Fiat Adds 500L MPV and 500X SUV Variants to Model Mix
That’s the Fiat 500L MPV pictured above and now Carscoop is reporting that Fiat will add a compact SUV to the stable dubbed the Fiat 500X.
“The 500X will be based on the longer and wider platform of the 500L minivan, which is shared with the Punto supermini. Fiat’s sources said that it will measure around 4.2 meters (about 165 inches) long, making it the largest model in the Fiat 500 family.” - Carscoop
There is still much we don’t know about this supposed Fiat 500X SUV. We don’t know when it will be officially unveiled although Fiat seems to hint at a 2013 debut. We don’t know when or if it will make its way to Canada. But what we do know is that the 500X will be used as a jumping off point for a new, more-compact Jeep baby-SUV.
Overall, details are still very limited but clearly Fiat is an automaker on the move and their 500 platform is being maximized for a robust and varied vehicle lineup.
