Fiat has unveiled the updated 2018 Fiat 500L, which Fiat says that 40 percent of it is new. Sales of the Fiat 500L have dropped off sharply since its introduction five years ago, with only just over 3k units sold last year. Will the updates breathe some life into Fiat’s largest model?
We have yet to see the US-spec version of the 500L, but in Europe the updated 500L will be offered in Urban, Cross and Wagon versions. Most buyers won’t be able to point out the exterior updates, but the 2018 500L looks a bit more aggressive now thanks to a redesigned front fascia with a new bumper and lower intake design. There’s also new LED lighting and the rear bumper has been updated.
Inside the 2018 Fiat 500L gets a new dashboard, steering wheel and infotainment system. The infotainment system also has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
