I'm not satisfiedwith the rigid suspension of my Fiat 500X.
Every little bumpin the road surface is aching my back.
Is there any option to adjust the suspension

Low profile side wall and big wheels most likely causing stiff ride sensation, I read quite a few reviews on wheel/tyre combos before I purchased my 500x as roads here in Scotland have pretty poor wearing surfaces.

Change to a 17" wheel and bigger profile tyres.

Having said that I've test drove one on 18" wheels quite extensively and found it quite comfortable.

Change to ...

225/50*18 instead of the 45 profile. Will be a little bit better with the higher tyres and your speedometer will be more accurate!

Mine has that wheel and tyre size combo and I find it fine. Then I have come from S-Line and M-Sport suspension in previous cars.

I had an 500x on demo for a week recently.
It came with 41psi in 3 tyres and 36 in the other one. I set this to 41 as well. I didn't find the ride too hard or bouncy and also the "noisy" engine didn't bother me.

Have the suspension settings been retuned since the 500X first came out?
