A week in the 2020 FIAT 500X SPORT reveals that BIG Fiats… are actually pretty fun!

If I had to describe the 2020 FIAT 500X in one word, I’d have to say that it’s a Transition Car. Ok, that’s two words, but the point is… is that this Fiat achieves something that small runabout MiniSUV’s don’t. Not even sure the MINI does?

But as a small city car, the Fiat is easy on many levels. It’s efficient in that it’s 26-30mpg, it’s fairly cheap in $27K (Base. Mine was $34K), fairly cheap on insurance (as long as you don’t park it around a pole) and a nice easy on the eyes design language. Oh, and super easy to park ANYWHERE.

But many people make buying choices for different reasons. Simple decisions like color, seating, they had one before, cheap. One tag decisions.

But rarely do people make a buying choice on the simple fact that it’s FUN. In certain cars, you drive it, it’s nice and you get to where you want to go. But in the Fiat, you actually enjoy the driving experience MUCH MORE. It feels like a pet. Or maybe a tour at Disneyland on the Jungle Cruise or a launch on a Rollercoaster.

It’s a heighten sense to that something fun is about to happen.

I’m constantly impressed with the products that FCA is pumping out and it deserves some Coloring Book attention. A “BatFiat” is certainly in order, but until then… and if you’re looking for something fun to drive with your kids, your squeeze, your Virtual College Classes or just going to the store for Chipotle Peppers for you salsa, the 2020 FIAT 500X is just cool.

Interior-wise, EVERYONE is doing black, so avoid it. Try to be bold and get a cool Italian interior. Have fun with the build and know you’re getting something that will bring you and others some joyful driving.

And once the warranty runs out… SLAM THE HELL OUT OF IT, black out the windows, lock in a CAI, dual exhaust, twin turbo, pimpin’ rims and an explosive Italian pasta wrap. But, that’s just me.

Ok, so off you go. Stop fiddlesticking and get the the Fiat site to build one. And get the Hot Wheels version also so you can start visualizing…
