A high-resolution seven-inch Uconnect HD Live touchscreen is the main new feature on the 500X range from the Pop Star trim level up. The touchscreen features Bluetooth with audio streaming and voice recognition, while a rear parking camera and a TomTom 3D sat nav system are also part of the onboard touchscreen. 

Fiat's Uconnect Live infotainment system enables drivers who have downloaded the app on their phone to benefit from live functions such as a live Reuters news feed, music streaming from Deezer and TuneIn as well as Facebook check-in and Twitter updates. The system offers Apple CarPlay and is compatible with Android Auto.

Fiat also includes ‘personalities’ across the 500X range. ‘Urban Look’ is more city-orientated and features on the Pop, Pop Star and Lounge trim levels, while a more aggressive ‘Cross Look’ is available on the Cross and City Cross variants.
