Car video reviews:

Body style: Van
Segment: Small MPV

The 500 L was the new addition to the Fiat 500 series.

It was based on the Fiat Punto and somehow kept its retro look. It was ideal for a family, having plenty of interior room as well as enough space for vacation luggage.

Of course, it was not as appealing as the younger relative, the Fiat 500, but it was highly customizable, by having a wide range of colors available to choose from, as well as different alloy wheels and not to mention the interior trims.
The 500 L had a softer suspension in order to maintain comfort and was definitely not the best for taking corners, but still felt secure due to a good grip. But what does “L” mean for Fiat? Headroom. Legroom. Trunk space. Versatile seats. Owners could load up to 400 liters. With the rear seats and the passenger seat folded, the car could carry long items. The Fiat 500 L was class-leading in its segment.

The 500 L was available in three trim levels: Pop Star, Easy and Lounge. You would expect the Pop Star to be the cheapest version, but it actually cost the same as the Easy trim. Both trim levels offered more than enough equipment, such as touch-screen radio with Bluetooth incorporated, electric front windows, leather steering wheel, remote locking and cruise control. The difference between them? No alloy wheels for the Easy trim, but extra electric rear windows and parking sensor.
The top of the range was the Lounge trim with climate control, automatic lights and wipers, foglamps, a panoramic roof and the most unexpected feature, a built-in coffee machine. That sounds nice, doesn’t it?

Four engines were offered for the model, 2 diesel and 2 petrol. The 1.4-liter petrol being the cheapest version buyers could get, however, the 1.3-liter diesel engine was the most efficient, having a reduced fuel consumption. The Fiat 500 L managed to get 5 stars at the Euro NCAP test, being equipped with six airbags, stability and braking systems.
