Fiat's larger 500L officially has a price tag.
Fiat has announced pricing for its up-sized 500L model. Intended to extend the appeal of the Fiat brand in the United States market, the 500L will compete with vehicles like the MINI Countryman.
Pricing for the Fiat 500L will start from $19,900, including an $800 destination charge. That price of entry buys a 160-horsepower 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine matching to a six-speed manual transmission, seating for five and 42 percent more interior volume than Fiat's 500 small car.
"The all-new Fiat 500L expands the reach of the Fiat brand in North America, appealing to customers who like the contemporary Italian style of the Fiat 500 but need more space and functionality to match their lifestyle needs," said Jason Stoicevich, Head of e Fiat brand in North America. "The Fiat 500L offers the whole package, with best-in-class interior space, class-leading horsepower, exclusive technology features and the style that only Italians can create."
The 500L will be offered in four trim levels in the United States - Pop, Easy, Trekking and Lounge.
Stepping up from the 500L Pop to the 500L Easy -- which includes upgrades like 16-inch wheels, tinted rear glass, leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and a premium audio system - requires a $20,995 investment, including the aforementioned $800 destination charge.
Buyers looking for a slightly more rugged 500L will be interested in the $21,995 Trekking model. The 500L Trekking includes everything from the Easy package, but adds more aggressive front and rear fascias, fog lights, graphite wheel arch and body-side sill moldings, and 17-inch wheels.
The 500L range tops off with the Lounge, which offers Fiat's Twin Clutch six-speed transmission, 16-inch wheels, chrome accents, power and heated front seats, and leather upholstery. The 500L Lounge carries a retail price of $24,995, including destination.
In order to lure buyers to showrooms, Fiat is throwing in its Premier Package free of charge for 500L Easy and above models. Free only for the first model year, the Premier Package includes ParkSense rear-park assist, ParkView rear back-up camera and Uconnect 6.5 with a larger 6.5-inch touchscreen and navigation. Fiat says the deal will save buyers about $1,700.
The 500L is scheduled to land in Fiat showrooms next month.
