Expert Rating

Not Available
24 City / 32 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.


The largest offering in the Fiat stable, the 500L wagon offers four-door convenience and the cargo-handling ability of a compact crossover. You also get passenger room and comfort on a scale that makes that 500L a free-spirited alternative to more conventional family vehicles.

What's New for 2016

The 500L is essentially unchanged.


Choosing Your FIAT 500L

FIAT 500L Interior

The 500L's tallish body and high-mounted seats give the impression of riding in a crossover, which is clearly what the designers intended. Even with the rear seat in place, you get 23 cubic feet of cargo space, enough for weekend family trips or a few weeks' worth of groceries. The seat slides and reclines to help keep passengers comfortable. Fold it down and you're looking at 68 cubic feet, a laudable amount for what is essentially a compact wagon.

Every model is powered by a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 160 horsepower. A six-speed manual transmission comes standard, and you can opt for a six-speed automated manual or conventional six-speed automatic. Expect about 25 to 28 mpg in combined driving depending on the transmission.

The 500L is offered in four trim levels:

FIAT 500L Seats
  • Pop: Comes with the manual transmission only and all the expected passenger car conveniences. The six-speaker sound system features Bluetooth phone and audio, a 5-inch touchscreen, and voice controls. The Pop rolls on 16-inch steel wheels.
  • Easy: Gives you a choice of all three transmissions (manual, automated manual, automatic) and additional standard equipment such as premium cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a front console, alloy wheels, and an upgraded sound system. The available Popular Equipment group adds dual-zone automatic climate control, a power driver seat, a rear armrest, an auto-dimming mirror, and a household-style power outlet. You can also order a premium Beats sound system with satellite radio. Technology gets a boost from the optional Premiere package, which adds a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, and a navigation system.
  • Trekking: Builds on the Easy with upgraded interior and exterior trim, foglamps, and 17-inch wheels. The option packages remain available.
  • Urbana Trekking: Gets matte black exterior trim with matching alloy wheels and your choice of a black, white, or red roof. The Beats Audio sound system comes standard, and all other equipment and options are shared with the standard Trekking model.
  • Lounge: Gets the six-speed automatic transmission and Popular Equipment package as standard, plus leather upholstery and heated front seats. The Lounge reverts to 16-inch wheels; 17s are optional.

The Easy and Trekking can get the Lounge's heated seats as a standalone option. Available on all three are a sunroof and a black- or white-painted roof.

CarsDirect Tip

Even in top Lounge trim, the 500L carries a lower price than you would expect for a vehicle of its interior volume. But if you're looking for maximum dollar value, the Easy or Trekking will feel about right.
