Fiat 500X

The little 500's largest sibling made a very brief appearance for members of the international press in Turin Italy. The 500X will follow the 500L wagon to market for the 2014 model year to replace the aging Suzuki derived Sedici, and will reportedly arrive in the USA at a later date. Follow the jump for more...

The 500X is based on the 500L, but it's somewhat longer at about 165 inches, it also appears to feature larger wheels and ride higher. The sheet metal is all new, and considerably more resolved than that of the 500L, it features black body cladding and appears to share it's frontal lighting with the 500L, and the rear looks like it might come from the standard 500. The 500X will also reportedly spawn a Jeep variant.
From what we've seen so far I really like this new crossover, It will be very interesting to see how it stacks up amongst the competition in the US market.
