In Europe the engine line-up for the 500X features a range of gas and diesel engines with a 138-hp 1.4 Turbo MultiAir II gas engine with front-wheel drive and 6-speed manual transmission, a 118-hp 1.6 MultiJet II diesel also with front-wheel drive and 6-speed manual and a 138-hp 2.0 MultiJet II diesel with 9-speed automatic and 4-wheel drive being available at launch.
A 184-hp Tigershark 2.4-liter with a 9-speed automatic and 4-wheel drive and a 168-hp 1.4 Turbo MultiAir II with a 9-speed automatic will eventually be added to the lineup.
The 500X offers a Drive Mode Selector that features three modes for engine, brake, steering and transmission settings: Auto, Sport and All weather.
The Fiat 500X will arrive in the U.S. next year.
