    The 2018 Fiat 500X carries over unchanged from 2017, except for the Uconnect 4 system being standard on all 2018 Fiat 500X models. The Uconnect 4 includes a 7-inch display and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, plus offers performance improvements over the previous system with faster startup time, enhanced processing power, vivid imagery, plus higher resolution and sharper graphics.

    I wonder how compatible the new uconnect system is with the older models.

    The new 2018 will arrive in showrooms late this year. As for ordering, you'd have to check with your dealer, however I had contact with Fiat USA on Friday and they did not have pricing available at that time. The last I knew, you didn't order the car from the factory, the dealer would look for a match at the various depots located across the country. and then the car is shipped to them. Ordering from the factory would take a long time because there is one factory supplying cars for ~ 100 countries plus the long journey on the boat. Things may have changed since that info was given to me, though, so check with your dealer.

    I'm hoping there will be some updates for our systems. Maybe not the Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, but I'll take any updates.

    I would guess that for manufacturing efficiencies, the wiring harness and mounting brackets might the same or very similar. In that you might be able to order a 2018 replacement radio and put it into a 2016/2017 model.

    Could be, but my guess would be the BCM may have an issue. Not many things are simple anymore...
