Fiat 500X: 5 Reasons to believe in the new best-selling Fiat
With the Fiat 500X it facing its launch in Spain, it is time to ask questions, questions about how to fit the Fiat 500X on the market and what this can mean for Fiat event. We have spoken to the bottom of Fiat 500X 2015, we show you, first, live from Paris, and later tried in Italy, we have shown you a lot of photos and video. But, Reasons why the Fiat 500 is a good deal for Fiat in Spain? Why could be a real salutary lesson, the catalyst has experienced higher growth than the Italian brand in our country in a long season? We'll tell you then.
Everything they touch the small crossover turns to gold. And that means that the Fiat 500X could become, in all likelihood, the best-selling model of Fiat in Spain.
1. The segment of "hens laid the golden egg". Small crossover are trendy, very fashionable. While the minimum commercial and advertising effort, any model ose become the new "Juke", a phrase that, to us communicators, we love to repeat - admittedly - just winning. Although the Nissan Juke is the reference, veteran, now is not the most sold in Spain. In 2014 did not reach 10,000 units, figures are still spectacular, with Renault Captur which closed with 11,621 units and was erected as a clear dominator of the category. Fiat's best-selling model was the 500 - to dry - and did not reach 9,000 units.
Did you know…? Fiat already sells many units 500L and the rest of the range 500. If we add the sales of 500 and 500L in Spain we will realize in excess, loosely, to the sum of all models from the rest of the Fiat range.
2. Reinventing the Fiat 500 makes sense. And while you have it. Did you know that the Fiat 500L already sells almost as many units as the Fiat 500, to dry? So that's it. Of the 8499 units registered the 500L, the 8907 enrolled units 500 - to dry - is a small step. 500L success in a category is declining as small minivan, all it does is confirm that the customer demand style products with the Fiat 500 and a more practical view. If we add to that touch and attractive crossover fashion, the Fiat 500X could reap figures of scandal, excellent for a brand like Fiat.
3. Broadmindedness. The Fiat 500X will be erected around a fairly complete range. Not only that, Fiat wanted to meet the needs of two very clear customer offering two very different body kits together. There will be an urban style (see photo) for seeking a 500X without any pretensions; but also a country-style (see photo), for those who want greater protection of your body against the drawbacks that we can find out the asphalt, or just want to opt for a more aggressive appearance and Campero.
The Fiat 500X enjoy two lines, urban and other jacket. Also a range of really extensive and able to meet the needs of any client engines.
Four. Campero really. In addition to the wisdom of advocating two lines, one urban style, another country style, the Fiat 500X has other qualities that can turn it into a car, and I do not say off-road, but decent off-road. While some of its rivals, see Captur and Peugeot 2008, deny the four drive wheels, Fiat will not only have versions with four drive wheels, it can even claim to be - to some extent - a Jeep . Indisputably will share genes Jeep Renegade, although the Fiat 500X will not approach the cowboy skills more off-road version of its American twin. That of course. Not to mention the fact that in this category unit sales with traction 4 × 4 are almost testimonial.
5. A range of engines and transmissions modern, truly complete. Far from being content with two or three engines, as some of its rivals, Fiat has advocated a surprisingly complete range of engines. There will be options diesel and gasoline for all tastes, some new bill, from a diesel engine of 95 hp will be introduced throughout this year to a gasoline engine 170 hp and traction 4 × 4, very powerful for a model their characteristics (only Juke would remain ahead with more powerful versions). Fiat has used even to renew their automatic transmissions and advocating a modern ZF 9 relations. From the experience we have with this change - with a very similar rate used in its rivals - 9 Relations seem to us too, but we're obviously talking about a qualitative leap compared to the manual gearbox piloted used until recently.
