Parkers overall rating: 3.8 out of 5 3.8
  • Fairly large boot with split floor
  • Shouldn’t prove too difficult to park
  • Cabin will seat four with ease

Although not as spacious as some other bigger SUVs, for its class the 500X is very good indeed with enough room for four adults to sit in comfort. Plus there are plenty of cubbies to place your personal items like your smartphone, wallet and keys as well as a useful dual glove compartment with two separate areas to store items. Cupholders cater for four occupants.

Depending on trim the front centre armrest can also be equipped with a handy storage compartment. In the back there are nets behind the rear seats and various cubbies to store items, too.

How big is it on the outside?

The 500X isn’t a large car, with a footprint no bigger than a mid-sized family hatchback. Its high driving position means excellent visibility, while higher trim levels get acoustic parking sensors to help work out how close objects are around the car.

What's the luggage capacity like?

Fiat 500X luggage capacity

The boot is a fair size with 350 litres available, the same as the MINI Countryman (with a 450-litre boot), which is easily big enough for the weekly shop or a couple of medium sized suitcases. The rear seats fold down easily too in a 60:40 format expanding boot volume to 1,000 litres.

There is an optional split floor for the boot which is reversible and height-adjustable, meaning you can securely store your more valuable items while on the move.

Fiat 500X safety

With four stars during its Euro NCAP crash tests in 2015, you’d be forgiven for expecting the 500X would fare badly when it comes to safety, but that’s not the case. In fact, thanks to its facelift in 2018, it’s among the safer small cars around. The newer 500X hasn't been tested by Euro NCAP, though, and is unlikely to be now.

All versions post-update get Traffic Sign Recognition with an integrated speed limiter, so you’re physically unable to accelerate quicker than the posted limit (though it’s switchable in case you don’t want it). Active lane-keeping technology features too, alongside a suite of six airbags. As you move up the range the following become available:

  • LED headlights
  • Automatic headlights and wipers
  • Rear-view parking camera
  • Automatic low-speed braking
  • Blindspot alert
  • Adaptive cruise control

Euro NCAP Rating – 4 stars

The Fiat 500X was tested by Euro NCAP in 2015 and was awarded a 4 star overall rating. This overall rating is calculated from the following individual ratings:

4 star rating
Test 2015
Individual safety ratings
Adult Occupant: 86%
Child Occupant: 85%
Pedestrian: 74%
Safety Assist: 64%

Euro NCAP provides motoring consumers with a realistic and independent assessment of the safety performance of some of the most popular cars sold in Europe. The safety ratings are determined from a series of vehicle tests, designed and carried out by Euro NCAP. These tests represent, in a simplified way, important real life accident scenarios that could result in injured or killed car occupants or other road users.
