It’s amazing how such a small car carries huge sound, vibrancy and personality to become one of my favorite rides of 2015. That’s exactly what happened once I sat behind the wheel of the 2015 FIAT 500L with Beats Audio. It’s easily become my all-time favorite drive of the year and will possibly become my next vehicle purchase of choice! Check out why I love this car so – below!
It’s no secret that the FIAT 500L is a seemingly small car from the outside. The FIAT 500L features the signature FIAT 500 face, the distinctive look and attitude of additional width that’s also functional. The front fascia cooling ducts help deliver fresh air to the 1.4L MultiAir Turbocharged engine. With a choice of exterior colors available in metallic, nonmetallic and pearl finishes, plus the available Nero (black) or Bianco (white) accent painted roof and mirrors, the FIAT 500L becomes a colorful reflection of your personal style.
No matter how you view the 500L, it’s classic yet quirky from any angle (and if that isn’t the definition of my personal style, I don’t know what is!) The elegant form of the Cinquecento-inspired FIAT 500L showcases a slender roofline and discreet, sunscreen glass in the rear side and back windows that help reduce glare and provide additional privacy.
Did I mention it has a sun roof? The floating roof design of the FIAT 500L is matched to the exterior body color, or can be customized in your choice of available Nero (black) or Bianco (white). The available dual-pane power sunroof with sunshade opens the cabin to the world—so every drive is a scenic one. Perfect for summer road trips, the FIAT 500L has the exterior perks that you want with the interior necessities that you need!
Let’s talk interior room shall we? Featuring 121.1 cubic feet on the inside, the FIAT 500L comes completely outfitted with hidden technology features throughout the entire car.
As a serious driver, vehicle seating is very important to me. I have to feel comfortable when I’m on the road for hours at a time and from the look and feel of the seats to the calm and serene feel of the drive, the FIAT 500L really has it all! Even the passengers get a taste of space with tilt, tumble & slide rear seats, convenient storage and generous headroom and legroom wherever you go. From driving behind the wheel to chilling out in the back seat, this FIAT has plenty of room to spare.
Even the technology package that comes standard is an upgrade to what you’d find in most 2015 vehicles today. The leather-wrapped steering wheel on the FIAT 500L Easy not only looks amazing, it’s also easy to grip and soft to the touch. The steering wheel features stylish stitching for a polished appearance. While the Uconnect infotainment system gives you the control you need, all within arms reach. From the leather wrapped steering wheel to the uConnect system with Beats Audio – you definitely get a whole lotta car inside and out, within a beautifully wrapped, compact design.
The Connect Uconnect 5.0 System including Hands-Free Communication
Featuring a vivid 5-inch touchscreen, the Uconnect 5.0 System on the FIAT 500L Easy is comprehensive, providing a multitude of features that include an AM/FM radio, a CD player, USB port+, six premium speakers, Voice Command, Hands-Free Calling+, Bluetooth Streaming Audio and eco:Drive.
For even more capability, the Uconnect 6.5A System (shown), ParkView Rear Back Up Camera+ and ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System+ are available on the FIAT 500L Easy. The available Uconnect 6.5A System includes a 6.5-inch touchscreen and is available with GPS navigation. When you add the Beats Audio experience to the FIAT 500, you experience the excellence in sound quality, making it a true one-of-a-kind experience. (When Dr. Dre personally works with FIAT engineers across all FIAT 500 models to create a sound experience customized to the shape and size of each individual 500 model it’s no surprise that FIAT booms with big personality and sound.)

The available ParkSense Rear Park Assist System+and the ParkView Rear Back Up Camera+ help make it easier to park the FIAT 500L. ParkSense uses sensors to detect objects behind the vehicle and will alert you with audio and visual warnings. When the vehicle is shifted into reverse, ParkView displays a wide-angle view of the area behind the vehicle on the Uconnect System touchscreen—with gridlines to interpret distance in tight spaces.
Ultimately, the FIAT 500L helps bring more interior space, more doors, more passengers, more fun and more life.
