Fiat 500X Yachting (2021): the Italian falls high

After the Riva of its 500, Fiat is returning to the nautical world by offering a variation of its Fiat 500 X. Called “Yachting”, it is neither more nor less than a discoverable version of the Italian SUV.

Who says Italy, necessarily says Dolce Vita. From this observation, the transalpine manufacturer Fiat is nourished by this image conveyed by “Italian charm”. What to afford desires to take off. After the city car, it is the turn of its big sister, the Fiat 500 X, to be offered as a tribute to the world of water sports. After the 500 Riva, say hello to the Fiat 500X Yachting.

A discoverable version

The main interest in owning this “Yachting” version is simple. The Fiat 500X falls for the first time at the top. Equipped with the new openable body, it only takes a few seconds to drop the top and enjoy your hair in the wind rides. Be careful, however, as usual with Fiat, we are talking about a discoverable model. Not convertible.

This special 500X Yachting series includes a unique livery with a specific “Venezia Blue” colorway. A reminder of color found on the convertible top. Elements that contrast with the exterior mirror caps or the chrome door handles. Blue even predominates even in the finishes of the 18-inch alloy wheels.

Nautical atmosphere

As its name suggests, this name Yachting is linked to the world of water sports.

Like the small 500 Riva, this Fiat 500X Yachting also embeds everything that refers to the atmosphere of a Yacht. On board, we find a gear lever knob and a mahogany wood dashboard insert, white leather upholstery with blue inserts and embroidery, as well as aluminum door sill logos displaying the “logo”. Yachting ”.

In order to corroborate this special aspect of this Fiat 500X, a numbering ” One of 500 ” will be affixed to the first 500 copies. A launch of the special series offered in each of the main European markets. France including.

In short, perfect for connecting the port of Saint-Trop ‘in style!

On the other hand, there is a priori no question of benefiting from a hybrid version. Too bad because the little sister will benefit from a hybrid petrol engine with the 1.0 BSG block of 70 hp in its Fiat 500C Yacht Club Capri version.

To take advantage of it, it will be necessary to wait until the start of the school year for deliveries to begin. But orders are already open.

Price level, this exclusivity is paid. Count € 34,890 for the entrance ticket to this special Yachting series. An envelope that can climb up to € 39,390 for the diesel version. For comparison, the standard Fiat 500X starts at € 21,990 in its entry-level Cult finish, and already equipped with the 1.0L 120 hp petrol engine.
