on by FIAT USA

picture1 Driving the All-New 2016 FIAT® 500X crossover allows you to set your sights on adventure knowing full well your safety and security comes first. This crossover puts you on the road to fun and can put your mind at ease with standard and available safety features, including seven airbags1 and a steel safety frame designed to help keep you and your passengers protected on the road. It’s one of the reasons the All-New 2016 FIAT 500X crossover has been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ when equipped with available Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking.2   According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety: IIHS tests evaluate two aspects of safety: crashworthiness — how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash — and crash avoidance and mitigation — technology that can prevent a crash or lessen its severity. To determine crashworthiness, IIHS rates vehicles good, acceptable, marginal or poor, based on performance in five tests: moderate overlap front, small overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints. In the area of crash avoidance and mitigation, IIHS assigns vehicles with available front crash prevention systems ratings of basic, advanced or superior, based on the type of system and performance in track tests. To qualify for 2016 TOP SAFETY PICK+, a vehicle must earn good ratings in the five crashworthiness tests and an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention.   The All-New 2016 FIAT 500X Crossover features a strong unibody constructed with high-strength steel. The safety cage frame is designed to transfer energy absorbed during impacts to help reduce the chance of injury, giving you exceptional peace of mind. picture21 To help avoid crashes, the available Blind Spot Monitoring System3 helps to keep you fully aware of your surroundings on the road. It uses sensors to assist the driver when changing lanes, and alerts the driver of traffic in the vehicle’s blind spot zones with an illuminated icon in the side view mirrors.   For added safety and security, available Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking readies the brakes and alerts you with visual and audible warnings when it senses a potential frontal impact. If you do not respond, the brakes can bring the vehicle to a full stop.   Of course, safety and security is about those in your vehicle as well as the things around it. When it comes to backing out of spaces at lower speed, the available ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System4 will detect objects behind the vehicle and display their distance in the instrument cluster.   When you’re cruising the city streets or exploring uncharted territory, you’ve made a good bet with the All-New 2016 FIAT 500X.   Learn more about the 2016 FIAT 500X crossover and its safety and security features at fiatusa.com/500x, and visit iihs.org for additional details. 1Always sit properly in designated seating positions with seat belts securely fastened at all times. 2Applies to vehicles built after July 2015.
