The 2019 Fiat 500X 120th Anniversary Edition is a special version of the little crossover that arrives to celebrate the long-lived Italian brand. The price for the upgraded look is $27,230 (including the $1,495 destination fee), and sales begin in the fourth quarter of 2019.

The 500X 120th Anniversary Edition comes with a black roof and customers have four choices for the body color: Grigio Argento gray, Milano ivory, Bianco Gelato white clear coat, and Nero Cinema black clear coat. Dark trim also covers the body moldings and mirror caps. The crossover rides on 18-inch wheels with a black finish. LED headlights are a standard feature, too.
On the inside, the only tweak is a black-painted dashboard panel.
The 500X's powertrain consists of a 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 177 horsepower (132 kilowatts) and 210 pound-feet (285 Newton-meters). It runs through a nine-speed automatic to an all-wheel-drive system.
Fiat introduced the 120th Anniversary Editions of the 500, 500X, and 500L for the European market at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2019. The design details are the same as the one for the United States, but the powertrain choices are different.
For the 2019 model year, Fiat has a few tweaks to the whole 500X range in the U.S. The exterior has minor styling tweaks to the front fascia. The cabin has an updated instrument cluster with better graphics for the 3.5-inch TFT display. The crossover also has Fiat's latest infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support.
Fiat is also simplifying its lineup in the United States by retiring the standard 500 from the American market. The decision affects the hatchback, including the Abarth, and the convertible.

October 10, 2019, Auburn Hills, Mich. - This year marks the 120th anniversary of the FIAT brand.
To mark the occasion, FIAT announced today the new 2019 Fiat 500X 120th Anniversary Edition, a custom-appearance package that adds a black-painted accent-color roof, creating a two-tone exterior paint scheme.

“With standard intelligent all-wheel drive and an all-new 1.3-liter turbocharged engine that generates best-in-class torque, our Italian-designed Fiat 500X is built to turn heads in one of the fastest growing segments in the industry,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT – North America. “This special-edition Fiat 500X offers customers a sleek, new customization option.”
