2016 Fiat 500X Earns 34-MPG Highway Rating From EPA


WASHINGTON — The 2016 Fiat 500X, an all-new model in Fiat's lineup, returns 25 mpg in city driving and 34 mpg on the highway for a combined rating of 28 mpg, according to the EPA.

The rating refers to the base model with the 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission.

The 2016 Fiat 500X with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a nine-speed automatic transmission returns 22 mpg in city driving and 31 mpg on the highway for a combined rating of 25 mpg.

The EPA has not published official fuel economy numbers for the all-wheel-drive version of the Fiat 500X.

Arriving at Fiat dealers this quarter, the 500X competes with the Mini Cooper Countryman and Nissan Juke.

The 500X launches as gas prices are relatively inexpensive. The AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report on Wednesday pegged the average price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline at $2.63 versus $3.66 a year ago.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers get an important new piece of information about the Fiat 500X before they head out to the dealership.
