Mopar has a long tradition of offering performance and aesthetic goodies to various Chrysler vehicles, but when Fiat bought out the American automaker, Mopar suddenly gained a new lineup of canvases to paint upon. The latest of those canvases is the 500X subcompact crossover, and Chrysler’s tuning arm has just announced the bits it will offer for the Italian crossover.

Altogether, Mopar offers more than 100 items for the 2016 Fiat 500X, and they range in price from under $20 to nearly $2,000. While I would love to sit here and list them all out, I will simply highlight the most important ones.

The most striking option on the outside, buyers can choose from 14 graphics packs, including the special “Rebel” graphics that includes a red hood, roof and spoiler graphics, and red and grey body-side graphics. These graphics range from $100 to $495. Buyers can also choose front and rear splashguards for less than $50, custom color combinations that range from $95 for the mirror caps to $315 for the body-side molding, Fiat valve-stem covers for $18, various fender badges for $19.50, 500-badged license plate covers for $38, and a chrome hood “spear” for $95.

Buyers can change out the rolling stock for 18-inch wheels in four colors. These run $1,100 For a set of four.

In-cabin goodies from Mopar consist of leather Katzkin seats ranging from $813 to $1,775, slush mats for $85, a cargo tray for $75, the Mopar Web Wi-Fi module and wiring harness for $495, and a spare tire kit, which includes a spare tire, a jack, a screwdriver, a tie-down and a bag, for $295.

For buyers who want a sportier sound from their 500, Mopar is also offering up a cat-back exhaust system for $995.

For added safety, Mopar offers its Electronic Vehicle Tracking System, GPS-enabled stolen-vehicle recovery system. This system bases at $499. Other security features start from $149 and go up to $463.

Finally, for folks who like to haul stuff around in or on their 500X, Mopar also offers racks and carriers for bicycles, skis, snowboards, luggage, etc. The carriers start at $50 and continue up to $579, but they also require the $355 roof rails and the $163 crossbars.

That’s a lot of customization for the tiny Fiat 500X.
