The engines are expected to carry over directly from the 500L with a 105hp TwinAir, 95hp 1.4-liter petrol engine, 1.3-liter 85hp diesel and 1.6-liter 105hp diesel. 

Sales of the 500XL are expected to begin before the end of the year. 

Fiat is also planning a 500X crossover for 2014 that will use the same platform as the 500XL.
