The 2014 FIAT 500L, known to many Italians as the Cinquecento, has now immigrated across the ocean and come to America.
This week in Baltimore the first few dozen Fiat 500Ls rolled off the boat and into the hands of journalist to test drive and review. Unlike the standard Fiat 500, the 500L is taller, longer and has four doors.
In fact it is 42 percent larger than the tiny Fiat 500.
In other words, the 500L is no longer a tiny runabout but instead a car that can serve a small family.
With a 160 horspepower turbo-charged engine and a starting price of just around $20,00…the new Fiat 500L hopes to expand the Italian brand in America
In this first TFLcar drive review, we see just how well the turbo-charged Cinquecento does as a much more mainstream ride.
