I think that looks great. I'm a little confused though with the Fiat 500 name. It is a lot bigger looking than the Fiat 500 too. What does the x mean that it is a crossover or that it has AWD?
I remember reading that the Fiat 500 would have a huge variations of it, is this maybe one of them? I personally would change the name though, but thats me.

I'll point out that the article said it would be produced along side the B Jeep (called B-SUV there) . So I would expect one or the other to have 4WD. My curiosity is the engine.

Kind of reminds me of the Dodge Hornet concept.

Here's some more info for you: http://www.allpar.com/cars/adopted/fiat/500X.html

Also, know that it has been announced that many future Fiats will be branded "500" but fit various niches, sort of like Mini's scheme.

It's been referred to as the "Jeepster" before..it's AWD.

The B-segment Fiat crossover is called 500X, so far. It is not based on the A-segment 500 but will be styled like it, much like the 500L MPV (with which the 500X will share its platform). The 500X will also share its platform with a new B-segment Jeep, which has been referred to as "Jeepster," although its name has not been released. Both the 500X and the B-Jeep will have AWD.
