Fiat has unveiled the 500X Opening Edition, ahead of its launch early next year.

The entry-level variant features an Art Grey exterior with tinted rear windows, special badging and 18-inch alloy wheels. The model also has an automatic climate control system and the Safety and Comfort packages.

Two engines will be available including a 1.6-liter MultiJet II with 120 PS (88 kW) and a 1.4-liter Turbo MultiAir II with 140 PS (103 kW). Unfortunately, the entry-level special edition will only be available with front-wheel drive.

If you need all-wheel drive, you'll have to move up to the range-topping Opening Edition which has a 2.0-liter MultiJet II engine that develops 140 PS (103 kW). It is connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission and the aforementioned all-wheel drive system.

The range-topping variant also has an Amore Red exterior with rain-sensing wipers and automatic headlights. Other niceties include a two-tone interior, an electrochromic rearview mirror and a Uconnect infotainment system with GPS navigation.

The Fiat 500X Opening Edition will be available in Italy, Germany, France, Spain and Switzerland. Production will be limited to 2000 units and Italian pricing starts at €21,900.
