Spyshots: Fiat 500X Test Mule Spotted in Alps
The interesting thing is this car was spotted in the Alps and seems to have driven rear wheels as well, unlike some of the cars currently in this class. Of course, Fiat are masters at squeezing AWD into really tiny cars.
Because most of its models have gained a bad reputation, Fiat is moving more and more models to the 500 name, widely recognized around the world. This crossover belongs to the B-segment and will be about 4.2 meters long, meaning it will rival the Nissan Juke, Renault Captur and Peugeot 2008.
The Italian factory that will make the 500X will also assemble its Jeep cousin for export and is expected to make 280,000 units per year, 150,000 of them the new Jeep model, and 130,000 of them the Fiat.
Engine options should include everything from the a two-cylinder turbo to small diesels. Natural Gas cars are very popular in Italy, so we wouldn't be surprise if they made such a version.
