Leaked: Fiat 500XL shows up

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 29, 2013

An image of the seven-seat Fiat 500XL (a stretched version of the 500L) has recently been leaked. It appears to have been taken inside Fiat’s plant. This model has longer rear quarterlights. According to online reports, the 500XL is longer than the 500L. Sources told Autocar previously that the 500XL is a “further development of the 500L.”

It will be offered together with the 500L and it will be set up in the same way as the Ford C-Max/Grand C-Max and Renault Scenic/Grand Scenic.

Fiat has yet to officially confirm it but it’s believed that the new Fiat 500 variant will offer an engine lineup similar to that of the 500L. This means that it’s likely to be available with the 105bhp 0.9-litre TwinAir and 95bhp 1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and a 1.3-litre MultiJet diesel.

The Fiat 500XL will be the third bodystyle in the Fiat 500 range. In 2014, a 500 Trekking is expected to be launched. This will be comparable to the rugged appearance of the Panda 4x4. The 500XL crossover, which is expected to compete with the Mini Countryman, is slated to have its launch in early 2014.
