Fiat presents the 500L MPW/Living

Article by Anita Panait, on June 19, 2013

Fiat has unveiled the first official images of the Fiat 500L MPW, which is dubbed as ‘Living’ in other parts of Europe. Fiat plans to unveil the latest addition to its current product range in July during the sixth anniversary of the 500 family. The Fiat 500L MPW is intended to capture the interest of a number of target consumers who are looking for new features and seeking for a balance of functionality and design.

While the new Fiat 500L MPW still carries the charm of the 500, it boasts of the agility of a city-car. It is also as compact as a mid-size car but has the space and the versatility of a multi-purpose vehicle. The new Fiat 500L MPW also boasts of the comfort and contents of a C-segment station wagon or saloon. The newest member of the 500 family features an additional third row of seats, making it the most compact ‘5 + 2-seater’ MPV in its segment.

It features a dimension of 435cm in length, 178cm in width and 167cm in height. Despite being 20cm shorter than a C-segment station wagon, the new Fiat 500L MPW boasts of cabin volume of 638 liters, providing exceptional comfort, space and load capacity.

At launch, the Fiat 500L MPW will be powered by two gasoline engine choices: a 95-hp 1.4 16v and a 105-hp 0.9 TwinAir Turbo; and two turbodiesel engines: a 105-hp 1.6 MultiJet II and 85-hp 1.3 MultiJet II, the latter paired with automatic gearbox. Fiat 500L MPW will prove to be a personification of Fiat’s ingenuity in developing mobile units that allows people to make their life simpler and more enjoyable.

With 800,000 vehicles sold in 110 countries, the 500 today has grown to allow for new experiences and requirements again. If the 500 is the super-compact perfect for young people and urbanites, the Fiat 500L is the first 500 able to offer life's smallest pleasures and greatest sensations for everyone, everywhere.

Fiat's heritage connects different times and experiences and represents a road on which people travel with a sensitivity and capability to sense the vehicle's evolution’s contribution.

A continuing dedication in determining products that share the expansive range of technical and design expertise, all aimed at safeguarding that distinct inventiveness, is recognisable as a reason for the worldwide Italian design’s success. These are apparent from Dante Giacosa to the new route taken by Fiat Design.

Successive records, true keystones of the Fiat’s brand identity, distinctly materialise from the 1956 600 Multipla - to which the 500L project was connected to recover several archetypal components under the guidance of its multiple functions and its specific morphology heritage - to the 1957 500, the 1972 127, the 1980 Panda, the 1983 Uno, and the 1998 Multipla, so we can appreciate the most profound and pioneering car refinements.

Fiat 500L MPW: The new model of the 500 family

Fiat presents the first official photos of the Fiat 500L MPW (called 'Living' in the rest of Europe), the new model that will have its world preview in July on the sixth anniversary of the 500 family. A development of the icon launched in 2007, the new car is for living life to the full, a car which reaches out directly to a diverse public, attentive to new features and looking for a balance of functionality and design, to make room for their many interests and intended uses without compromising on style.

The new Fiat has all the charm of the 500, the agility of a city-car, is as compact as a mid-size car, has the comfort and contents of a C-segment station wagon or saloon and the space and the versatility of an MPV. These are the ingredients of a new conception of the car, which is not based solely on technical specifications, but also on how it is experienced in life, to create a magic combination.

The 500L MPW is therefore the perfect marriage of effective use of space and unmistakeable 'made in Fiat' design. With an additional third row of seats, the new car is the most compact '5 + 2-seater' MPV in its segment: it is 435 cm long, 178 cm wide and 167 cm high. What's more, despite being 20 cm shorter than a C-segment Station Wagon, the Fiat 500L MPW ensures exceptional values in terms of comfort, space and load capacity, as demonstrated by a volume of 638 litres.

The new model therefore assumes its position as the first car for the whole family which reaches out to all consumers, able to win over both men, thanks to its characteristics of functionality and efficiency, and women, due to its beauty, intelligence and style. And it's bound to please children as well: to their eyes it will be attractively spacious. In short, the Fiat 500L MPW is the superlative expression of Fiat's characteristic ingenuity in creating vehicles that make everyday life more simple, and a bit more fun as well.

At launch, the Fiat 500L MPW will be equipped with two petrol engines - 95 HP 1.4 16v and 105 HP 0.9 TwinAir Turbo - as well as two turbodiesels: 105 HP 1.6 MultiJet II and 85 HP 1.3 MultiJet II, the latter also with automatic transmission.

The Fiat 500L MPW will be produced in the new Serbian factory at Kragujevac, while orders will open in July in Italy, to be extended progressively to the other countries of Europe.
