Apparently Fiat have been letting the journos have a play with the 500x Cross Plus (the AWD version) and its not too bad by all accounts.

The company hopes that its increased traction will help sales in US areas, such as the Northeast, where the weather can get notoriously bad so it really should perform well off-road.

Yeah, the Fiat Panda 4x4 is supposed to be a great little car off road, the new Jeep Renegade too so I expect this will follow in its footsteps.

Not for me but like I mentioned above I think it will be essential for sales in some parts of the world.

No, tarmac only. Maybe the occasional field for camping etc.
Four wheel drive will come in handy in slippy conditions too though, not just for climbing mountains.

That's true but I don't think I could justify the extra costs for my usage.

No I can see it's uses in places but I think the 2WD should be fine for my needs. I prefer the look of the 4x4 one though.

You can still get that look but with 2WD so you don't need to worry about that. It's called the 'Off-Road Look'. Catchy name eh!?
