Working at a car dealership can be so rewarding but at the same time very dangerous… you have so many shiny new temptations around you! By shiny new temptations yes I am talking about the cars. I am a sucker for European cars, I think they look sophisticated and are superior to their competitors. I am lucky enough to have been able to drive one of the new Fiat 500X (pop) a couple of times now and each time I fall more in love!
A bit of back ground on Fiat: Fiat was established in 1899 and their first factory was opened in Turin the following year. In 1957 Fiat released their famous 500 called the Nuova, it was a cheap and practical car. Fiat has always been extremely popular in Europe but over the years the brand has began to slowly gain a larger crowd around the world and even now in Tasmania.
In 2015 Fiat released the modern and updated 500X. It is described as a “one-two punch” having off-road capabilities while still having a city look. The model I was driving was the entry level called the: POP. Although it was entry level it didn’t hold back on all the extras and safety features. The Pop has a 1.4L turbo engine with a nine-speed automatic transmission this makes for a very zippy car around town with a smooth automatic transition. I get to drive a lot of cars at my work and the 500X would easily be on of my favourite cars to drive. Its the perfect size and gives you a little more height of the ground in comparison to other small cars. Parking is a breeze also as you have parking sensors and also a reverse camera. Don’t worry about safety either as the 500X has a 5 star ANCAP safety rating!
My absolute favourite feature of the 500X is the sound system.. Ever heard of Beats by Dr. Dre? Well yup, that is the sound system that comes with this car! There are nine speakers which produce amazing quality sound.The 500X Pop starts from only $26K drive away which is an extremely competitive price. If you are looking at updating your car soon then I would 100% recommend going to your closest Fiat dealer and test driving a 500X.
The 500X also comes in three other model ranges which are packed full of more extras and features:
- Pop Star
- Cross Plus
I recommend getting on to the Fiat website and having a look through all the model ranges and also the great interior view feature, it gives you a 360 degree tour of the interior! The interior is very stylish and practical also.
If you have ever driven a Fiat 500X or if you are lucky enough to own one I would love to know your experience and thoughts on the vehicle, leave a comment on this post.
