There is no NHTSA review of the Fiat 500X so information is limited. Luckily, there are IIHS reviews for last year's model, which found that the car has a strong roof and offers good front crash prevention features. Luckily, the halogen headlights that used to be rated Poor are no longer available, as both trims now come with the better LED headlights. However, there are more extensive safety evaluations of the structurally similar Jeep Renegade, and it doesn't do well in the IIHS's moderate and small overlap front impacts - a pointer to the age of both cars' design.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
Despite its lack of extensive safety information in the USA, the 500X still comes with a solid list of contemporary safety features and active driver-assistance tech that should keep you on the road and in one piece. You get seven airbags in base form, including a driver's-side knee airbag and side curtain airbags. All models come with cruise control, stability control with electronic roll mitigation, a ParkView rearview camera, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, and hill-start assist. Front park assist can be added to the Pop, while the Sport comes with front and rear parking sensors as standard.

Fiat isn't the first name that pops up when talking about vehicle reliability ratings, but as it turns out, the 500X is pretty dependable: non of the 2021 to 2023 models have been recalled, and the 2020 car saw a single recall for a faulty right rear brake caliper. Fiat will back its 500X with a four-year/50,000-mile basic and powertrain warranty, a five-year/unlimited-mile corrosion warranty, and four years of roadside assistance.
