Italian cars are not so popular in UK. But all the UK motorists make an exception when it comes to Fiat 500, a true symbol of Italy.

The Fiat 500X Dolcevita makes its debut today, providing customers with the option of combining open air driving with everyday versatility and practicality. Priced from £23,975, customers can order the soft top crossover from today, with first deliveries expected later this year.

The 500X Dolcevita’s canvas soft top opens at the touch of a button in 15 seconds, even while driving at up to 62mph, and has been engineered to have an unchanged load capacity compared to the hard top 500X. It also ensures good visibility and an open-air experience, even for passengers in the back. The canvas is available in black, grey and red, to match the ten body colours available.

The Connect trim level is directed at customers who want to stay connected at all times. It comes as standard with the 7-inch Uconnect infotainment system with DAB radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™. New features include black seats, techno-leather steering wheel and 17” alloy wheels. The specs also feature blacked-out windows, fog lights, and LED DRLs.

In its Cross trim level, the 500X marries dynamism and its character as an Italian crossover, designed to get away from city traffic and to experience exciting out-of-town adventures. This version debuts new seats with a camouflage-patterned center panel, vinyl inserts, 19” alloy wheels, automatic air conditioning and parking sensors as standard.
