2016 Fiat 500X interior design

Seven interior environments are available, with a variety of colors and fabrics, including Nero/Rosso (black/red) cloth seats, Testa di Moro/Grigio (dark brown/gray) premium cloth seats and Cuoio Anticato (Tobacco) premium leather seats.
The instrument cluster features a standard monochrome and available color 3.5-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) cluster display, which allows drivers to customize and monitor information like fuel economy, outside temperature and driving range. At the center, the Fiat 500X is available with the Uconnect 5.0 or 6.5 radio system, providing passengers with information and connectivity options on a 5-inch or 6.5-inch touchscreen.

Clever storage adds to the functionality of the 500X, including a dual glove box with a locking lower portion, center console storage and a bin at the base of the center stack that allows for storage and connectivity.
