The New 500L

I think it looks great. Not the car for me but so much better than the Mini Countryman in my opinion. Just disappointed to see another Fiat with an average review at just 3 stars. I'm sure they will never rate Fiat's very highly but can't understand why...

Hopefully Fiat will introduce the 1.6 and 2.0 multijet engines into the range and also the 1.4T petrol at some point as the choices aren't amazing, the 0.9 twinair, 1.4 petrol or 1.3 multijet. All seem a little underpowered for this size of car.

Re: The New 500L

i'm going to go againts the grain here and say i don't like it? i've got no doubts that its a good, spacious family car that returns excellent fuel economy, but ity looks so boring??? it might not've looked so bad if it had the actual 500 front end? i think it looks like something citroen would make, indeed i even think they do make something similar? not for me i'm affraid?

Your not going against the grain. There is a proper thread about this in the 500 section. Overwhelming result for the dislike camp.
