Fiat 500L Living is Significantly Longer Than the Classic Fiat 500

Longer Fiat will hold seven people

Anyone who is familiar with the Fiat 500 knows that the car is very small. You would be hard-pressed to get anyone other than small children in the backseat of your typical Fiat 500. However, Fiat has rolled out a new 500 model capable of seating seven people in relative comfort.

The car is called the 500L Living and is about 4.35 m long. That makes it about 1 m longer than the Fiat 500 we all know. The longer Fiat is set to go on sale in Italy this month with a choice of four engines. Fiat hopes to build between 110,000 and 150,000 500L cars and its plant in Serbia this year.

Fiat hasn't released the official pricing for the 500L Living at this time, but it is expected to cost more than the normal 500L. Pricing should be announced closer to launch.

A Little Tribute To An Overshadowed Big Brother: The Fiat 600

Sep 1 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

Right now, the most famous Fiat (at least in the US) is the Fiat 500. The 500 has become the iconic Fiat, the mascot of Fiat, and while it's certainly a car that earned that status, I've always felt that it's older big brother, the Fiat 600, never really got the credit ...

Roam If You Want To: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Full Pricing Out

Aug 28 2014 1:09pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The formula for the Jeep Grand Cherokee is pretty straightforward: Mix four-doors and (usually) four-wheel drive with a family-size vehicle and a reasonably comfortable and well-appointed interior. The recipe has proved so enticing that the Grand Cherokee is now available in six levels of trim, putting the venerated nameplate within reach of almost any buyer. The most affordable entry gets Laredo badging. Priced at $30,590 for rear-wheel drive and $32,590 for the four-wheel-drive vers ...

'Lincoln Lawyer' Star McConaughey Tabbed for Lincoln Ads

Aug 21 2014 11:50am CDT | Source: Cars.com

Don't drive a Lincoln? Matthew McConaughey thinks it'd be a lot cooler if you did. Earlier this year, the Hollywood A-lister's so-called McConaissance was fully realized when he won the Oscar for his "Dallas Buyers Club" performance. Now, Ford is hoping the born-again serious actor — who'd become a bit of a punchline in recent years, starring in poorly received romantic comedies and, like, "Surfer, Dude" before a string of prestige pieces a ...

Here are five slow classics that pretended to be sporty

Aug 20 2014 1:47pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

The Subaru/Toyota twins are often derided for their lack of power. Enthusiasts everywhere have moaned that they have “only” 200 horsepower and about their “slow” eight-second zero to 60 time. Perhaps we’re too spoiled by living in a world where a properly optioned RAV4 can do zero to 60 in under seven seconds, but eight seconds isn’t all that slow.  There was a time when even the largest V8s struggled to make 200 horsepower and small-bore s ...

Honda Kills Fit EV, Says It Is Committed to Other Forms of Electromotive Transportation

Aug 1 2014 5:25pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Honda is discontinuing its Fit EV by the end of the year as it concentrates on other forms of electrified vehicles like Accord PHEV and the production version of the futuristic-looking FCEV concept that rocked the 2013 L.A. auto show. The Fit is the latest casualty of Honda’s evolving approach to electromobility. Earlier this year, Honda announced its decision to discontinue the slow-selling Insight hybrid, but this news regarding the Fit EV is, well, news consi ...

Gnarly! Fiat 500L–Vans Concept Debuts at Vans U.S. Open of Surfing

Jul 30 2014 10:24am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Sometimes when you take an ungainly car and cover it with tons of crap it can come out kind of nifty-looking. If that weren’t possible, SEMA wouldn’t be a thing. At the Vans U.S. Open of Surfing last weekend in Huntington Beach, California, Fiat debuted a high-riding, surfer-inspired concept version of its none-too-fetching 500L dubbed, not coincidentally, the 500L–Vans. Turns out, when festooned with a two-tone paint job, 18-inch matte-black wheels, smoked ...
