Despite making several improvements (including an all-new 1.3-liter turbocharged engine) to the 2019 500X, which wasn't available until early spring, Fiat is following up with a couple of more updates for 2020. At the top of the list is the all-new Sport trim, which slots between the Trekking and Trekking Plus. A new black roof option is offered across the four trim levels.

Which 500X is the Best?
The more colorful the 500X, the better. We'd suggest picking a standout color combination in the Pop trim. If a full suite of safety and driver assist features is a must-have, move up to Trekking trim and add the Driver Assistance packages. Think twice about optioning the 18-in wheels, though -- they ruin the ride. Find a 2020 Fiat 500X for sale
How Much Does a 2020 FIAT 500X Cost?
The 500X is available in Pop, Trekking and Trekking Plus trim levels. All prices include the $1,495 factory delivery charge.
The base Pop trim ($26,085) includes a capless fuel filler, LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, Keyless Enter 'n Go, remote start, cruise control, heated power outboard mirrors with integrated turn signals, 17-in aluminum wheels, air conditioning, cloth seating, a fold-flat front passenger seat, a 60/40 split folding rear seat, hill start assist, a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, a Uconnect 4 interface with a 7-in touchscreen, a 6-speaker audio system, a USB port, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and voice command.
Among the many upgrade packages for Pop is the Popular Equipment package, which includes rear parking sensors, deep tinted glass, satellite radio capability and automatic headlamps.
The Trekking trim ($27,490) features more rugged styling details and adds to Pop's standard content and Popular Equipment package with cornering front fog lamps, height-adjustable cargo floor, illuminated vanity mirrors and upgraded cloth seats.
As with the Pop, there are several option packages on the Trekking, such as the Driver Assistance Group with LED projector headlamps, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and front and rear ParkSense parking assist system. There's also the Advanced Driver Assistance Group with adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning with emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, rain-sensing wipers and automatic high beams.
Think of the all-new Sport trim ($28,390) as a gussied-up Trekking model with new front and rear fascias, the unique Rovente Red exterior color, dark-finish exterior accents, a dark headliner, dark pillars, special sport cloth seating, flat-bottomed techno-leather steering wheel with Alcantara inserts and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. It shares many, but not all, of Trekking's option packages.
The Trekking Plus trim ($30,990) offers a little more luxury than the Trekking, adding LED headlights, dual-zone climate control, a cargo area cover, ambient interior lighting, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather seating, heated front seats, an 8-way power driver's seat, an upgraded 8-speaker audio system, a navigation system, front parking assist and rear ParkSense parking assist.
Many of the standard features on the upper grades are available as options or in option packages on the lower grades.
The Fiat 500X offers an impressive array of high-tech safety features and gadgets. Of course, it has all the standard items you might expect, such as side-curtain airbags and anti-lock brakes. But we're especially impressed with its long list of options (on all grades but the Pop), which includes forward-collision warning, lane-keeping assist, automatic high beams and blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
No third party has crash-tested the 2020 Fiat 500X.
2020 FIAT 500X vs the competition
2020 Hyundai Kona -- The fresh Kona offers a compelling blend of style, fuel economy, performance and value in a diminutive package that should work for many.
2020 Mazda CX-3 -- If you're looking for a little SUV that's fun to drive, check out the CX-3. Nothing really comes close to it, but, then, it's the smallest vehicle in the segment and doesn't offer a particularly elevated view.
2020 Honda HR-V -- Honda's Fit-based HR-V crossover offers better fuel economy, lower pricing and a much larger cabin than the 500X. It's slower, however, and a bit dreary to drive.
2020 Subaru Crosstrek -- The Crosstrek is roomy and delivers a comfortable ride. As with the 500X, the Crosstrek has AWD as standard. And if you like to stir the gears yourself, it offers a manual transmission.
