Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
The front seats in the Fiat 500X slide a long way back if you need them to, giving more leg room than in some rivals, and the high roof means tall occupants will still have room to spare. Somewhat less impressive, though, is the cramped pedal area that gives you very little space for your left foot.
In terms of storage, Fiat gives you plenty of cubbies dotted around the 500X’s interior, with two cupholders between the front seats, a large shallow dish just ahead of the gear lever (ideal for a phone) and a chilled glovebox that's standard on all models.
Seat folding and flexibility
Every 500X comes with rear seats that are split 60/40 and fold almost flat when you release the lock on their outer shoulders. It’s a shame there are no extra party tricks in terms of flexibility – like the sliding rear seats in the Citroen C3 Aircross for example – but it will still do the job nicely for general family use.
If you opt for the Electric Pack, you get an electrically adjustable passenger seat, while the Comfort Pack adds a height-adjustable front passenger seat.
