Best Cities To Drive A Fiat 500X

August 31st, 2018 by

The 2018 Fiat 500X can be a life saver.

For instance, have you ever tried driving on San Francisco’s notoriously dense, compact city streets?

It can be quite the (mis) adventure.

There are steep hills to contend with, in addition to the city’s compact, difficult to navigate city streets.

Which is where the 2018 Fiat 500X comes in.

While Italian imports are notorious for being unwaveringly pro-manual in their transmission preferences, the Fiat 500’s Trekking edition throws this tradition into the San Francisco Bay.

The 500X features a Nine-Speed Automatic Transmission, perfect for scaling daunting hills like the ones found on Lombard Street in San Francisco.

Seattle
Among other things, the pride and joy of the Pacific Northwest is known for its urban-hipster culture.

We’re talking about beard balm applying, pressed-juice drinking, sleeved arm exhibiting aficionados.

As the originator of the rustic coffee shop, Seattle is as responsible as any other major U.S. city for cultivating the neo-hippie vibe that has become the hipster.

You can find the Pacific Northwest’s offering of these colorful characters at local Seattle hangouts like

Stumptown Coffee Roasters
Madison Park Beach
Linda’s Tavern on Pine Street
When getting around the inner-city, this set needs to fit easily into parking spaces.

Which is why a low-cost compact car like the Fiat 500X just makes sense.

L.A.
Few cities can match the urban sprawl that is Los Angeles.

The city (far flung by design) is comprised of 503 square miles.

(Keep in mind that New York City is “only” about 304 square miles in comparison).

While this sort of sprawl supports the melting-pot culture that makes the city great, it also poses its share of challenges.

At 33 HWY MPG* the 2018 Fiat 500X makes traversing Tinseltown so much easier on your wallet.

D.C.
Median cost of a one-bedroom rental: $2,200.

Basic lunchtime menu (including a drink) in the business district: $14.

One monthly ticket for public transport: $159.

Sensing a trend?

It’s very difficult to afford to live in the metro area of our nation’s capital.

And with these types of costs who can afford to add the expense of a pricey vehicle?

The good news is that you don’t have to.

Slip into an affordable driving solution like the 2018 Fiat 500X Pop instead.

Starting at $19,995, the 2018 Fiat 500X Pop enables your money to go a lot further.

Boston
Boston gets our vote for having one of the most bizarrely constructed road systems in the country.

On top of that, its streets are narrow and its population abundant.

This makes attempting to fit into parking spaces a bit like the ’80s video game Tetris

So how do you overcome difficult parking in Boston?

By turning to a more compact car.

Once again, the Fiat 500X appears on the scene as the perfect problem solver.

In Bean Town, as in the U.S. cities previously mentioned, the Fiat 500X is the perfect solution to cramped parking spaces.
