Fiat has not considered upgrading the city cars for a very long time.
The Fiat 500 received a revamp a couple of years ago and finally the automobile manufacturer has now turned their attention towards the 2017 Fiat 500L which is the bigger model.
The mini MPV is a unique car of its own with a very peculiar design and is scheduled to go sale in a couple of months. While the car has been spied in many photographs in the past, the newly released images showcase a highly stylish variant in the making. The front grille has been fully redesigned to make it look less box-like while a new pair of bumpers adorn the front and rear end.
The 2017 Fiat 500L is equipped with LED daytime running lights which is already being used in the smaller 500 model. When combined with fog lights and reversing lights, it becomes the perfect combo for long drives in varying climate conditions. In order to make the model an appealing choice for people who love fancy colors, the company provides a total of 37 different combinations to choose from which is more than enough to keep things interesting.
A total of three different variants of the 500L is scheduled to be launched in dealership stores. The first one is the Urban car designed for the streets and next in the line is the Wagon. The latter is a longer version of the 500L which houses seven seats and the third variant provided by the automobile manufacturer is the Cross designed specifically for trekking. It is made to be rugged and to withstand the demanding conditions of mountains with an increased ride height of 25mm. A traction enhanced driving mode is part of the car which uses a Gravity Control system to provide ultimate control during a hill descent.
The inside of the 2017 Fiat 500L is packed to the brim with a wide range of features including full support for Apple Car Play, Android Auto and a large 7-inch display with Fiat’s own UConnect HD Live navigation system. It also includes many comfort inducing additions like ambient lighting, central armrest, new color choices and an amazing interior materials that provide the exquisite look to this rugged wagon.
All the safety measures that one would expect from a car of this class can be found in the new 500L. There’s a rear view camera, automatic emergency braking and the like. It is powered by a 1.4-liter engine that produces 94hp and another 0.9-liter model which renders 103hp.
