With an all-new design for 2018, the comfortable, cute, spacious, and practical Fiat 500L retains those vintage aesthetics that have made the Fiat 500 series so enormously popular, and has injected a sense of family friendly practicality that ensures its appeal is wide ranging. Available in two editions - the 500L Urban and the 500L Cross - and three trim levels, and with a selection of engines ranging from cost-effective fuel economy through to those with greater torque and snappier acceleration, there is a new Fiat 500L that will meet the demands of all.
It’s undeniable that the appeal of the standard Fiat 500 can be found in its looks. The quaint silhouette and vintage Italian flourishes ensure that those with a taste for retro chic could hit the roads in style. Similarly, the Fiat 500L adopted the same design ethos, only this time adding greater levels of space to the vehicle. The all-new Fiat 500L takes it a step further, with the exterior styling featuring elegant chrome detailing, body coloured bumpers, and a front grill that almost appears to be smiling, such is its intelligent styling.
Inside, the cabin is all spacious comfort and premium finishes, with a dashboard that fuses both classic vintage appeal with modern practicality. What’s more, depending on your chosen trim level - Pop Star, Lounge, or Mirror - you can benefit from an all-glass roof that fills the cabin with natural light, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a Techno-Leather steering wheel with audio controls.
Speaking of performance, the selection of engine options across the Fiat 500L range is as impressive as they come. Two petrol and three diesel options are available, with each offering differing levels of power and fuel-efficiency. For those wanting to experience a punchy and responsive drive, the Diesel 1.6 MultiJet 120hp edition packs 320Nm of torque into its engine; while those with an eye on fuel efficiency will find the Diesel 1.3 MultiJet 95HP Dualogic’s 72.4mpg and CO2 emissions of just 104g/km particularly appealing.
Fiat understands that, for modern motorists, the need to have access to the very best in-car and driver assist technology is a must, particularly in a family vehicle such as the Fiat 500L. As such, there are a number of features that come as standard - as well as those available on higher-end editions - that enrich the driving experience. For example, a five-inch touchscreen radio with Bluetooth connectivity comes as standard (seven inches on Lounge and above), while rear parking sensors, rain and dusk sensors, and Uconnect LIVE functionality deliver nothing but the very best performance.
As a model tailored for families, it’s imperative that the Fiat 500L features a level of safety that provides utmost reassurance to drivers. With this all-new iteration of the model, you will find a selection of active and passive safety features that deliver complete peace of mind. From the six airbags to the Electronic Stability Control that provides perfect road handling in the event of any emergency manoeuvres, there are standard measures that keep you protected. There is also innovative technology such as the Autonomous City Brake for enhanced safety. This system detects the presence of other road users and obstacles and automatically triggers the braking system to avoid collisions.
