Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Though not perfect, the 2021 Fiat 500X is a characterful, stylish choice that is often discounted.

Pros
Italian fashion
Composed ride
Standard AWD
Good tech

Cons
Can get expensive with options
Active safety tech costs extra
Rivals are roomier
Gearbox can fumble

The 500X undergoes few changes for 2021. The base Pop trim and the midrange Trekking both receive updated seat upholstery and dashboard trim while the Sport model can now be ordered with the Sport Value package. The optional package adds a panoramic sunroof, 19-inch wheels, a Beats stereo system, LED headlamps, front and rear parking sensors, in-dash navigation, and heated front seats.

Pros
Cute appearance,
gutsy powertrain,
plentiful amenities.

Cons
Puny cargo space,
tight rear seat legroom,
high starting price.

Sport Value package adds a panoramic sunroof, LED headlights and other premium features.Pop and Trekking models receive upgraded interior trim for 2021.

Pros
Distinctive and well-made cabin
Standard all-wheel drive
More character and style than many competing small crossovers

Cons
Limited cargo and passenger space
Small touchscreen can be tough to use
Starting price is high
Several available driving aids, but few work well

For 2021, Mercedes gifts the GLC lineup with more standard features and more standalone options. A passive hands-free entry as well as a self-parking function and rear cross-traffic alert are now included on every model. Automatic high-beam assist and a 360-degree camera system are now available separately on a GLC300 without being bundled as part of a package.

Pros
Quiet and refined,
gorgeous and spacious interior,
more space inside than a C-Class.

Cons
Lacks driving verve,
limited cargo space,
most driver assists aren't standard should you want them.

Top prices approach $100,000
