New Fiat 500X updated for 2018

It's on-sale date is yet to be confirmed for the UK, but the updated Fiat 500X crossover will go on sale in mainland Europe first

Fiat has announced a raft of updates for the 2018 model year 500X crossover - the car will arrive in the UK next year. 

The Fiat 500X has been updated with a fresh new look and more technology thrown in. The Donatello Bronze and Alpi Matte Green colour schemes, previously available on S-Design models only, will be available across the range.

• Best crossovers on the market 

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.

• Best city cars to buy now

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.
