The Fiat 500 lineup is currently made up of three models; the regular 500, 500C, and the new 500L crossover. Autocar is reporting there could be a fourth model on its way.
The fourth model is expected to be the replacement to the Fiat Sedici (Suzuki SX4) and carry the nameplate of the 500X. The 500X will combine the styling of a SUV and hatchback.
The 500X will use Fiat's small vehicle architecture with the 500L and Punto and come equipped with the 900cc TwinAir unit, a 1.4L four-cylinder, and a diesel. It will come with either front-wheel or four-wheel drive.
The 500X is expected to be also sold as a Jeep in North America and China.
The 500X will come out sometime next year with the Jeep model following a year after.
