Fiat has several different models that can be picked out of a line of vehicles any day. All of the models have there own unique style from overseas. Fiat has just released its first four-door car; you might recognize it from the many commercials where the Fiat was a mirage. The four-door model is the 500 L, part of the iconic Fiat 500 series.

The 500 L starts out with the signature Fiat 500 face, plus additional width for a distinctive look and attitude that’s also functional by delivering plenty of air to the engine. The elegant form of the Cinquecentro, which showcases smooth surfaces, inspires the body and flared wheel arches. Plus for your convenience, the 500L has heated side mirrors to help you get a clear view in any conditions. As much as you won't want the Fiat 500L to leave, you will be happy watching it drive away. It features distinctive taillights, a premium chrome exhaust tip and prominent lift gate badges.

Fiatusa.com says, “The interior is larger than live featuring nearly 123 cubic feet on the inside, the FIAT 500L comes richly outfitted with clever technology. Enjoy Tilt, Tumble & Slide rear seats, convenient storage and generous headroom and legroom wherever you go. With a ride this comfortable, that could be anywhere.” The seats are cloth bucket seats, and the rear seats can be folded down to help you bring along any cargo that is needed.

Fiat has done a great job at keeping up with the technology as well. The 500L features a vivid 5-inch touch screen with Uconnect 5.0. Uconnect provides a multitude of features that include an AM/FM radio, a CD player, USB connectivity with enabled charging, six speakers, voice command with Bluetooth, and eco drive. The steering wheel comes with mounted audio control switches for your convenience. In the middle of the dash you will find the EVIC, which stands for electronic vehicle information center. This provides the driver with simple and easy to find the trip meter and other vehicle information.

Under the hood of the Fiat 500L is a 1.4L MultiAir Turbo engine that produces 160 horsepower with 184 lb-ft of torque. Plus up to 33-highway mpg, with equal parts sophisticated exhaust system and Multiair induction system.

You can purchase the Fiat 500L for a little under $21,000.
