Fiat’s lineup is getting bigger, literally. Fiat has unveiled two new models that will arrive for the 2014 model year, the 2014 Fiat 500L and 500L Trekking. The 500L models expand the 500 lineup with 42 percent more interior space and room for five passengers. The “L” sums up the six dimensions of the 500L : leveraging, large, loft, lifestyle, light and liters.
“The all-new Fiat 500L the reach of the FIAT brand in North America and will keep our customers within the brand as their lifestyle needs expand,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of FIAT Brand North America — Chrysler Group LLC. “Those who love the style and performance that only the Italians can create, can now enjoy space for five, functionality, practicality and value. The Fiat 500L is the whole package, and it now brings its unique flavor to the American market.”
The 500L is powered by a 160 horsepower 1.4L turbocharged engine that is mated to a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed dual dry clutch transmission.
The 2014 Fiat 500L Trekking expands the appeal and practicality of the Fiat 500L with distinct, rugged looks; an athletic two-tone interior environment; unique front and rear fascia designs, flared wheel arches and larger 17-inch wheels to support its adventurous personality.
Both 500L models will arrive by mid-2013.
