Fiat 500X Alignment Specs

Fiat 500X Trekking

The Fiat 500X isn't your typical Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV). Designed in Italy, the 500X is loaded with style plus drives like a European sedan, meaning excellent high-speed stability and nimble handling that excels on the twisty, mountain roads of Italy. These attributes are achieved with an especially strong chassis made up of a large percentage of high strength steel, plus a sophisticated suspension (you can read more about this in the link below).


Fiat 500X Structure

Now that the Fiat 500X has been on the market for several years, owners will be bringing their cars into shops to have maintenance done, including wheel alignment checks. Below are the wheel alignment specifications for the Fiat 500X for your convenience. Included are alignment specs for both 2 wheel and 4-wheel drive 500X models.

Fiat 500X Suspension

Note:
The wheel alignment checks are carried out with optical equipment only after checking and adjusting tire inflation pressure to specs and ensuring that the car complies with one of the following load conditions:
  • "Standard 0" - vehicle unladen including spare wheel, tools, accessories and consumables with 1.3 US gallons (5 liters) of fuel.
  • “Standard A” - vehicle unladen including spare wheel, tools, accessories and consumables (full tank of fuel).

Micah Diaz and Hoonigan Abarth


October Fiat News
Micah Diaz of Corona, California was crowned the newest Hoonigan ambassador for the Fiat and Hoonigan brand. The two companies have teamed up for a second year in a row to celebrate the culture of motorsport.


This year’s grand prize was a track-ready Fiat 124 Spider Abarth heavily modified by the Hoonigan team. Among hundreds of entries, 10 finalists were put through a number of driving challenges over five episodes posted on YouTube in various FIAT models: the Fiat 500 Abarth, Fiat 124 Spider Abarth, and (in the ultimate challenge) a Fiat 124 Abarth Rally Car - FIAT’s factory-built race car. You can watch the videos here:
