Finding a car that performs as well within the city as it does without is tough, but it looks like Fiat might have cracked it. In town you need something compact that handles well and wards off the dangers of the urban landscape, while beyond the suburbs more heft, comfort and performance are required.

Roll forward the new Fiat 500X, which is available in two models: City and Off-Road. The latter is available in all-wheel-drive, but both are packed with the features you need to get the most from the drive. Take the class-leading, nine-speed automatic transmission, or the brake control collision mitigation that keeps an eye on the road ahead, even at speeds of 120mph. Then there's the Traction+ system, which uses the brake control system to optimise torque distribution, and even a rear camera that comes to life when you shift into reverse.

Its engineering is exceptional, but the Fiat 500X's modernism is where it really excels. An extension of the driver, the Uconnect infotainment system not only offers access to over 100,000 digital radio stations, 4m podcasts and 35m songs on Deezer, it also fires out Reuters news updates on your preferred topics and can even check you in on Facebook.

Marry all the above with elegant Italian styling and the Fiat 500X is hard to beat. So, whether you're driving into the city for dinner, getting out of town for a weekend, or just popping out for a pint of milk, why compromise?
