- Latest addition to the popular Fiat 500 model range
- Fiat 500L offers added practicality to the line-up
- New model gets low cost petrol and diesel engines
The Fiat 500 will get a little more roomy and practical with addition of a new five-door model called, the 500L.
The manufacturer is making some bold claims about the car. It says the 500L has the passenger space of a people-carrier, the feel of a small off-roader but with the dimensions and efficiency of a small hatchback.
It will be available with a choice of engines currently available across the rest of the Fiat range. This includes the 1.4-litre petrol engine and the efficient and low-emitting TwinAir unit, which is already used in other 500 models. The sole diesel engine on offer is the 1.3-litre MultiJet II.
The Fiat 500L is set to arrive in the UK in the first quarter of 2013. Prices for the new model are expected to start at around £11,000.
Further details of the latest addition to the Fiat 500 will be available nearer to the Geneva Motor Show.
