2015 Fiat 500X officially confirmed for 2014 Paris Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 5, 2014

On Monday, we revealed you the fact that Fiat will introduce a new crossover and a roadster in 2015. Of course, many of you folks already knew that the crossover was the 500X but there were no details regarding the debut date. Until today, when Fiat officially confirmed that it will unveil the 500X next month, at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.

Based on the brand new 2015 Jeep Renegade, the Fiat 500X will not be a surprise when it comes to design as it will look a lot like the standard 500 and will feature several elements in order to feature a rugged body.

In addition, a new suspension system will be available too, as the 500X needs to be capable to be driven on uneven roads. Under the hood, we expect to find the same engines used by the Jeep Renegade, such as the 1.4-liter turbocharged inline-four with 160 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque, bolted to a six-speed manual transmission.

Moreover, the crossover will get the 2.4-liter inline-four that produces 184 hp and 177 pounds-feet of torque, mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. We expect the vehicle to be offered as standard with front-wheel-drive while the full-time all-wheel-drive system will be available as an option.
