As you may know already, Fiat previewed the 500X crossover last week, but today we found out that the vehicle will arrive to the U.S. dealerships sometimes in 2014. Although the vehicle carries the name of the popular small hatchback, the 500X will actually use the same platform used on the bigger Punto subcompact.
Moreover, the vehicle will have a total length of 165 inches, which means that it will be the longest model in the 500 family, even longer than the 2013 Fiat 500L.
For those who don’t know, the “standard” Fiat 500 has a total length of 140 inches. According to Autonews, the new Fiat 500X will be assembled in Turin alongside a new Jeep small crossover code-named B-SUV.
The new Jeep model is set to enter production in the second quarter of 2014, according to some insiders. The new Jeep model will be sold in the United States, but also in Europe, as well as in other markets. This new crossover will be smaller than the Jeep Compass and Patriot.
