An early mule for the anticipated Fiat 500X has been caught by our spies whilst underging a round of testing.

The development rides on a modified version of Fiat's small wide platform that already underpins the 500L and is likely to inherit its engine line-up as well.

This includes a 0.9-liter TwinAir Turbo that produces 105 HP (74 kW) and 145 Nm (107 lb-ft) of torque as well as a 1.6-liter MultiJet II turbo diesel developing 105 HP (74 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque.

The Jeep Junior will be bestowed with the honour of having its launch first while the Fiat will follow shortly after. Fiat are targeting a combined daily output of around 1600 vehicles per day.
