Ciao bella! What a cutie patootie you are 😍 If you haven’t guessed yet, I was talking to the car. The 2020 Fiat X Sport is cute and small but mighty. I got the chance to test drive it for one week and here’s what I discovered.

Compact but Enough Space

If that makes sense. What I mean is yes, the Fiat X Sport is a compact crossover but it fits up to 5 passengers! When I first got a glimpse of the car, I didn’t think that was possible until I sat in the backseat with my daughter. We had enough legroom (and then some) and were pretty comfy. Even the trunk has a good amount of space- 39.8 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down.

Plus, the backseat has one USB port so passengers can juice up their devices.

This car is perfect for commuters, singles or couples that live in the city, or anyone on the go wanting a smaller sized car. Great for road trips, too!

I had a fun time test driving the Fiat. It’s a comfy compact crossover with a sweet sound system (the model I drove had the Beats Audio Sound System). Every ride feels like a little joy ride 🙂
