2017 Fiat 500X Model Changes

Fiat 500X Trekking

The Fiat 500X model range has been revamped and simplified for the 2017 model year. Overall pricing, when equipped with popular options is also lower than the 2016 model year.

Last year's 500X Easy is discontinued and now combined with the Pop model and the pricing is being lowered. The top of the line Trekking Plus model from last year is also eliminated and is now a Trekking with upgraded equipment.

Below is a comparison of the model year lineup and base prices.*  The 500X model lineup is going from 5 models in 2016 down to 3 for 2017.

2016 Fiat 500X Model Lineup
Pop   $20,000
Easy   $22,300
Trekking   $23,335
Lounge  $25,135
Trekking+  $27,335

2017 Fiat 500X Model Lineup
Pop  $19,995
Trekking  $23,335
Lounge  $25,135

Note the base pricing is the same in most cases, however, that's not the end of the story. Along with the simplified model lineup, Fiat is also adding content to the option packages and lowering their cost. In some cases it is dramatic.

Some highlights:
FIAT 500X – Savings up to $2,380
NEW 2017MY Launch – Simplified line-up with added value
•NEW Re-purposed collection content into new option groups
•NEW Options are now available on a Pop

•NEW Fully Loaded Trekking - now $2,380 less than 16MY Trekking plus

What does this mean? Now a fully loaded 2017 Trekking is $2,380 less than 2016 Trekking Plus. Now you can get an AWD Fiat 500X for under $24,000 or about $745 less than last year.

I'm glad they have done this, though I paid 24,000 just a couple weeks ago for my 2016 500x Trekking Plus loaded with dual pane roof and 18 wheels etc.. so the price reductions of 2017s still didn't beat a year end model sell off price. But the simpler option groups make shopping a 500x out much easier.

I bought my 2016 500X AWD Lounge Collection 4 on June 6, 2016. I now have 22,000 miles on the odometer. I have had no warrantee issues. The gas mileage has been about 28 mpg. The AWD system and 9" clearance lets you go in snow. I like the size of the 500X that provides plenty of room for two people, luggage, cooler and sporting equipment for a week vacation in the mountains. Beware that the 500X is too narrow to fit golf clubs in the hatch. I hope that Fiat Chrysler America will add AWD to the rest of the Fiat 500 models, and also offer manual transmissions on AWD 500X.
