The order books for the new FIAT 500X “Opening Edition� are now open! Only 500 examples of the new special series will be available in the UK, offering customers the chance to not only be one of the first to own FIAT's stylish new crossover, but also to benefit from a host of additional equipment at zero extra cost.
Both flavours of the FIAT 500X are available: 325 examples of the elegant 4X2 “City Look� version and 175 examples of the rugged AWD “Off-Road Look� model will be offered in total. The 4X2 version is based on the Pop Star trim level, which usually comes equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels; body-coloured bumpers; cruise control; front fog lights with cornering illumination; automatic climate control; rear parking sensors; “Drive Mood� selector and the five-inch Uconnect™ infotainment system with Bluetooth as standard. However, in Opening Edition guise it is enhanced with special “Art Grey� pastel paint; 18-inch alloy wheels; the Safety Pack (Lane Assist; Blind Spot Assist; ParkView reversing camera and "Brake Control" collision mitigation system); the Comfort Pack (Keyless Entry & Keyless Go; front armrest and electric lumbar adjustment on the front seats); tinted rear windows and an “Opening Edition� badge – all as standard.
Powered by the 1.4 MultiAir II 140hp, the FIAT 500X 4X2 Opening Edition is priced from £17,595 – the same price as the equivalent Pop Star – but with a substantial £1,725 worth of extra equipment at no extra cost.
The AWD version is powered by the 2.0 MultiJet II 140hp engine with a 9-speed automatic transmission as standard, and is available only in tri-coat “Amore Red�. Like the 4X2 version, it includes a long list of extra equipment including a black leather interior with red inserts; Visibility Pack (rain and light sensors, power folding door mirrors, electro-chromic rear view mirror), steering wheel paddle shifters and, again, an Opening Edition badge. This is in addition to the HID headlamps; adjustable cargo floor; front floor mats; 18-inch alloy wheels; 3.5-inch TFT colour display and 6.5-inch Uconnect™ infotainment system with 3D satellite navigation which are already standard on the top-of-the-range Cross Plus model.
Priced from £25,845, the range-topping FIAT 500X Cross Plus Opening Edition offers an impressive £2,850 worth of additional features at no cost to the customer.
The FIAT 500X Opening Edition is available to order now in participating FIAT dealerships with first models expected to be delivered in May 2015.

I didn't know anything about it but this sounds like a cracking deal! It's the off-road look I want and I like the sound of the limited edition badging too.

“City Look” and “Off-Road Look” sounds like silly names to me. I think 500x City and 500x Country would have been more suitable.

100% agree, are those the confirmed names then? I thought I saw reference to some other name before?

The off road look is more of how I think a cross over should look. I don't even think they should have the two styles, surely this just adds complexity and cost?

So - have anyone ordered one of the limited edition models yet? Or are we all waiting to test drive one and poke around them a bit more?
I know I'm holding off.

I've ordered one - off Road look. It seemed more masculine in the metal to me. Went for it in red (only choice for opening edition), looks great and can't wait to get my hands on it.

Anyone know what the interior of the city look opening edition will be? Is it the dark and cream seats as shown on the gallery here or all dark?

From what I read you get a choice -two-tone Scuba black/grey or Scuba black/red fabric, or with eco-leather inserts

Hey all!
Is it not possible to order the 'City Look' Exterior with all the features of the 'Off-Road Look' such as 4 wheel drive and rear parking camera etc..?
Cheers

The configurator is now live on Fiats site, but I don't recall being able to select transmission as an option. I think its only on the cross plus?

I had a drive in the City Opening Edition at the weekend as a dealer had it as their demo car!I was told at one dealer there were only 300 of the City and that they were no longer available but as some dealers have it as a demo they might be available later. I was also told you can't add any extras to the car.

I expected them to all sell quite quickly as it offers a decent saving. Didn't expect the dealers to snap them all up though!
