2016 Fiat 500X in Kenosha, WI
The new lineup of Fiat cars at Palmen Fiat will soon be getting a new face for the new year with the 2016 Fiat 500X in Kenosha, WI. What is setting the 2016 500X apart is that it is the first crossover SUV that Fiat has produced. Many of the models cluttering the crossover SUV class are nearly indistinguishable from one another. This would never be the case for a vehicle benefitting from cutting edge Italian design standards. The new 2016 500X will be almost instantly recognizable with its very familiar curves and eye lines that are congruent with the rest of the Fiat roster at Palmen Fiat.
Fiat fans looking for something different among the already iconic Fiat lineup, but are still looking for more capability will be very interested in the 2016 Fiat 500X in Kenosha, WI when it arrives to the dealership. Fiat engineers and designers have outdone themselves in combining nimble handling, quick throttle response of the Fiat lineup to a crossover SUV platform with greater capability for cargo volume and passenger room. Additionally, choice will not be an issue with the new 2016 Fiat 500X, the crossover SUV will come in five different trims and have 12 options for exterior color schemes.
More than just a bigger Fiat
The all-new 2016 Fiat 500X in Kenosha, WI that is coming to Palmen Fiat, was designed and built from the ground up as its own vehicle at Centro Stile in Turin, Italy. The exterior design elements pay homage to the original Cinquecento vehicle without being derivative. While the new 2016 500X has some similar outside features like the double headlights, “whiskers and logo” face and clamshell hood, the new crossover can stand on its own merits. Fiat engineers have given the new vehicle some teeth with an innovating all-wheel drive system that helps maintain its impressive fuel-economy by disconnecting the rear axle when appropriate and allowing the system to act like a front-wheel drive vehicle.
Fiat engineers have also included some of the automotive industry’s more innovative and advanced safety systems in the 2016 Fiat 500X in Kenosha, WI. There are more than 70 independent safety systems that are included with the new vehicle. Many of them are of the current generation of safety systems that are installed with the intent of preventing a crash before it happens. Fulfilling this new task is the forward collision warning, lane departure warning and the blind spot monitoring systems.
