No, the 'L' does not denote the luxurious equipment of the existing 500. It marks more the attempt to use the for Fiat magic number '500' for a whole model series. Sun is in the 'L' so much more, more precisely a brand new car.

The normal Fiat 500 builds on the success of the Mini still in terms of rebirth of past successes, so the 500L is away from it however clearly. It is rather the third Multipla in the history of Fiat. The first was successful, the second is not, so it should go up again with the third.

The car certainly has the potential to establish itself in the family environment. It is large enough, even internally. Soft enough too, with relatively small seats. But if it does not disturb the biggest in the family. After all, there is again a row of seats that can be folded completely forward.

Also on the exterior has been paid much attention. No, especially styled like the Mini it is not, which is not necessarily harmful. The bottom flank protection is integrated briskly. Where it lacks is already no more present sheet but plastic. One wonders presumably also what is left over at this car, when the front end will be dismantled.

The exterior design is very clever implementation of the little on a great, where one hardly realizes that of the much smaller original model really no longer much left over. To this a pinch of Twingo cosiness and once again ready is a model where you do not really notice its size.

Only the driving pleasure is left behind so a bit, for here and in consumption the opting for a big car strikes without mercy. Since then also benefits nothing the flat load floor. But whether such arguments have a chance with the Family Council? 03/13               Top of page               Index
