INFOTAINMENT systems are all the rage at the moment and Fiat is offering plenty of options for its 500X which has been refreshed for 2018.

The new line-up offers next-generation Uconnect with seven-inch high-resolution touchscreen, from the Pop Star trim level up, and offers Apple CarPlay and Android AutoTM as standard for a smarter, safer way to use your phone in the car.

The system has key features including Bluetooth interface with hands-free system, audio streaming, text message reader and voice recognition.

Android Auto offers access to Google Maps, with voice-guided navigation, real time traffic information and lane guidance, and Google Play Music, among other music services.The simplified 500X range is now available in three trim levels, combined with a choice of three petrol and two diesel engines.

The comprehensive standard equipment levels can be boosted with the addition of a number of packs, such as the cold weather pack, which comes with a heated steering wheel, heated front seats and heated wiper area, or the City pack to add electrically folding and heated door mirrors and rear parking camera.
