Fiat has announced that the new 500X Sport will have a base-price of £22,500 in the UK. The sporty trim for the Italian brand’s compact crossover features a range of racy exterior design cues, a revised suspension system and an updated interior.

The Fiat 500X Sport is offered with a choice of two petrol engines. The entry-level model comes with a turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit developing 118bhp, while the range- topping variant comes with a turbocharged 1.3-litre four-cylinder with 148bhp.

Both engines’ power are sent to the front wheels. The less powerful engine comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, while the latter unit features a six-speed dual-clutch transmission. Adaptive dampers are fitted to the more potent model, improving the handling without compromising ride comfort, Fiat claims.

Exterior styling revisions over the standard Fiat 500X include a unique set of 18-inch alloy wheels, a more aggressive front bumper, body-coloured side skirts and trim, a revised rear diffuser, dual chrome exhaust tips and full LED headlights. It’s also 13mm lower than the standard model, thanks to its re-tuned suspension system.

Inside, buyers get an Alcantara-trimmed sports steering wheel, aluminium pedals, an aluminium gear-knob, an ambient interior lighting system and a revised Titanium grey-coloured dashboard. The seats are trimmed in an exclusive blend of black fabric and faux leather, embroidered with a grey “500” logo.

Elsewhere, the 500X Sport comes as standard with a seven-inch infotainment system, automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, cruise control and lane-keeping assist. Buyers can also spec larger 19-inch alloy wheels as an optional extra.
