For the past several years, the FIAT brand is tried to offer their customers more open-air choices with vehicles like the 500C and the all-new 500e Cabrio. Now the brand is adding a third model to its open-air palette of vehicles with the new Fiat 500X Yachting.
The Fiat 500X Yachting adds an electrically folding one-touch soft-top to the compact Italian crossover for the first time. While the 500X Yachting looks almost identical to the hardtop model, the fabric roof opens up the interior to the outdoors more than any panoramic sunroof would.
The 500X will be joined by a new 500C Yachting edition model as well, offering both a two-door and four-door open-air experience for the brand.
To kick off the launch of the new model, the 500X Yachting will launch with a Collector’s Edition with a special livery dedicated to the “Yacht Club Capri” and will come in an exclusive “Blu Venezia” exterior color with a blue soft-top. Mirror caps and door handles feature a brushed chrome look, while a blue and ivory stripe flows down the waistline of the vehicle. There is a new set of exclusive lightweight 18-inch aluminum wheels with “sea blue” accents as well. A “Yacht Club Capri” logos adorn the base of the B-pillar and the left side of the hatch.
The sailing-inspired interior features a set of white soft-touch seats which feature an embroidered blue “500” and blue piping down the sides of them. Aluminum door sill plates with the “Yachting” logo and a Mahogany dashboard are also classic nautical touches done to the interior. Even the key cover also comes with a new look, reminiscent of the vehicle’s body colors.
As for the 500C version, starts with the “Blu Dipinto di Blu” (Blue Painted Blue) color, a homage to the intense hues of the sea at Capri and to the world of sailing. 500C Yachting also has chrome-plated inserts on the front grille, mirror caps, one-touch blue powered soft-top, and a set of diamond-cut black 16-inch aluminum wheels.
Inside of the 500C Yachting, there is a set of ivory-colored seats with Frau leather inserts and the “500” logo once again embroidered in blue. Instead of featuring a dashboard of Mahogany, the 500C model is made from seafaring wood. Of course, the Yacht Club Capri logo is featured both inside and outside the vehicle as well.
The Collector’s Edition series will also be numbered for the first 500 units of both models. Those models will be sold in Italy, France, Germany, Spain, and Switzerland (sorry U.S. and Canada fans), and will have a badge with the country’s initials and unit number on the center console.
FIAT has yet to say if it plans to bring the 500X Yachting to North America.
