Windsor, Ontario – FIAT recently revealed   the new 2020 Fiat 500X Sport model will make its North American debut.  The new 500X Sport builds on its classic Italian design with a youthful, sporty appearance that offers even more customized features on top of an advanced, fuel-efficient turbocharged engine.

Highlighted with the introduction of an all-new exterior paint colour “Rovente Red,” the Fiat 500X Sport offers a host of new stylish exterior features, including new front and rear fascia designs and body-colour painted side-moldings along with a “Sport” badge displayed on the front fender. Available LED lighting systems provide enhanced visibility in all driving conditions. Full LED headlights are coupled with LED fog lamps, creating a signature, sporty look. Dark-finish exterior accents on mirror caps, door handles and the rear license plate brow further define its appearance. New 18-inch aluminum wheels come standard and, for the first time on any 500X model, an all-new 19-inch premium aluminum wheel with Michelin CrossClimate all-season tires is available. Chrome dual-exhaust tips complete its unmistakable road presence.

The same sporty and adventurous style displayed on the exterior is also found in the interior. This is highlighted with a dark-finished headliner and pillars along with new interior door and console bezel surface finishes. A new techno-leather steering wheel features handcrafted red stitching and Alcantara inserts with paddle shifters that provide optimal gear selection, resulting in a spirited driving experience.  Furthermore, a new Alcantara-covered cluster brow and new cluster graphics and instrument-panel bezel finish create a functional, clean appearance for drivers and passengers alike. In addition, aluminum pedal covers and new Sport floor mats come standard. Designed and manufactured in Italy, the 2020 Fiat 500X Sport features an advanced standard-equipped 1.3-litre turbocharged engine with the latest iteration of the FCA exclusive MultiAir (called MultiAir III) valve-actuation technology, engine stop-start (ESS) technology and an impressive 210 lb.-ft. of torque. Also standard are a nine-speed automatic transmission and a standard all-wheel-drive system with an automatic disconnecting rear axle that contributes to improved fuel economy compared to the previous engine.
