Article by Christian Andrei, on November 5, 2013

The Fiat 500L Adventurer, the new five-seater, is highly versatile and has received modifications that make it more practical as well as give it a rugged look. Its exterior has been improved with Bright White body paint and two-tone accent wheel flares and rockers with a Satin Black paint finish. The roof has been painted in Vibrance Bright Orange and also features Mopar roof rails and a big roof basket.

The 500L Adventurer uses a set of 18 x 7.5-inch custom concept wheels that are enhanced with FIAT logo center caps. A custom 500L graphic augments door panels, while the L is painted in orange to match the roof. The exterior styling is improved further with orange mirror caps, tinted taillights, tinted chrome exhaust tips, molded splash guards, and a chrome FIAT logo ring.

The upgrades to the interior include black perforated suede Katzkin seats and pearl leather seatbacks. There are also matching orange accents and have orange-painted bezels and orange accents that surround the speaker grills and steering-wheel badge.

The two-tone instrument panel is black with a white leather insert. The Mopar catalog also includes a Mopar seatback coat hanger, all-weather mats, a pedal kit, doorsill guards and a cargo organizer. The performance is improved with the installation of a Mopar cold-air intake and Mopar cat-back exhaust. [source: Chrysler]

Press Release

Fiat 500L Adventurer

Fiat presents the first official images of the 500L, the new model which will have its world preview at the International Geneva Motor Show on 6 March this year.

500L - the L stands for 'Large' - is the new addition to the 500 range, which, following the Abarth and Cabrio versions, furthers the brand's strategy, with the aim of extending its offer by introducing models in a position to satisfy different types of customers.

With the 'L', the 500 expands and grows together with customers, to accommodate new experiences and needs once more.

With MPV passenger space combined with the feel of a small SUV on the road and the restrained dimensions and efficiency of a B segment car, the new Fiat model defies the conventional distinctions between the various segments, combining the typical characteristics of different categories in order to create a distinctive alternative to the traditional B and C segments.

With the 500L, the Fiat brand demonstrates its creative spirit once more: a marriage of functionality and emotion, it features a 5-seater single-volume structure which is 414 cm long, 178 cm wide and 166 cm high. It is a further development of the concept of 'cab forward' introduced by Fiat with the 600 Multipla, a precursor to the concept of the compact people carrier.

Produced at the Fiat factory in Kragujevac, Serbia, 500L is a 'first car' for those who won't settle for anything less than Italian style, the versatility that comes from a functional design and engine technology that sets the bar in terms of efficiency.

The Fiat 500L will be introduced to Europe in the last quarter of 2012, with an engine range which will initially comprise two petrol engines (TwinAir and 1.4-litre) and a turbodiesel engine (1.3 MultiJet II) and the most advanced, state-of-the-art technology from Fiat Group Automobiles.
