Americans can still buy Fiats (with a fabric roof)

Americans can still buy Fiats, as long as they take a 500X, with the 1.3 liter turbocharged engine and nine-speed automatic transmission. New for 2022 are a retractable fabric roof on every trim levels, and in black, red, gray, or, for the Yacht Club Capri, blue. The Yacht Club Capri, since you asked, is a special edition with blue paint, exclusive 18-inch wheels, standard blue soft top, unique ivory leather seats with blue piping, and a woodgrain dash insert.

The media site does not have a photo of the 2022 500X, so here’s a shot of the engine.

Other trim levels are Pop, Trekking, Sport, and Trekking Plus. They all include UConnect 4, with a seven-inch touch-screen stereo featuring non-Fiat, non-Microsoft telematics.
