Expanding on the style, efficiency and driving enjoyment that has made the Fiat 500 an icon for nearly 57 years, the all-new 2014 Fiat 500L expands the Cinquecento’s appeal by offering 42 percent more interior space with comfortable seating for five, engaging driving dynamics and a 160-horsepower 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine with two fuel-saving, six-speed transmissions. All this comfort and technology is wrapped in contemporary Italian design with a starting U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $19,100
With its recognizable Cinquecento exterior design features and a silhouette that is 27.7 inches (70.4 cm) longer, the all-new 2014 Fiat 500L provides more utility, comfort and 42 percent more interior space while offering a natural and coherent product extension in FIAT studios.
With recognizable Fiat 500 physiognomy — its signature “whiskers and logo” face — plus an additional six inches (15.2 cm) in height and width, the all-new Fiat 500L has even more presence while exuding the FIAT family resemblance in stylistic harmony. A “cab forward” approach improves forward visibility, while a bodyside of clean surfaces and flared wheel arches delivers a dynamic look. Since Cinquecento models maximize the views each journey provides, the Fiat 500L integrates segment-exclusive glass A- to D-pillars to provide an interior environment nearly encapsulated by 360-degree views. For even more scenery and style, a large dual-pane glass sunroof system along with a contrasting Nero (black) or Bianco (white) painted roof is available.
First seen on the track-proven Fiat 500 Abarth, now the fuel-efficient 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo four-cylinder engine finds its way into the all-new 2014 Fiat 500L as the single engine offering, delivering 160 horsepower (class-leading 117 horsepower per liter), 184 lb.-ft. of torque and up to an EPA estimated 33 miles per gallon (mpg) on the highway with either the six-speed manual or Euro Twin Clutch transmission.
The all-new Fiat 500L can be equipped with either a six-speed manual or six-speed Euro Twin Clutch transmission. Sharing a common design, both transmissions deliver quick acceleration while maintaining fuel economy. And with its first-gear overall launch ratio of 18.4:1 and precision-controlled shift points, the Fiat 500L delivers precise gear changes consistent with the brand’s fun-to-drive cachet. The innovative Euro Twin Clutch is standard on the Fiat 500L Lounge model and is available on the Fiat 500L Easy and Trekking models. With the Euro Twin Clutch six-speed transmission, the Fiat 500L delivers an EPA estimated 24 mpg city, 33 mpg highway and 27 mpg combined rating. Similarly, the Fiat 500L with the enthusiast-desired six-speed manual transmission delivers an EPA estimated 25 mpg city, 33 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined rating.
