It was announced some time ago, also through some indiscretions, and now it is a reality: the Fiat convertible SUV is on its way. Is called Fiat 500X Yachting and was presented a few days in advance of the first hypothesized date, namely 4 July (birthday of the Fiat 500), to take advantage of the long wave of social media.
The CEO of Fiat, Olivier François, has in fact revealed on his Instagram profile this new special series characterized by a summer and familiar soul. Its caption: “Welcome back sweet life! Tomorrow Italy reopens and the first 500X open air will arrive on the market“. The first distinctive element of the car is obviously above the driver and occupants: this is the retractable canvas top similar to that already used by the younger sister 500C. The device adjusts electrically over the two rows of seats, while the rear window is fixed.

The car will be produced in Melfi and is one of the few fixed points awaiting more official news. Among the other features that can be anticipated through the ‘social’ video are the blue color that appears unique to the model, the dedicated finishes with the Yachting logo (on the front wheel arch) and with that of the Yacht Club Capri (on the central pillars). The same logos will also be abundantly visible in the interiors, which feature inserts that recall the teak wood, typical of luxury boats, in particular for the dashboard and gear knob.
