Following the successful launch of the Fiat 500L and the 500L Trekking, the newest member, the 500L MPV, now goes on sale.
The 500L MPW is the perfect expression of Fiat’s know-how in making space-efficient compact cars with a twist – combining the charm and agility of the Fiat 500 with the comfort and contents of a C-segment car and the space and the versatility of a people carrier.
In five-seat mode, with the rearmost seats stored neatly underneath the boot floor, the Fiat 500L MPW is a credible alternative to a traditional C-segment estate, combining exceptional roominess and comfort with an impressive load capacity of 638 litres and all within a footprint at least 20cm shorter overall than the equivalent estate. As a people carrier it is the most compact 5+2-seater in its segment, measuring 4,352mm in length, 1784mm in width, and 1,667mm in height, while at the same time offering the versatility and interior roominess (2,612mm wheelbase ) normally found in much larger vehicles.
The new Fiat 500L MPW will be offered in two trim levels in Ireland: Pop Star and Lounge. Equipment highlights on the Pop Star version include air conditioning; cruise control; 16-inch alloy wheels; a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear knob; a five-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Uconnect and remote controls; six airbags; a full suite of stability, traction control safety systems, as well as rear parking sensors.
The Lounge version builds on the Pop Star’s high specification level by adding rear electric windows; front fog lights; dual-zone automatic climate control; automatic headlamps; rain-sensing wipers; front seats with seat back tables and storage nets; an electro-chromatic rear view mirror; rear privacy glass; floor mats and an electric, panoramic, glass sunroof.
The new Fiat 500L MPW engine range boasts three power plants: The 105hp 0.9 twinair petrol (six-speed manual ); the 85hp 1.3 multijet (five-speed manual or five-speed Dualogic automatic transmission ), and the 105hp 1.6-litre multijet (six-speed manual ). Nine different exterior colour choices are available, plus a variety of contrasting roof and mirror colour combinations, as well as a range of alloy wheels in different sizes, styles and colours.
Prices for the Fiat 500L MPW start at €23,550 for the twinair 105hp Pop Star, while the diesel-powered 1.3 multijet 85hp Pop Star starts at €24,300. As with the rest of the Fiat range, a five-year warranty comes as standard on all versions.
