Fiat prices up retro 500L
The 500L range – a larger more spacious 500 with five-doors – will start at a whisker under £15k for the 1.4-litre Pop Star model and rise to £18,890 for the 1.6-litre MultiJet Lounge.
Pop Star adds a body-coloured dashboard, alloy wheels and side door mouldings "to appeal to a cool, young audience", says Fiat, while Easy gets rear parking sensors, a soft-touch dashboard and electric rear windows in addition to the standard equipment, "to attract drivers looking for greater comfort".
Top-draw Lounge versions get climate control, 16-inch alloy wheels, side mouldings, rear parking sensors, electric rear windows, a largest-in-class fixed glass roof, light sensor, rain sensor, front fog lamps and a rear armrest.
There's also the choice of four engines: 0.9-litre TwinAir petrol (105bhp), 1.4-litre 16-valve petrol (95bhp), 1.3-litre 16-valve MultiJet diesel (85bhp) with manual or automatic transmission, and 1.6-litre 16-valve MultiJet diesel (105bhp).
Due to its eco credentials, TwinAir models start at £16,409 – £1,500 more than the 1.4-litre petrol.
Customers can pick from a colour palette of 10 shades, while the options list even includes a Lavazza on-board coffee making machine.
Elena Bernardelli, marketing director, Fiat Group Automobiles UK, said: "Fiat 500L represents a new chapter in the history of the remarkable Fiat 500 range and we are confident that we are offering a fun yet versatile new family member that oozes style and personality, at competitive prices."
