Fiat announces prices of 500L mini-MPV
Monday 10 December 2012
• Fiat 500L range will start at £14,990
• Includes three trim levels, Pop Star, Easy and Lounge
• Huge scope for buyers to personalise their cars
Three trim levels will be available, and all models will come with a touchscreen radio, Bluetooth, six airbags, ESP, cruise control and leather-trimmed gearknob and steering wheel. Pop Star and Easy trims cost the same, but have different features to appeal to slightly different customers.
Pop Star has a body-coloured dashboard, alloys and door mouldings to appeal to a young audience, while Easy gets rear parking sensors, a soft-touch dashboard and electric rear windows to attract drivers looking for greater comfort.
Top-of-the-range Lounge models come with climate control, 16-inch alloy wheels, side mouldings, rear parking sensors, electric rear windows, and a glass roof, as well as automatic lights and wipers.
Every version of the 500L has colour-coded front and rear bumpers, with 10 colours to choose from, as well as the choice of a white or black roof, and the option of silver, white or black alloy wheels. Beyond that, there is a huge list of options (including a Lavazza on-board coffee making machine), which will allow buyers to personalise their car.
Finally, there are four engines to choose from. The two petrol and two diesel engines range from 85 to 105bhp, with a start/stop system on most models.
Prices for the full range run from £14,990 for a 1.4 Pop Star to £18,890 for a 1.6 Multijet Lounge.
