Fiat reveals the new 500L
Fiat has today revealed that it is set to expand the lineup of the 500 series. The three-door hatch, Abarth and 500C versions are now going to be joined by the 500L - the L stands for Large. They have revealed two photos of the 500L ahead of the official launch at the Geneva Motor Show this coming March.
The five-door model is billed as an MPV that has the feel of a small SUV. It has ample seating for five people with dimensions measuring 414 cm long, 178 cm wide and 166 cm high. Power is provided by a choice of two petrol engines (TwinAir and 1.4-liter) and one diesel engine (turbocharged 1.3 MultiJet II).
It is described by Fiat as a further development of the 600 Multipla - a model that ended production way back in 1969. Let’s hope this latest incarnation can replicate the success of the old Siecento model.
The Fiat 500L will be unveiled to the public for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show before going on sale across Europe in the final quarter of 2012. We’ll bring you the rest of the info on the 500L as soon as we get it, along with all the best news from the Geneva show.
