Fiat goes Large for next 500
LARGE PETITE: The 500L will be unveiled on March 6, 2012, at the Geneva Auto Show.
The next model in a burgeoning Fiat 500 range will makes its debut on March 6 at the 2012 Geneva auto show.
The 500L – where L stands for Large – is the new addition to the 500 range following the roll-out of the Cabrio and (recently launched in SA) Abarth versions.
Fiat considers the 500L a “distinctive alternative to the traditional B and C segments” and the functional five-seater’s body is 414cm long, 178cm wide and 166cm high.
Its engine range will comprise two petrol engines – the award-winning 875cc TwinAir and a 1.4-litre – and a 1.3-litre Multijet turbodiesel.
The small MPV will be built at Fiat’s Kragujevac, Serbia, facility and will be introduced to Europe later in 2012.
MINI MOVER: The mini MPV with SUV ambitions will be powered by a range of award-winning engines.
