Why The 2014 Fiat 500l Is Really A Family Car

If you are in the market for a new family car that you can use to commute to work, the new 2014 Fiat 500L family car is definitely an option you should consider. Fiat has introduced this car into the North American market this year as an alternative to the standard 4-door hatchback. Its unique styling and design make it a car that will meet all of your daily needs while helping you stand out from the crowd.



How can a Fiat be a family car?

The new Fiat 500L was designed with the family of four in mind. Getting in and out of the 500L has been made easier by the addition of high-mounted seats, larger doors, and a spacious interior. The 500L has been designed to be significantly bigger than the smaller 500 model. It is over two feet longer and almost six inches taller and wider. Adjustable and reclining rear seats also provide plenty of leg room for passengers in the back.



With the adjustable rear seats and open interior the 500L provides enough space for a family of four, or even five, as there is room to seat three children in the back seat. Cargo space has not been neglected either. With the back seat up there is 23.1 cubic feet of space in the rear, about the same as a standard refrigerator. When more cargo space is needed, the back seats can be folded down to provide approximately 65 cubic foot space.



How does it ride and what about gas mileage?

Despite its large interior the 500L is still a small car and is expected to get about 25 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. The 500L has a turbocharged 1.4L, 4-cylinder engine that produces 184 lb-ft of torque. The engine produces plenty of power for in-town driving and will handle the highway well. It has a wheel-base that is about a foot longer than the smaller 500, which helps to give it a smooth ride. The 500L’s weight, a surprising 3,254 pounds, also helps to stabilize its ride.



What are the car’s features?

The 500L can be purchased in four models, the Pop, Easy, Trekking, and Lounge. A base version of the Pop model will cost a little under $20,000 and fully loaded version of the Lounge will top out at about $28,000. All models are front wheel drive and have the same engine. The Pop model is only available with a 6-speed manual transmission, but all others have a dual-clutch 6-speed automatic transmission as an option. The automatic transmission is standard in the Lounge model. The Trekking model comes with a standard wheel height of 17 inches and all other models have 16 inch wheels standard. The Lounge model has the 17 inch wheel as an option.



All models come with power locks, adjustable seats, remote entry, cruise control, and a touch-screen controlled Uconnect infotainment system from Chrysler. The 500L has 7 airbags, and all-disc antilock brakes. Upgrades can give you a larger touch-screen interface, a better sound system, and higher quality interior materials. A panoramic moon roof is also available.



Overall the 2014 Fiat 500L is a family car that stayed true to its compact car roots. A large interior gives plenty of room for children and transporting things, with a gas mileage rating that makes it economical. It is small in size, but makes it ideal for city driving and commuting.
