The 500L starting base as a 2014 model, giving graving Fiat dealers something that would have greater utility—and consequently a more extensive interest—than the adorable, however little standard 500. With four entryways and genuine space for four (there’s a fifth safety belt, however just those shorter than four-feet tall will focus on the back focus situate without dissension), the 500L actually satisfied a need. Albeit progressively tested, the 500L has respectable payload limit and is sensibly convenient around town. The Fiat configuration group looked to extend the 500’s charm to the 500L’s greater measurements, and, adore it or despise it, the outcomes represent themselves.
The power source is Fiat’s generally utilized, turbocharged 1.4-liter MultiAir inline-four. Pull—160 at 5500 rpm—is unobtrusive, yet the little turbo’s 184 lb-ft of torque makes it a good entertainer around town. EPA mileage appraisals are just so-so: 22 mpg city, 30 roadway, and 25 consolidated, with premium fuel prescribed. Fiat upgrades the 500L’s persona with a shading palette beyond any doubt to send your companions dashing for their Italian-English word references: Grigio Chiaro, Grigio Scuro, Verde Bosco Perla, Rosso, Rosso Perla, Mocha Latte, Bianco, Nero, Giallo, and Blu Tornado. There’s likewise a two-tone choice, with a Bianco, Nero, or Rosso rooftop accessible, contingent upon body shading.
Whole new qualities for 2017
Fiat has streamlined the 2017 500L lineup, lessening trim levels to three, in spite of the fact that the rest of the trio proceeds with a portion of the funkiest names in the business: the base-display Pop, SUV-like Trekking, and more lavish Lounge.The Trekking trim likewise offers a spruce up choice, the Urbana Appearance bundle. It incorporates 17-inch wheels in Matte Nero (dark), a shading that is rehashed as an afterthought mirrors, side ledges, and moldings; entryway handles in silk silver; and a differentiating rooftop. However, the greatest news is something that is gone: the six-speed manual transmission, which implies that every one of the 2017 500Ls have a six-speed programmed.
Qualities that is on your pocket list:
Most originators will reveal to you it’s ideal to make a polarizing outline than one that is dull, and the 500L certainly scores on that scale. The inquiry is whether the extremity is out of adjust—excessively solid on the negative side of the condition. In any case, the 500L has an unmistakable appearance in a market fragment populated by vehicles that look very comparative. Other solid suits: agreeable urban ride, great freight limit, and inside style medications that skirt on outlandish.
Things that you won’t like:
Thanks to any semblance of Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini, and Alfa Romeo, we’ve been molded to liken every single Italian make with no less than a touch of dynamic enthusiasm. Be that as it may, that attribute is basically missing in the 500L. The directing is rubbery, the programmed transmission takes as much time as necessary moving, body movements are critical, understeer rapidly heightens to stiff-necked, and throttle reaction and increasing speed are drowsy. Ride quality that is rich on metropolitan boulevards is not all that wonderful on asphalt punctuated by dreadful little anomalies.
Why choose Fiat:
While the 500L once seemed well and good by the small 500, the entry of the 500X—comparable in size and value, more spry, and with the alternative of more power and all-wheel drive—makes them inquire as to why the L endures
