The Fiat 500X is a front engine, front wheel drive, five door hatchback crossover sport utility vehicle (SUV) manufactured and marketed by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, since its debut at the Paris Motor Show.

The 500X is based on the Small Wide 4×4 architecture, a platform evolved from the GM Fiat Small platform used for the Fiat Grande Punto and Fiat 500L.

The Fiat 500X is available with several engines that drive the front wheels by standard, while all wheel drive is an option with most engines. At launch, the following engines were available outside of North America: one petrol, the turbocharged 1.4 MultiAir2, and two MultiJet turbodiesels displacing 1.6 and 2.0 litres.

In North America, the Fiat 500X features the following two engines:<

  • A 1.4 litre turbocharged four cylinder engine, with a six speed manual transmission available only with front wheel drive.
  • A normally-aspirated 2.4 litre four cylinder engine, with a nine speed automatic with standard front wheel drive and optional with all wheel drive.
