Some days back, we reported in detail about the new variant of Fiat 500- 500L. Now, the news is that Fiat is busy developing one more version of the 500. The 500X will be a crossover and will debut sometime in late 2013. Like the 500, the 500X will be based on the Punto platform.
The 500X is going to be wider than the Punto and should replace the Fiat Sedici aka the Suzuki SX4. The Fiat 500X will be 4.2 meters long and will come with both petrol and diesel engines. While the diesel motor will be the 1.3 liter multijet, 900cc Multiair and 1.4 liter turbo petrol motors should be the petrol engines on offer.
It is not sure if this car will come to India but going by the premium image of the 500 hatchback and the fast growing crossover market, the 500X sure makes some sense to the country.
