After its first presentation at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, FiatFiatItaly, 1899 > present is now coming out with more detailed information about the new 500LFiat 500L 1.4 16V Pop StarItaly, 2012 > present that is reaching the markets by the end of 2012.
According to the brand, the 500L is intended to introduce a more functional twist to the popular 500 mini and combine elements of the MPV, SUV and compact segments into a new concept. The letter 'L' stands according to Fiat for three dimensions of this new idea: Large, meant as functionality and space; Light, means user-friendly technology and eco-friendliness; and Loft, a trend-setting environment.
The 500L is 4 metres and 15 centimetres long, 7 cm more than the Fiat Punto. It offers space for five passengers and their luggage of up to 400 litres. The rear seats are longitudinally adjustable and separately foldable. With the 'Fold&Tumble' function it is also possible to completely tilt the rear seat forwards to get a totally flat load compartment. The Cargo Magic Space system in the luggage compartment allows to separate different objects to protect them from damage.
At launch, the Fiat 500L will come with three efficient engines: two petrol (105 HP 0.9 TwinAir and 95 HP 1.4 litres) engines and one turbodiesel (85 HP 1.3 MultiJet 2) engine. The 105 HP Turbo TwinAir engine has emissions of 112 g/km. In 2013, the 500L will also have a Natural Power version with the Turbo TwinAir engine using a methane fuel system.
The on-board technology of the 500L offers a 5" touchscreen and UConnect multimedia system, to manage media content such as radio, mobile phone, Media Player, iPod or smartphone. Integrated navigation will also be availabe at a later point. The system also provides a view of the information supplied by the eco:Drive LIVE software that analyses the driving style and provides personalised suggestions in order to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The Fiat 500L also offers a sound system developed in collaboration with Beats Audio.
Designed by the Centro Stile Fiat, the 500L has 360° glazing. The glass roof is available in two versions: electric roof or Skydome. The colour range offers 11 body colours, resulting in 333 possible combinations of 3 different roof colours, 4 trim levels (Pop, Pop Star, Easy and Lounge) and 3 alloy rim colours. Another 'treat' Fiat offers to customers is the on-board espresso coffee machine.
The Fiat 500L is produced at the Kragujevac plant in Serbia and can be ordered in Italy and on major European markets starting July 2012. In October, it will first launch on the Italian market with others following soon. By 2013 the Fiat 500L will be on sale in more than 100 countries, including the United States.
