The Fiat 500X is towards the expensive end of the small SUV market, especially if you opt for the hybrid variant. Discounts are usually available, so it’s always worth checking our Fiat 500X deals page for the best savings.
While the 500X will cost about the same as a Seat Arona or Skoda Kamiq to buy, it’s predicted to suffer more depreciation over three years – something worth bearing in mind if you’re buying outright. There are often special offers with PCP finance deals, making the monthly payments more affordable.
If you want your 500X to be a mild hybrid, you’ll have to opt for Cross, Red or Sport trim, but there’s a hefty jump in price, so you’ll have to seriously weigh up whether you really need the added efficiency.
Fiat came bottom (30th place out of the 30 manufacturers rated) in our 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey. We don’t yet have any data for the 500X specifically.
Fiat gives you a three-year, 60,000-mile warranty as standard. The third year of that is provided by the dealer, rather than the car maker itself, although that shouldn’t affect what’s covered or how any complaints are dealt with.
