Dare to Compare: 2017 FIAT 500X vs 2017 Buick Encore

2017 FIAT 500X


Up to 25 City MPG*
Up to 33 Highway MPG*
Fuel is your friend on the open road. The FIAT 500X has the capability and efficiency you'd expect from a crossover with Italian flair. 

The 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine provides 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. This four-cylinder engine takes full advantage of the second-generation MultiAir system that enhances combustion control, improves efficiency and reduces exhaust emissions. It is standard on all FIAT® 500X Trekking and Lounge models and the AWD Pop.

The 2017 FIAT® 500X is the first in the FIAT family to offer the confidence of available All-Wheel Drive (AWD). AWD automatically engages when needed, helping to provide excellent traction and responsive performance on a variety of surfaces and conditions. When front-wheel-drive performance is sufficient, the system disengages power to the rear axle to help maintain optimum fuel economy3.

The available Dynamic Selector Traction Control System helps you make the most of the road ahead with three customized modes for optimal performance. Auto is calibrated for routine everyday driving. Sport provides a sporty, more rapid driving response. Traction+ maximizes low-speed traction on low-friction and off-road surfaces, for when the road gets a little slick or bumpy.

The 1.4L MultiAir® Turbo engine, standard on FIAT® 500X FWD Pop, provides 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. With equal parts sophisticated exhaust system and MultiAir induction system, this turbo engine delivers up to 25 city/33 highway mpg4 and an impressive highway driving range of up to 419 miles.

The FIAT 500X has a lot of top of the line features, to learn more about them visit the 2018 FIAT Brochure 

*EPA estimated 25 city/33 highway mpg with 1.4L turbo engine and six-speed manual transmission. Actual mileage may vary.   View FIAT 500X Inventory
