Fiat is looking to add yet another model to its 500 range, with the latest variant to be a crossover called the 500X. The vehicle, when it arrives, will join the three-door 500 hatchback, the 500 Abarth, 500C convertible and the 500L four-door hatch (seen in the photos), which made its debut in Geneva last month, making it five in the family.

The crossover, which will sit on a widened version of the Punto platform, will be the longest model in the range at around 4.2 metres long, and is set to replace the Sedici in the Fiat lineup, according to reports.

Production is slated to begin in December next year at the company’s Mirafiori factory in Turin, making the vehicle the first 500 variant to be built in Italy. It’ll be available in both 2WD and all-wheel-drive versions.

Engine choices for the European market will be a 900 cc two-cylinder and 1.4 litre petrol mills, as well as a 1.3 litre MultiJet II diesel. The reports add that a Jeep sister model, code-named the B-SUV, will be built alongside the 500X, with production for that one set to begin in the second quarter of 2014.
