2015 FIAT 500L What's new for 2015? 
2015 FIAT 500L

The Fiat 500L enters its second model year with a new 6-speed automatic transmission. Standard on top-line Lounge models and optional on the mid-trim Easy and Trekking versions, this new Aisin automatic replaces the 6-speed Euro twin-clutch automatic that's now offered only on base Pop trims.

2014 FIAT 500L What's new for 2014? 
2014 FIAT 500L

The 2014 Fiat 500L is an all-new car, and marks the second major model in Fiat's U.S. lineup. Compared to the Fiat 500 (aka the Cinquecento), the 500L has 42 percent more interior space.

About FIAT 500L

The 2015 Fiat 500L is the big brother to the 500, and though its name differs by only one letter, the 500L is its own car. Introduced just last year, the Fiat 500L offers much of what the 500 does not: rear seats that adults can actually use, comfortable road manners, and a more substantial presence. Think of the 500L as the more mature, versatile Fiat. Still, this 5-passenger hatchback is hardly stuffy. It retains the whimsical looks, good fuel economy, and Euro appeal that Fiat has conveyed since re-entering the U.S. market a few years ago. The 500L isn't as much fun to drive as the Mini Cooper Countryman or quite the bargain that is the Kia Soul, but for Fiat fans desiring more room, it could be just the ticket.

"Bought my Fiat 500L Easy a couple of months ago and I couldn't be happier! I am a musician by trade and needed a new car (Drove my Dodge Magnum into the ground) that would accommodate my musical equipment. When I saw a Fiat 500L on display at a local mall, it really caught my eye and I found myself at the dealer a couple of days later making a deal. After a couple of months of driving, I am thrilled with the car. With the complimentary tech package with bluetooth, rear camera, great stereo, hands-free operation, etc it feels like a great "bang for the buck." I love the roomy feel (I am 6'3") and it doesn't have a small car feel to me at all. I am enjoying the manual transmission as well cause it's fun to drive."

"I purchased the 500L Trekking a few weeks ago and I could not be happier. The car is peppy with the 160 HP turbo engine and it is a very smooth riding car. I used to have a Fiat 500 and that car was a little too cramped and the engine was a little slow. The 500L has a lot of interior space and much headroom. I am 6 foot and I have passengers that are 6 fot 5 inches and they have no problems getting in."

"Have owned this car for a month now, and both my wife and I love it. We chose the Trekking model for its unique design and satin finish trim. Bright and spacious interior, plenty of backseat room (back seats recline) and great cargo space with back seats folded down. Got the special package with U-connect, navigation and backup camera. I'm 5'10" and my wife is 5'0" (barely) and we both love the driving position and seats. I actually traded in a two year old Cadillac CTS! Worth checking out, a great value for the price and just "quirky" enought to turn heads. Doesn't quite handle the road like our Mini Cooper, but not bad. Very comfortable at highway speeds; quick peppy engine (although slight turbo lag on acceleration)"
