Review

The Fiat 500X has a nice-looking interior, and many will be sold by the styling alone. There are, however, plenty of other small SUVs in the same price bracket that are more practical, better to drive and offer a higher level of safety equipment and crash protection.

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.

This turbocharged three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine offers adequate performance and is our pick of the lineup. Only available with a manual gearbox.
