(First Drive) 2020 Fiat 500X Sport AWD – Subcompact Cross-Over SUV


Hello everyone! This week, I am driving the 2020 Fiat 500X Sport AWD. This is my 1st time test driving a Fiat product. Quite honestly, prior to picking up the Fiat 500X, I only know about the iconic subcompact Fiat 500 hatchback. The Fiat family grew and have expanded to Fiat 500L, Fiat 124 Spider convertible and the 500X, a subcompact cross-cover SUV.

My 1st impression of the Fiat 500X? It’s clearly different than the rest of the competition with a definite Italian styling cue from its Fiat 500 family. It’s a bit like a Fiat 500 hatchback being grown up and raised above the ground with higher ground clearance and bigger in size. The signature Fiat big circular headlights make this 500X super happy looking. And paired with the sharp red body paint? It’s a show stopper everywhere I drove on my 1st day. It’s funky, fun, cool and sharp! I like the looks. Fiat 500X comes with other trim levels such as Pop, Trekking, Trekking Plus. And Sport trim level is new this year. There is something for everyone but personally, I like the sport trim, it’s sporty and it fits my style.

Since this is my first drive, stay tuned for a more in-depth BLOG later as I will tell you more about my thoughts and feedback about this Fiat 500X Sport. For now, I will be On the MOVE to cover my 1st story assignment which is to drive this Fiat 500X to the Lavazza Drive-In Opening Night. This is more than a week long film festival starting from July 20, 2020 to July 31, 2020. Italian Contemporary Film Festival (ICFF) is having a drive-in showcasing films and talents from Italy and from other parts of the world. I am super excited about this event coz since March 2020, due to COVID-19 crisis, I have not attended any event in person anymore. Many events got cancelled or events were only showcasing virtually. This Lavazza Drive-In is a non-virtual event where people can attend in person but abiding all the city bylaws and guidelines and people can enjoy a film outdoor at the comfort inside of their vehicles while maintaining physical distancing.

What better way than enjoying watching a film in a drive-in setting in a sporty Fiat 500X? An Italian Film Festival in an Italian Fiat 500X.
