Fiat’s 500L – the big brother to the iconic Fiat 500 – has had a re­vamp, with a new S-de­sign model adding glam­our to the range

WHAT’S NEW? Most peo­ple are fa­mil­iar with the Fiat 500L by now. Take one reg­u­lar 500, pump it full of growth hor­mones and what you’re left with is the 500L – a com­pact MPV style car, or a com­pact su­per-mini with a higher roof if you pre­fer.

What­ever the moniker, it is in it­self a more prac­ti­cal take on the hugely pop­u­lar lit­tle city car for any­one with a fam­ily.

Fiat has con­tin­u­ally re­fined the 500L, adding a range of new mod­els and edi­tions, in­clud­ing the rugged and more Suv-like 500L Cross and an es­tate ver­sion called the 500L Wagon.

Now, Fiat has de­cided to in­ject a dash of style into the range with the lat­est S-de­sign model.

on the Cross trim level, the 500L S-de­sign stands out for its ex­clu­sive matt paint, dark ac­cents and wheels, which, when com­bined with the lat­est tech­nol­ogy, are aimed at of­fer­ing a car more suited to mod­ern fam­i­lies who want dy­namic looks and to stay con­nected.

So what you get with the new edi­tion in­cludes ex­clu­sive matt Donatello Bronze paint paired with black roof and My­ron fin­ish ac­cents, in­clud­ing side mould­ings, door han­dles, front grille, rear light clus­ter bezel, and door mir­ror cov­ers.

The sporty look is fur­ther en­hanced by dark tinted rear win­dows and new ex­clu­sive 17-inch al­loy wheels with My­ron fin­ish.

In ad­di­tion to the ex­clu­sive bi-coloured matt Bronze paint­work with black roof, the new 500L S-de­sign is also avail­able in metal­lic Donatello Bronze paired with a black roof and in pas­tel Dark­wave Black.

UN­DER THE BON­NET There’s good news on the me­chan­i­cal front, too, with the 500L S-de­sign be­ing paired ex­clu­sively with Fiat’s 1.4-litre petrol en­gine with 6-speed man­ual trans­mis­sion, pro­duc­ing 95hp.

The 1.4 95hp en­gine com­plies with the lat­est eu­ro6d emis­sions stan­dard, which means it is gen­er­ally very ef­fi­cient and rea­son­ably non-pol­lut­ing.
