500l

Does anybody know when the 500L is going to be out ?. Went to dealer and he said next year sometime.

Can't find much detail anywhere on engines either.

My wife is keen on one after using a 500 for a few days.

She'd be better off trying a Panda for a better feel of what the 500l will be like.

Re: 500l

Thanks will give a Panda a go to see. She would like a 500 but we have 2 dogs as well, which she would struggle to get in a 500, so wondered if the 500L was a option.

I think the new-shape Panda should be fine for that purpose, no probs at all. It's only 10cm longer than a regular 500 but you can cram a whole load more stuff into it, trust me.

If you want to fit a whole family + dogs in then it could be an issue...

Re: 500l

I'd have thought a Punto would give a better idea of what the 500L is like, any relationship to the 500 is purely cosmetic.

Re: 500l

500L Trekking anyone?. Stretching it just makes the small wheels look even more stupid.

Re: 500l

We will have a LHD 500L Pop Star on the weekend of the 15th-16th December for viewing. I believe all Fiat dealers will have one at the same time, but you are welcome to PM me to organise something if you are localish!!

Thanks.

The new Fiat 500L: The L stands for 'Larger than most European countries.'

Or "Looks like a Mini" (and just as blummin ugly...)? I'd rather have a new Panda, thank you...!
