2018 Fiat 500L
Fiat reintroduced the 500 nameplate back in 2007, and since then the subcompact has seen just one update that came for the 2016 model year. As such, it’s now time for Fiat to begin updating other variants of the 500, and we’ve finally got a tip on the next model that’s up for revision: The 500L. With the 500 being nearly 10 years old, you would think Fiat would have seen fit to give the car a full update, but instead, it got a mild facelift. And, the spy shots we have received of the 500L show that Fiat is following suit and giving the 500L the same minor updates that came to its smaller counterpart. This means you can expect updated fascias and light units outside to go with new color options, a new steering wheel, and a refreshed dashboard inside.
The standard 500 is a funky little car that harkens back to the original in some aspects while providing a modern feel that we all love. But, when it comes to the 500L, let’s just say it’s not the best looking car out there. It’s disproportionate in some areas and just odd looking inothers – that’s just the nature of MPVs, though. Some might argue that Fiat really needs to ditch the MPV altogether and redesign the 500 L into a full-fledged SUV, but the facelifted version won’t hit the dealers until the 2018 model year, which means a redesign could be as much as a decade away if history is any indication of Fiat’s motivation to update the 500.
With that said, let’s take a good look at these spy shots and talk a little more about what’s to come to the updated Fiat 500L. Read more...
