The Fiat 500 may be the perfect car if you’re seeking a small car with plenty of style, space, and value. Car Coach Lauren Fix has an indepth look.
Model — 2013 Fiat 500L Cequecento
MPG — 24 City / 34 Hwy
Engine — Standard 1.4L MultiAir® Turbo Engine with 160 HP with a Six-Speed Manual Transmission or Available Six-Speed Euro Twin Clutch Transmission with AutoStick.
Price — Starts at $19,100
The all-new 2013 Fiat 500L is not a point A to point B vehicle. Fiat has created an emotional brand that has taken some risks. They call their dealers “studios” that create an experience that consumers find appealing.
The design of the 500L is all about innovation, individuality, responsible engineering and accessibility.
The Italian-Designed Urban Utility Vehicle comes in four models:
Pop – Italian style, 6 speed Manual only: $19,900 (no options)
Easy – 16″ wheel, premium audio, leather steering wheel, huge sunroof, euro twin clutch: $21,995
Trekking – more aggressive style, utility and functioning, 17″ wheels, premium audio and different front and rear facia, two-tone interior, leather wrapped accents: $21,195
Lounge – this is the fully loaded model, twin clutch, special wheels including leather heated seats, fog lamps, Sirius: loaded $27,500
This is not an entry-level car. The panoramic sunroof is like a patio; the inside is sophisticated and modern, with optional colors and materials to create over 30 different combinations. The second row seats flip, recline and fold flat for more storage. The Beats audio system offers a great sound system with a Uconnect 6.5″ screen.
