The charming new Fiat 500X 2016 is now available in Oman

The all-new 2016Fiat 500X, is the latest addition to the Fiat lineup and is now available at Dhofar Automotive, dealers of the Fiat range in Oman. The Fiat 500X combines the authentic Italian design and engaging driving dynamics that are synonymous with the Fiat brand, together with an advanced all-wheel-drive system, unmatched functionality, and a full array of safety, comfort and convenience features.

That’s not all; the Fiat 500X significantly expands the reach of the Fiat brand in the Middle East. It delivers the Italian design and personality that the brand is known for, along with an unprecedented level of equipment and technology. In addition, it is the first vehicle in the brand’s portfolio to offer an advanced all-wheel-drive system that will provide customers with peace of mind in all driving conditions.

With comfortable seating for five, world-class craftsmanship, and superior ride and handling, the Fiat 500X delivers driving excitement, technology, safety and functionality to the rapidly growing small crossover segment.

In Oman, the all-new Fiat 500X is available with a choice of the fuel-efficient 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo engine paired with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, with an output of 140 hp or the 2.4-litre Tigershark MultiAir2 engine that produces 184 hp and is paired exclusively to a nine-speed automatic transmission on all-wheel and front-wheel-drive models.

A disconnecting rear axle allows for reduced parasitic loss when all-wheel-drive capability is not needed, improving fuel efficiency. The Dynamic Selector system allows the driver to choose from three modes (Auto, Sport and Traction +) for the most suitable vehicle configuration for different driving conditions.

The Fiat 500X offers up to 70 standard and available safety and security features, including Forward Collision Warning-Plus, LaneSense Departure Warning-Plus, Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection. Electronic stability control (ESC) with Hill-start Assist and electronic roll mitigation is standard on all models, as are seven air bags.

Loaded with technology and convenience, the Fiat 500X is available with features like Uconnect 6.5 radio with a 6.5-inch (165.1mm) high-resolution touchscreen and navigation, Bluetooth streaming audio, Uconnect Access Via Mobile, a 3.5-inch (88.9mm) full colour thin-film transistor (TFT) cluster display and Keyless Enter-N-Go.

“The all-new Fiat 500X was designed at the Centro Stile in Turin, Italy, where designers leveraged the character and iconic features of the Fiat 500 into a larger and more mature package”, said Abdullah Kharusi, Sales Manager of Fiat, Dhofar Automotive. “On the exterior, design elements like double headlamps, a trapezoidal nose, the signature “whiskers and logo” face and the rounded clamshell hood pay homage to the original Cinquecento.The purposeful and distinct Italian design carries through to the interior with clever storage, body-colour instrument panel, a circular cluster display and iconic door handles of the Fiat 500X. We are confident the car will be well-received in Oman.”

The Fiat 500X is available as the “Urban”, and for a more rugged look, “Cross” versions. The Cross model features unique front and rear fascia designs, and satin silver accents for a distinct, adventurous appearance.
