Leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, and a native navigation system largely separate the base Fiat 500L that costs around $22,000 from the fully loaded version that costs about $25,000. None of the 500L trim levels offer automatic emergency braking, no matter how much money you throw at it.
As a result, we give the standard 500L a 6 out of 10 on our features scale thanks to a 7.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. (Read more about how we rate cars.)
The Fiat 500L Pop is the base trim and it offers cloth seats, 16-inch wheels, one USB charger, power features, Bluetooth connectivity, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment. It’s where we suggest 500L shoppers begin and end—spending more doesn’t necessarily get more.
The Lounge version is the relative pinnacle of the 500L and features leather upholstery, navigation, premium audio from Beats, heated front seats, power lumbar adjustment, 17-inch wheels, parking sensors, and dual-zone automatic climate control.
The Fiat 500L is aged compared to newer family cars—even compared to the 500X sitting across the lot. Deals and incentives on a new model should be plentiful.
