Despite the smaller engine, Pop models still have decent acceleration, thanks in part to the 500X's relatively small size and light weight. Despite being the most basic trim, Pop models still come relatively well equipped for the price. Standard features include power windows and mirrors, an electronic parking brake, hill start assist, steering wheel mounted audio controls, a 3.5-inch screen in the gauge cluster, 16-inch wheels and daytime running lamps.
The next trim level up is called the Trekking trim. Trekking adds the bigger engine and automatic transmission and makes all-wheel drive a $1,900 option. It carries a more rugged appearance, and it also gets unique 17-inch wheels, a 6-speaker Uconnect stereo, and a 5-inch color touchscreen display in the dashboard.
Lounge models ditch the rugged appearance of the Trekking trim and instead add some additional exterior chrome and daytime running lamps. Other features on the Lounge include automatic headlights, a leather-wrapped shift knob, a 6.5-inch touchscreen display, one year of SiriusXM radio and a backup camera.
Popular options on the 500X add items like automatic headlights, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, leather upholstery, and a rear camera and parking sensors. Trekking and Lounge trims can also be ordered the Advance Safety Package, with blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, a lane departure warning, and more. The Premium Package includes a dual-pane power sunroof, 18-inch alloy wheels and a 9-speaker Beats sound system.
The Fiat 500X comes standard with a host of airbags, anti-lock brakes, stability control and traction control.
