Fiat’s 120th Anniversary Edition 500X comes with a 118bhp turbocharged 1.0-litre FireFly petrol engine. Standard equipment includes LED headlights, rear parking sensors, 16-inch alloy wheels, black side mouldings and body coloured door mirrors.

As an added benefit, buyers of any 120th Edition model will receive a six-month subscription to Apple Music, giving them access to an exclusive Fiat playlist featuring songs from the Italian firm’s past advertising campaigns.
