Fiat has announced that it will offer a special Opening Edition of the 500X when it goes on sale globally next year.
Sadly, we won’t be seeing the Opening Edition in South Africa. Only 2000 will be offered, and sold exclusively Italy, Germany, France, Spain and Switzerland.
The Fiat 500X “Opening Edition” will be available in three versions: two 4×2 options with the 140 HP 1.4 Turbo MultiAir II or the 120 HP 1.6 MultiJet II engines, and one 4×4 with the 140 HP 2.0 MultiJet II engine.
The 500X “Opening Edition” with 4×2 drive system – equipped with the 120 HP 1.6 MultiJet II engine or the 140 HP 1.4 Turbo MultiAir II – features a pastel Art Grey livery, and an exclusive selection of equipment such as automatic climate control, 18″ alloy rims, the “Safety Pack” which includes a comprehensive range of active safety systems (anti-collision, a lane change assistance system to get around blind spots, a lane departure warning system, a rear camera for reversing), as well as the “Comfort Pack” to ensure optimum on-board comfort (armrest and lumbar adjustment) plus the Keyless Entry & Keyless Go system, tinted rear windows and the exclusive Opening Edition badge.
The second version comes in exclusive tri-coat Amore Red, and boasts 4×4 drive system with a 140 HP 2.0 MultiJet II engine plus 9-speed automatic transmission. The top of the range equipment on this model is sure to attract attention. As well as a host of features as standard, the purchase price also includes a wealth of exclusive content, from the special tri-coat Amore Red paint, to the navigation pack (Uconnect Nav 6.5″ with additional USB port on the front armrest compartment), plus two-tone red and black leather interiors, visibility pack with rain and dusk sensors, electrically folding door mirrors, an electrochromic rear view mirror, steering wheel gear controls and the exclusive Opening Edition badge.
