The Fiat 500L is the “big” Fiat, the automotive equivalent of the “jumbo” shrimp. Though large by Fiat standards, the 500L is still a small vehicle, and an ambiguously designed one at that. Beyond its sizable interior, the 500L lags rivals like the Honda HR-V, Kia Soul and Nissan Kicks in just about every other way, including safety features.
New Features and Revisions
The slow-selling Fiat 500L hangs on for another year, but updates are minimal for 2019. They include a standard universal garage-door opener in Trekking and Lounge models, and the introduction of the Fiat 500L Urbana Edition with blacked-out aesthetics.
