With its simplistic and distinct Italian design, the all-new 2014 Fiat 500L embodies the brand’s “Simply More” philosophy by reformulating its his- torical small-car ingenuity through modern Cinquecento (500) style.
Fiat brand history
From Dante Giacosa’s original Fiat 500 design in the 1950s to the “Simply More” principle Fiat Design has undertaken today, the design of the all-new 2014 Fiat 500L ties different moments and experiences of Fiat brand’s innova- tions with iconic style for a more spacious Cinquecento offering.
The Fiat 500L pays homage to past Fiat models and styling features, including archetypical design features that inspired the historic 1956 Fiat 600 Multipla. In addition, styling roots from previous models were included in the Fiat 500L project and hark back to the 1957 Fiat 500, 1972 Fiat 127, 1980 Fiat Panda, 1983 Fiat Uno, 1998 Fiat Multipla, and the modern Fiat 500 in 2007.
With its recognizable Fiat 500 physiognomy — its signature “whiskers and logo” face — plus an additional 6.1 inches in width, the all-new 2014 Fiat 500L exudes the Fiat family resemblance in stylistic harmony.
Similar to the historic and modern Cinquecento, the Fiat 500L features flared wheel arches and chromed door handles. Additionally, body-side door moldings are painted in body color and are available with chrome accents. Filling the wheel wells are seven unique wheel designs rang-ing from 16 inches to a sporty 17 inches with the “500” logo on the center caps.
The interior of the all-new Fiat 500L offers best-in-class interior vol- ume, thanks to 42 percent more interi- or space than the 500 hatchback. Fuel economy ratings are 25 mpg in the city, 33 mpg on the highway and 28 mpg combined with the six-speed manual transmission.
The 2014 Fiat 500L is available in four models: Fiat 500L Pop, 500L Easy, 500L Trek- king and 500L L o u n g e . Exterior colors include hues such as Bianco (white), Russo (red), Grigio Scuro (grey metallic) and more. With a starting MSRP of $19,195, additional information about the 2014 Fiat 500L may be found at www.fiatu-  sa.com.
