The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

The Fiat 500X's steering wheel adjusts for rake and reach, the pedals are placed neatly in line with the driver’s seat and there is even a decent range of seat-height adjustment. It’s not easy to get the right angle on the backrest, though, because you adjust it using a lever while leaning backwards or forwards rather than with a handy wheel, as you do in most rivals.

The seats are comfortable enough, even on longer journeys, and electrically adjustable lumbar support and a central armrest are available as part of the reasonably priced Comfort Pack, which is definitely worth adding. Fully electric seat adjustment is also optional.

The fairly high boot line means you’ll be making good use of the standard rear parking sensors. If you want front-parking sensors and a rear-view camera you need at least Cross trim – these are available as part of the pricey Driver Assistance Pack on lower trims.

A heated windscreen is available as part of the Winter Pack. Speaking of winter, when it gets dark earlier, bright LED headlights are standard on Cross trim and available as an option on Connect.

Sat nav and infotainment

All Fiat 500X models have a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system with a DAB radio, Bluetooth, two USB ports and an 'aux in' socket. Built-in sat-nav is only standard on Cross and Sport models, and optional on Connect – Pop doesn’t get it at all.
