The Fiat 500L is the newest addition to the Fiat 500 family, offering a mix of style and practicality
it combines the same retro-inspired styling and light, easy drive with a dose of practicality.
The Fiat 500L rides on a platform derived from the Punto and is 414cm long – that’s around 59cm longer than
the standard 500. All that extra room means space for five tall adults inside, plus a 400-litre boot for lots of
Practicality is the 500L’s forte, and Fiat has worked hard to ensure the car is family friendly. The boot is
adjustable on three levels, while the rear seats all slide back and forth, and split-fold 60:40, too.
Owners will also be able to fold down the front passenger seat and there are 22 different storage
spaces dotted throughout the car.
The 500L stands out because it boasts the kind of style most small MPVs can only dream of. It’s also impressively
comfortable and practical and, it’s good value, too.
Launch date April 2013..
