The steel-reinforced safety cage with strategic crumple zones is designed to absorb the force of an impact, reducing the likelihood of serious injury.

Advanced Airbags

Every trim is equipped with seven standard airbags, including multi-stage front, driver’s knee, side pelvic, and full-length side-curtain airbags for a cushion of protection.

Rear Camera

An available rearview camera system lets drivers check for obstacles before backing up or parking, reducing the chances that an accident.

Driver Assist

A suite of available driver assist technologies help monitor the areas around the car where visibility is poor, adding extra peace of mind.

An Impressive Suite of Standard and Available Features

The Fiat 500X is one of the safest SUVs on the road today, thanks to a long list of standard and available safety features and progressive engineering. Drivers can choose from features like the available Blind Spot Warning, which uses sensors to monitor the vehicle’s rear blind spots and provides a visible alert if the system senses a hazard when the vehicle is preparing to change lanes.

Other features are available on select trims, like the optional full-speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking which scans for hazards in front of the vehicle providing visual and audible warnings if it senses a potential impact. If the driver fails to respond promptly, the system can apply the brakes, bringing the vehicle to a full stop and reducing the chances of a serious accident.

The available ParkSense rear Park Assist system monitors the area directly behind the Fiat 500X when the vehicle is shifted into reverse, detecting potential obstacles and displaying their distance from the rear bumper in the instrument cluster.
