2014 Miami Auto Show: Fiat brings the 500L Urbana Trekking

Article by Christian A., on November 8, 2014

The 500 Ribelle Limited Edition wasn’t the only special vehicle unveiled by Fiat at the 2014 Miami Auto Show as the new 500L Urbana Trekking was also introduced in the city located on the Altlantic coast in southeastern Florida. Just like the smaller 500, the new 500L Urbana Trekking comes with several design enhancements such as Matte Nero exterior mirrors and bezels on the front and rear fascia, side sills and body-side moldings and new 17-inch wheels painted in Matte Nero.

In addition, there are Satin Chrome door handles, taillights and accents on the front and rear fascia. The 2015 Fiat 500L Urbana Trekking will be available in six glossy exterior paint colors: Verde Bosco Perla (Forest Green Pearl), Rosso Perla (Deep Lava Red), Giallo (yellow), Bianco (white), Grigio Scuro (Gray Metallic) and Blue Tornado, paired with a Nero (black) roof.

The vehicle featured at the show received a unique Matte Grigio Chiaro body and a Matte Nero roof that will not be available on production models. Same colour scheme is continued at the interior where we find a Nero steering wheel wrapped in leather, leatherette door bolsters and cloth seats, while the instrument panel features a Nero Puro bezel for models featuring a glossy exterior paint and a Matte Grigio bezel for those with Matte Grigio Chiaro exterior paint.

A proper sound is ensured by the standard Beats Audio system with six premium speakers and a 6.5-inch dual-voice coil (DVC) subwoofer with trunk-mounted enclosure and eight-channel amplifier with Beats Audio’s proprietary digital sound processing (DSP) algorithm.

Also as standard is the SiriusXM Radio. According to the company, the 2015 Fiat 500L Urbana Trekking will be available in the first quarter of 2015 and starts at $22,795, not including destination.

Fiat has got something new in store for its 500 lineup. After selling over 800,000 cars worldwide, Fiat’s compact vehicle once again brings a whole new experience for everyone to enjoy. One thing’s for sure, the Fiat 500L is packed with all the delightful features that friends and family would love.

Looking back, Fiat has evolved with us at different moments in history. These experiences have somehow shaped many of its unique characteristics, which in turn have contributed to Fiat’s product design. This on-going commitment and inventive nature are probably the reason for Dante Giacosa’s success.

Today, Fiat Design is taking a new route and is going through its most radical change. We can see these transformations starting with the Fiat 500 from 1957 all the way to the Fiat Multipla that came out in 1998. The 1956 Fiat 600 Multipla is one of the brand’s original foundations. In between, Fiat has morphed from Fiat 500 to Fiat 127 (1972), the Panda in 1980 and Fiat Uno three years later.

To make the long story short, the design evolution gives us the new Fiat 500L. At least for now. The Fiat 500L is a compact people carrier just like the 600 Multipla. Fiat’s “Simply More” philosophy is also employed in the vehicle’s “Multispace” concept.

Presently, Fiat focuses more on the relationship between the vehicle and the owner. This new approach will help them provide all the essentials for better function. The iconic 500 is indeed growing into a more comfortable and functional vehicle. Moreover, Fiat brand’s innovative space efficiency technology is intended to create the most advanced Fiats ever. So basically, the new Fiat 500L redefines the compact car category to suit today’s modern family.
