Fiat has opened the order books for the limited edition Fiat 500X Opening Editions, which have gone on sale from £17,595 with the first deliveries expected in May 2015.
The 500X Opening Edition is limited to 500 models in the UK, split between 325 “City Look” 4x2 models and a 175 “Off-Road Look” AWD editions.
The Fiat 500X Opening Edition 4x2 is priced from £17,595, the same price as the 1.4 MultiAir II 140hp Pop Star trim level it is based upon but adds an extra £1,725 worth of equipment above the standard spec. Standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels; body-coloured bumpers; cruise control; front fog lights with cornering illumination; automatic climate control; rear parking sensors; plus the “Drive Mood” selector and the five-inch Uconnect infotainment system with Bluetooth. The Opening Edition 4x2 spec adds bespoke “Art Grey” pastel paint; 18-inch alloy wheels; the Safety Pack (Lane Assist; Blind Spot Assist; ParkView reversing camera and "Brake Control" collision mitigation system); the Comfort Pack (Keyless Entry & Keyless Go; front armrest and electric lumbar adjustment on the front seats); tinted rear windows and an “Opening Edition” badge.
If you would prefer all-wheel-drive then the Fiat 500X Opening Edition Cross Plus AWD is priced from £25,845 and it is powered by the diesel 2.0 MultiJet II 140hp engine with a 9-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes a black leather interior with red inserts; Visibility Pack (rain and light sensors, power folding door mirrors, electro-chromic rear view mirror), steering wheel paddle shifters and, again, an Opening Edition badge. This is in addition to the HID headlamps; adjustable cargo floor; front floor mats; 18-inch alloy wheels; 3.5-inch TFT colour display and 6.5-inch Uconnect™ infotainment system with 3D satellite navigation. This would normally cost £2,850 if specified with the 2.0 MultiJet II 140hp Cross Plus AWD.Published 20 December 2014
