The 2016 FIAT 500X has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s top honor, being named a Top Safety Pick+ for the first time ever. In fact, the prestigious Top Safety Pick+ award has only been awarded to one other car (the Chrysler 200) in the FCA lineup.
The 2016 FIAT 500X earned the best-possible rating of “Good” in the side impact with a large SUV or pickup truck, moderate-offset frontal impact, small-offset frontal impact, roof-crush consistent with a rollover, and rear collision capable of inducing whiplash crash tests.
Additionally, only vehicles equipped with a forward collision mitigation system qualify for the Top Safety Pick+ designation. The 2016 FIAT 500X’s available Forward Collision Warning-Plus technology has earned a score of “Advanced” from IIHS, earning the 500X the Top Safety Pick+ designation.
“Delivering such features for less than $30,000 in a vehicle segment not known for such sophistication is clear evidence of our commitment to the democratization of advanced safety technology,” said Scott Kunselman, Senior Vice President – Vehicle Safety and Regulatory Compliance in a statement.
