the fiat ‘500X’ compact crossover is on display at the 2014 paris motor show to exhibit the brand-new dimensions introduced to the 500 family. it is available in two versions; one that is characterized by the dynamic, metropolitan style, and the second offering a more off-road appearance and functionality. the 4.25m long, 1.8m wide and 1.60m high car arrives with a choice of six petrol and two turbo-diesel engines that also comes with three types of transmission – manual, 9-speed automatic (a first for the brand) or a twin-clutch 6-speed automatic. customization in the form of more options is continued with both two- or four-wheel drive configurations also being applicable.

mechanics wise, the fiat has a dual clutch sequential automatic transmission that provides more driving comfort and a sport feel. it does this by allowing rapid shifts by releasing one clutch and engaging the other simultaneously. as well as this a smooth delivery of power is secured and the rear-axle disconnects seamlessly when switching self-regulatory between two- and four-cycle drive in order to have full time torque management.
