The facelifted Fiat 500X features new light clusters inline with the styling on the facelifted Fiat 500 and facelifted Fiat 500L.

Fiat says the 2019 500X has an “all-new look”, but the mid-cycle update has brought only soft changes. The facelifted Fiat 500X features new full-LED headlights, DRL and LED rear light clusters that are in tune with the latest stylesheet of the 500 family. The new full-LED headlights are 20% brighter than the Xenon headlights of the old model. The Urban version has an all-new front and rear bumper design, while the Cross and City Cross have new-look skid plates.

Inside, the 2019 Fiat 500X has a redone instrument cluster with easier to read graphics and a new Techno-leather steering wheel which is contoured to ensure better positioning of the driver's hand. A new TomTom 3D integrated navigation system is available optionally. Fiat has introduced two new safety systems as standard equipment: Traffic Sign Recognition and Speed Advisor.

The biggest change to the Fiat 500X is the introduction of the next-generation three- and four-cylinder Firefly turbo petrol engines. These engines are Euro 6/D-TEMP compliant and fitted with Gasoline Particle Filter.

The range begins with a 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit that delivers 120 PS and 190 Nm of torque. This engine is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. Above that, there’s a 1.3-litre four-cylinder unit with 150 PS and 270 Nm of torque, combined with 6-speed DCT dual-clutch automatic transmission. Both engines come in FWD configurations.

As for the three MultiJet II turbo diesel engines with Stop&Start, Fiat has upgraded the SCR to comply with the Euro 6/D-TEMP standard. Their specifications are as follows:

  • 1.3-litre MultiJet II - 95 PS and 200 Nm of torque, 5-speed MT, FWD
  • 1.6-litre MultiJet II - 120 PS and 320 Nm of torque, 6-speed MT or 6-speed DCT, FWD or AWD
  • 2.0-litre MultiJet II - 150 PS and 350 Nm of torque, 9-speed AT, AWD
