Is Fiat 500X a reliable car? Fiat 500X reliability
Although Fiat’s poor reliability reputation has been improving recently, the Fiat 500X came last in the reliability and build quality category out of the 75 cars featured in our 2018 Driver Power survey.
Is the Fiat 500X fuel efficient? Fuel economy is so-so for a pint-sized crossover, as the EPA rates the Fiat 500X at 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.
Is Fiat 500X good in snow? On snow, it is more so. Fortunately, the AWD system and traction control work very well. Even when the power finally comes through, the 500X stays manageable and is easy to maneuver. If you want to have fun, you need to keep the revs high and the traction control off.
Does Fiat 500X need premium gas? Like the 500L, the 500X Pop and 500X Sport require premium unleaded fuel. These Fiats have 1.3 liter 4-cylinder turbo engines, putting them in the same boat as the 500L counterpart. Premium fuel will keep the engine running to the best of its ability and maintain itself longer than regular unleaded.
