An Updated Fiat 500X Could Be on the Way


The only model in the Fiat stable (at least in the U.S. market) could soon receive a mild styling update.

On Wednesday, Fiat showed off images of a refreshed European-market 500X with new lighting, a different front fascia with big “500” badging, and the addition of a (RED) trim level. Revised retro-style Fiat badging has been added to the rear end of the 500X. A Fiat press release noted no major interior changes, though the (RED) model features red seat piping and embroidery.

In Europe, Fiat said that the updates correspond with the 2022 model year. However, we won’t see them until model year 2023 at the earliest, as the 2022 Fiat 500X is already on sale here with limited changes compared to last year.

Over the last few years, Fiat whittled its lineup to a single model, dropping the 500 minicar and the 124 roadster in favor of the 500X, which shares its underpinnings (and its assembly plant in Italy) with the Jeep Renegade.

The 500X was easily Fiat’s top seller in the U.S. last year, but just 1,181 made their way to consumers. Compared to the 407,000 RAV4 models that Toyota sold during the same period or the 47,000 Renegade CUVs delivered by Jeep dealers, that’s barely a drop in the bucket. See Fiat 500X models for sale
