Fiat 500L

Price $25,495 – $28,590
Fuel consumption 7.9 – 10.7 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 30%(view ratings)
With the 500 hatchback gone, the Fiat 500L serves as the brand’s entry-level model. It’s a small urban crossover without the option of an all-wheel drive system. With boxy styling and a versatile interior including a 634-litre trunk, the 500L can be surprisingly accommodating. Under the hood, you will find a turbocharged 1.4-litre four-cylinder engine producing 160 horsepower along with 184 pound-feet of torque. The only transmission available is a six-speed autobox.
