The new Fiat 500x looks to extend the '500' brand

Auto Tech
[MUSIC] What's up, folks? I'm Antuan Goodwin, on the floor of the 2014 Paris Motor Show and right now we're taking a look at the Fiat 500x. It's another sort of large-ish crossover from the small Italian brand. Now if you're seeing hints of the Fiat 500L don't be surprised. The two vehicles share a lot of the same styling cues as they sort of up size the round head lights and sort of quirky design of the Fiat 500. But what you may not notice. Is that underneath the skin, it actually shares its underpinnings and a couple of it's engine and transmission options with the recently unveiled Jeep Renegade. This is gonna be the first Fiat model that will debut with the nine-speed automatic transmission that we've seen on the Chrysler 200C and on the Jeep Renegade. It's also gonna be available with a wide range of engines. Starting from diesel engines, to turbo charged four cylinders, all the way up to the brand nationally aspirated 2.4 liter Tigershark engine putting out about a 184 horsepower. Now it's going to be available in two different trims, one's going to be more cosmopolitan, more metropolitan, for the city, and the other's gonna be this sort of. Leisure model that's gonna have extra plastic trim it's gonna make it look a little bit more rugged. And inside we're gonna have a couple of more infotainment options under the Uconnect branding. Previous systems were powered by Garmin but the 5.5 and 6 inch navigation systems in this vehicle are actually gonna be powered by TomTom so we're looking forward to getting our hands on that and seeing how they do. It's also gonna be available with the Beats by Dre audio for those of you who like the bass. At the very least I think the notch back design is a little bit more attractive than the Fiat 500L. So, if Fiat's gonna go big this is probably a good way to do it. I've been Antoine Goodwin. On the floor of the 2014 Eric Strata show taking a look at the Fiat 500 X. [MUSIC]
