Fiat has released a teaser video for the 500X compact crossover, indicating the model will be revealed in a shortly while and will debut at the Paris Motor Show early next month.

The 2015 Jeep Renegade upon which the 500X is based was unveiled back in March at the Geneva Motor Show but Fiat decided to wait for next month's Paris Motor Show to show the Italian-flavored petite crossover. Attached here is a teaser video released today which shows the 500X will look a lot like the regular 500 but with a slightly more rugged body, an increased ride height, plastic cladding and beefier wheels.

Powered by a range of four-cylinder MultiAir and MultiJet II sourced from the Renegade, the Fiat 500X will likely be offered in the upper-spec versions with a 4x4 arrangement while gearbox choices will likely include two manuals, a dual-clutch DDCT and a 9-speed automatic transmission.

An online reveal will likely occur in the days to come, with a public debut probably scheduled for October 2 during the first press day at the Paris Motor Show.
