Fiat revealed the pictures of new 500L,a more spacious version of the 500. The L in 500L represents Large.The car measures 4140mm in length, 1780mm in width and is 1660mm high and the L is 594mm longer, 153mm wider and 172mm taller than the standard Fiat 500 hatchback. The front and rear of the car are quite similar to the current 500 but the similarity seems to end there.The car will be introduced to the world at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

leave the 500 as a small car. Why follow Mini and make something like the CountryMan which is not a Mini by any sense.

Yes the design looks quirky. I do not understand what is the intention here. Is it just to give a competition to CountryMan? Anyway I am not a big fan of 500's. They dont look as good as original designs of Beetle or a Mini.

Not good. The design itself looks odd & awfully wrong.

The stock alloy design reminds me of XUV alloys. Is fiat copying??

You can call it in house copying. Take an Opel Corsa, slightly re-shape it and it is a Punto. Take an Astra, mess about with it and you have a Giulietta.

Then finally take a re-vamped Panda, rip of the front and rear lights and you nearly have the 500L.

Fiat 500 has itself established as a legendary brand. Who doesn’t loves the cute looks of old mighty mouse? Hampering with its shape is something I disapprove of.

Fiat 500L priced in the USA for 19000 Dollars

Fiat has priced its 500L premium hatchback in the US market for 19000 Dollars (Rs 10.61 lakh). The 500L is the long wheelbase version of the 500 hatchback and has the same features and engine line, but has five doors.
The Fiat 500L is powered by the 1.4-litre turbocharged Multiair engine that produces 160PS and 184Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to the front wheels via a six-speed manual or a six-speed dual clutch gearbox.

The car is being offered in four different variants. The base spec is the Pop variant that along with standard features like power windows, AC, electric mirrors also features chrome wheel covers. The next variant is the 500L Easy that along with the features of the Pop variant includes a tinted rear glass, body coloured mirrors and a better music system. The third variant is the 500L trekking that has contrast coloured bumpers with graphite inserts, fog lamps and 17-inch wheels.
The top of the line is the 500L Lounge that features the dual-clutch transmission, special 16-inch wheels, chrome accents on the outside, vinyl wrapped instrument panel, heated leather seats and dual zone climate control. Fiat is also offering the optional premier package for the trekking and Lounge variants. The package comprises features like a rear parking sensor and a touch screen infotainment system.

While the 500L Pop has been priced at 19000 Dollars (Rs 10.61 lakh), the top of the line Lounge variant has been priced at 24, 195 (Rs 13.54 lakh). However, the price excludes an 800 Dollar (Rs 44, 784) destination charge.
Fiat has said that it will go on sale from summer 2013, which is basically within the next two months. The Italian automaker will most likely replace its entire current range of vehicles with variants of the Fiat 500 and the Panda. This means that India is likely to get the 500L within the next one year but with the option of a diesel mill.
