So, I've now had the opportunity to sit in and play with a static 500x for a couple of hours.<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px;">Its very well put together and the interior is very 'snug'. Found the pedals a bit off centre, but this was a left hand drive so might be just that. Generally very comfortable in the front.<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px;">The back has a very minimal - almost non existent transmission hump so the middle rear seat is quite comfortable if a bit narrow with 3 in the back. Head room is more than acceptable in the back too.<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px;">Storage is good with 2 glove boxes - one on the upper dash and one lower. They aren't huge, but 2 of them is nice. Lots of door pockets with drink holders etc.<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px;">Centre armrest has a deep storage compartment with a illuminated usb port - not sure if this links to the audio system or just a charge port. Its quite a long way back, so maybe not practical to use while driving.<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px;">
<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px;">The front camera and is contained in a large black section on the windscreen where the rear view mirror is, which I found a little intrusive and is in line of sight. Suspect this will be something you will get used to, but struck me as a slight negative.<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px;">
<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px;">The boot is a decent size and although the boot lid leans in, the space at the top should be fine for Medium K9 friends to travel without suffer squashed nose problems!<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px;">
<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px;">Outside, it really does look like a large 500 and maintains its charm and style unlike the 500L. The colour was arte grey (but not opening edition spec) which I'd say you either going to like it or be a bit meh about it. Don't think many will hate it, but maybe not a colour you'd choose. However, it does suit the car imho. Its like a dirty cream colour.<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px;">
<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px;">Overall, its a great looking car and the interior is very well designed and feels quality. I think its going to be a quite a hit for Fiat.

Nice little review, thanks! The camera is in the usual position on the windscreen, only a few other brands put them in the bumpers. You do get used to it but no good if you like plane spotting

Stu38 - Did you manage to see one at the weekend? What did you think?
