Why Lease A Fiat 500L?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
Unlike its more sporty-styled SUV rivals, the 500L’s boxy design bodes well for interior space. The comfortable seats up front allow for a wide range of adjustments and, thanks to the high roofline, you won’t hear any complaints from even the tallest of adults seated in the rear.
The front occupants get a pair of cupholders and 2 large door pockets, there is a usable glovebox, and either 1 or 2 USB slots in the dash. Passengers in the rear get smaller door pockets, while front seat-back tables and a rear armrest are available as an add-on. You will also have to opt for one of the higher trims if you want a front-centre armrest.
The boot offers 400 litres of space and the boot floor has various height settings. Packing in heavy bags is made easier by not having a high load lip to contend with.
Low running costs are important in a small family car and the Fiat 500L offers decent, if not exactly stellar fuel consumption figures. The 500L used to be offered with a range of engines, but now there’s just 1 – a 95hp 1.4-litre petrol motor. Its lack of power is partially redeemed by a decent 38.7mpg fuel economy figure, and this does drop slightly to 38.2mpg on higher trims. It’s worth noting that turbocharged rivals like the Citroen C3 Aircross and Ford EcoSport deliver better performance and economy figures.
Fiat 500L MPVThe 500L is offered in a 5-door, 5-seater MPV body style. It’s solely available with a petrol engine, manual transmission and front-wheel drive.
The Fiat 500L Vs Competitors
The Fiat 500L has been on sale for a number of years, although reliability surveys have regularly seen it place below most rivals. All Fiats come standard with a 3-year, unlimited-mileage warranty, which is on par compared to similar offerings.
The Fiat 500L has a 400-litre boot, which is about par for the small MPV/SUV segment. The rear seats fold down flat for a total of 1310 litres of boot space and there is no load lip to contend with when hauling in heavy bags.
You get 5 distinct trim levels – Pop, Connect, Hey Google, Cross and Sport. We would avoid the base trim and opt for the Connect variant, as it adds the touchscreen infotainment system, and opens up a range of cool exterior colours and additional options.
All but the base trim come equipped with rear parking sensors as standard.
Very. It has a very spacious interior with plenty of leg- and headroom, as well as a number of clever storage solutions. The boot is of a decent size, too, and has a nice and flat loading area.
The 500X is slightly longer and lower, and is pitched as a small SUV or crossover. It’s less practical than the 500L as a result. The 500X is offered with more powerful engines and an automatic gearbox, but is pricier to lease.
