Convertible Fiat 500X Dolcevita confirmed for UK market

The open-top version of the Fiat 500X crossover has a roof that can open in 15 seconds flat

Fiat has revealed that the new open-top ‘Dolcevita’ version of its 500X crossover will go on sale in the UK, with order books open now and prices starting from £23,975. 

The 500X Dolcevita features a large, electrically opening canvas roof. It provides a not-quite full convertible experience similar to that in the Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet and is one of the only small, supermini sized SUVs on the market with an open top.

The canvas roof can open or close in 15 seconds, even at speeds of up to 62mph. Black, grey and red canvas materials are available, alongside the car’s 10 body paint colours. 

The 500X Dolcevita is part of the refreshed 500 family, joining updated versions of the 500 city car, the regular 500X crossover and the 500L MPV. As such, it’s available in three trim levels similar to those found elsewhere in the 500 family. 

The Connect version of the car is equipped with a 7-inch U-Connect infotainment system with DAB Radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with black fabric upholstery, a faux leather trimmed steering wheel and 17-inch alloy wheels. 

Sitting above the Connect version are 500X Dolcevita Cross and Sport versions, the former introducing rugged SUV design cues and the latter employing a sportier look. Both come with 19-inch wheels and automatic air conditioning as standard, while the Sport model also comes with black sports seats with red piping, aluminium effect dashboard trim and a 3.5-inch driver information display. 

Two petrol engines are available. A turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder, developing 118bhp and sending drive to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox, is offered alongside a 148bhp 1.3-litre four-cylinder petrol option mated to a DCT automatic as standard. 

Prices start from £23,975 for the car in Connect trim with the 118bhp three-cylinder unit, while Cross and Sport model versions of the 500X Dolcevita are also available with this engine, priced from £25,775 and £27,275 respectively. 

Cross and Sport versions of the car are also where the 148bhp 1.3-litre automatic engine becomes available. On the Cross, it costs from £28,275 and is priced from £29,775 for the Sport model.
