Re: MPW 7 Seat

Our demo one arrived a couple of days ago at work & I was glad they decided not to send a white one. I think that might've looked a bit odd - the black does hide some of the proportions a bit, which is a positive in this instance.

The MPW badges on the door pillars were stuck on at different angles I noticed, which I thought was poor, but the regular 500L's seem well built so I'm sure the interior of the MPW will be just the same.

Saw the advert for it on TV last night too. I like the regular L more, but I'm sure it'll find a few fans because of undercutting several rivals on price & through its quirky looks, and once you look beyond that it seems Fiat have actually produced one of their most complete cars to date in terms of quality, driving, safety, equipment & practicality.

it looked better than a 500L imo, the extra length helped balance the height and bulk. an ideal car for families and if you want to carry big stuff.
i think it will sell well.
needs Multiair140 engine though...

Re: MPW 7 Seat

The roof colour should be in straight line to the rear to disguise that hideous kink at the rear most window. It looks added on just like a saab9000 estate.

Re: MPW 7 Seat

I think the 7 seat version is set to be a bit of a winner too. Trading on the 500 badge and image is a smart marketing move by FIAT in my opinion.

Although they are completely different vehicles the 500L's are really a FIAT 500 for the 'family that are too big to have one' and the 7 seat version takes it a step further.
