The Fiat 500L combines the iconic nature of the 500 style with the functionality of Fiat’s design. Expanded on the concept of ‘space efficiency’, the new model defies the conventional distinctions owing to its MPV passenger space, the feel of a small SUV on the road and levels of efficiency typical of a compact car. By following this novel recipe, the Fiat 500L combines characteristics peculiar to different classes to offer a concept of distinctive and versatile first car that is an alternative to the traditional saloons of the B and C segments.
After more than 800,000 cars have been sold in 110 countries worldwide, today the 500 has grown up to accommodate new experiences and needs once more. If the 500 is the super-compact car perfect for young people and the city, the Fiat 500L is the first car of the 500 family able to contain the small pleasures and life’s greatest emotions all together, children, friends, journeys, music and community.
The Fiat 500L is totally new in the way it expresses its styling individuality, communicates with the outside world and opens its doors to a new on-board experience. The letter ‘L’ sums up the three dimensions enclosed in the new Fiat solution. Large, meant as functionality and space, Light when ‘lightness’ means user-friendly technology and eco-friendliness and Loft, a trend-setting environment where one can live life to the fullest.
Besides being comfortable and functional, the Fiat 500L is cool. It expresses the taste of Italian style with a distinctive look and interprets Fiat’s unique ability to conceive and design cars which are innovative in substance and in form. Substance turns into the concept of “space-efficiency” that distinguishes all of the most innovative Fiats in history. Just as the 600 Multipla was the forerunner of the concept of compact people carrier, the 500L is the new Fiat interpretation of the Simply More philosophy applied to the Multispace concept. The Fiat 500L reformulates the category of compact cars for the modern family in an emotional vein by developing some of the 500’s stylistic details in unprecedented forms.
The recognisable features of the Fiat 500L, marked by a body design that excludes edges and taut lines to favour “gentler” forms, refers to a “placid”, non-aggressive object that conveys charm and foretells a more harmonious layout for the urban landscape and environment.
