The Top Gear car review:Fiat 500X
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
What with all the hoo-ha about the 500 city car’s cute looks and lusty TwinAir engine, one plus-point that’s often overlooked is how nicely put together its cheery interior is. The good news is the 500X enjoys the same treatment – there’s a splash of coloured dash to brighten it up and the dashboard buttons are clunky.
The driving position is pleasingly adjustable too. On the down side, the visibility is pants on account of the thick-pillared cutesy styling, and it’s not very spacious in the back. That alone will push families with older children straight towards the Yeti, Countryman and Qashqai, which make better use of similar dimensions, but without much of the Fiat’s rosy-cheeks charm.
