find out what it’s like and which version is our favourite. And whichever new car you settle on, take a look at our New Car Buying section for stonking deals on this and hundreds of others.
