Fiat is expanding its 500 lineup. Literally. The all-new 2014 Fiat 500L not only adds two more doors, but
also four value-loaded models. Called Pop, Easy, Trekking, and Lounge, Fiat says each 500L model is
packed full of technology, style, and convenience features.
Equipped with Fiat's 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine, the new 500L generates 160hp and 184lb-ft with
the option of two six-speed transmissions (manual or Dual Dry Clutch- DDCT). Total interior volume is
large for the segment at 120.1 cu. ft. and Fiat says five passengers can fit comfortably. With a starting
price of $19,100 (plus $800 destination), these new larger Fiats will likely offer some stiff competition
for its main rival, the Mini Countryman.
With the exception of the base Pop trim, the new 500L will also come with equipped with the Premier
Package during the first year of production at no-charge. Premiere Package amenities include ParkSense
rear-park assist; ParkView rear back-up camera, and Uconnect 6.5 (larger 6.5-inch touchscreen and nav).
For those who want even better sound, the Premier Package +Beats/SiriusXM is also available for the
Easy and Trekking models.
Fiat 500L Pop
Starting off the new lineup is Pop. Standard features include: Koni frequency selective damping front
strut and rear shock absorbers; six-speed manual, bi-halogen headlamps and daytime running lamps;
16-inch chrome-accented wheel covers; stainless-steel exhaust tip; Electronic Vehicle Information
Center (EVIC) with trip computer; 60/40 split-fold rear seats with front/rear adjustment, Uconnect 5.0
with touch display and technology integration and more.
The Pop starts at $19,100 (plus $800 destination).
Fiat 500L Easy
The Easy takes the Pop's base features and adds 16-inch aluminum wheels, leather-wrapped steering
wheel and shift knob, vinyl-wrapped instrument panel available in three colors, Fiat premium audio
system and more.
With more features and creature comforts than the Pop, the Easy starts at the slightly higher price of
$20,195 (plus $800 destination).
Fiat 500L Trekking
Designed as the rugged model of the bunch, the Trekking adds onto the Easy model and features a more
aggressive stance. Features for the Trekking include: fog lamps; two-piece front and rear fascias with
graphite inserts; graphite wheel arch and body-sill moldings; graphite recessed license plate area; 17-
inch aluminum wheels and wider all-season tires; two tone black/brown interior; cloth bucket seats,
floor mats and more.
Aggressive styling doesn't always mean aggressive pricing. The Trekking starts at $21,195 (plus $800
Fiat 500L Lounge
Leaving the rugged nature of the Trekking behind, the Lounge builds off of the Easy and adds even more
premium features, including: chrome body-side molding and mirror caps; Euro Twin Clutch six-speed
transmission; heated leather front seats (four-way adjust); integrated armrest with cup holders; auto-
dimming rear-view mirror and compass; automatic duel-zone climate control, and more.
With all these added convenience features the Lounge comes in at a slightly steeper price than its
siblings at $24,195 (plus $800 destination).
Arriving at Fiat dealers in June, like the Countryman, the 500L offers prospective 500 owners more
space, more doors, and more amenities -- all with the same Italian aesthetic that has helped make the
500 relatively successful thus far in the U.S.
