    The seats are stylish, the instruments neat beneath and the dash-mounted switchgear classily elegant, as is the steering wheel. As a result, instead of it being instinctive, you steer the X reactively like a computer game, estimating the lock required, seeing where this puts you, then readjusting your line accordingly. It also spins freely and feels nippy, whisking the X from mph in a respectable 9. Upgrading to the Cross Plus adds luxuries such as bi-xenon headlights, sat nav, and keyless entry and start. Most of the mouldings are high-quality, although the rear door tops are hard-feel rather than the soft texture of the fronts, a subtle cost saving.

    Most buyers will choose one of the front-wheel-drive versions, although t he Fiat is, nevertheless, available with an on-demand all-wheel-drive system. The X range has been split into two - the City Look unsurprisingly aimed at the city dweller and the Off-Road Look aimed at those who toy with the idea of some light off-road excursions.

    The difference truly lies with the aesthetics, with the former gaining specially designed bumpers in the Fiat's body colour, body coloured dashboard and only available as front-wheel-drive car. The off-road tweaked X gets more rugged bumpers and plastic mouldings, roof rails and a four-wheel-drive system.

    The engine range consists of three petrol and diesel engines, including a bhp and bhp 1. The entry-level models come with 16in steel wheels, electrically adjustable and heated wing mirrors, rear spoiler, hill hold assist and electric windows, as standard, while inside there is air conditioning, USB connectivity and cruise control. Upgrade to the Pop Star trim and you'll find 17in alloy wheels, front fog lights, rear parking sensors, climate control, and Fiat's Uconnect infotainment system with a 5.

    The range-topping Lounge Xs add 18in alloys, bi-xenon headlights, a chrome exhaust, keyless entry and start, and sat nav. Those lusting after the more rugged Off-Road Look models, fear not, there are two trims to choose from - Cross and Cross Plus. The former gains 17in alloys, roof rails, cruise control, rear parking sensors and hill start assist, while inside there is a partial leather upholstery, climate control and Fiat's Uconnect infotainment system. Upgrading to the Cross Plus adds luxuries such as bi-xenon headlights, sat nav, and keyless entry and start.

    The more rugged-looking Cross versions get a textured alloy-look finish. Most of the mouldings are high-quality, although the rear door tops are hard-feel rather than the soft texture of the fronts, a subtle cost saving.

    The seats are stylish, the instruments neat beneath and the dash-mounted switchgear classily elegant, as is the steering wheel. Nonetheless, occupants enjoy the mildly elevated viewing of vistas that SUV drivers covet. Rear-seat occupants are well provided for too, even if the cushion is slightly too flat, the pay-off for having backrests that fold flat. In-cabin dumping grounds are fairly generous, and include so-called pelican-beak door bins, which are much wider than the average.

    So the X should play well to families. Rev it hard and it will get vocal but never harsh. It also spins freely and feels nippy, whisking the X from mph in a respectable 9. The ride itself is mostly pretty good, the X benefitting from a new platform shared with its Jeep Renegade cousin. A stiff structure and independent MacPherson strut rear suspension must help, the ride only turning choppy on scabby Tarmac. Even so, it still fidgets slightly over bumps, but a Skoda Yeti or Kia Soul are comparable.

    The Fiat is pretty tidy through the bends, too. It has decent grip and resists understeer and roll fairly effectively for a crossover. As a result, instead of it being instinctive, you steer the X reactively like a computer game, estimating the lock required, seeing where this puts you, then readjusting your line accordingly.

    For the most part, the X makes an effective and pleasant way to travel despite these flaws, its stylish interior serving plenty of space, practicality, comfort and the decent view of a crossover. And as we discovered when we drove the diesel model, the X fits in well. Fiat's X is treated to a midlife facelift following dismal sales last year. Is it enough to make the Italian crossover stand out?
