Fiat lets the sun shine into its 500X compact crossover with a Blue Sky edition that adds a dual-pane power sunroof and satin-chrome exterior accents among its features.
Based on the Pop trim (which starts at $23,245), the 2018 Fiat 500X Blue Sky Edition is available this spring on both front- and all-wheel drive models fitted with the 9-speed automatic transmission.
“With all-wheel-drive confidence, best-in-class torque and room for five, the Fiat 500X is fun to drive and wrapped in iconic Italian design,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT at FCA – North America. “The new Blue Sky Edition offers yet another unique customization option for our Fiat 500X customers.”
In addition to Blue Sky Metallic, the vehicle will also be available in Bianco Gelato (White Clear Coat), Nero Cinema (Black Clear Coat) and Grigio Graphite (Graphite Grey). Among its features are automatic headlamps, fog lamps, 17-inch aluminum wheels and satin chrome finish on mirror caps, door handles, body-side moldings, fog-lamp bezels, front and rear badges, tail lamp bezels and liftgate handle.
Inside, there’s a unique blue-toned environment — blue-patterned cloth seats and blue instrument panel.
