Fiat 500L review

£15,775 - £22,410
Published: 13 Jan 2015


What is it like on the inside?

It’s anything but 500-squashed inside, with enough headroom to ensure even the baseball players Fiat showed us sitting in the back would be comfortable. The panoramic roof adds to the effect, as do the glassy side windows, although you’ll watch the mpg plummet when it’s sunny,because the air con will have to work hard.

Fiat’s got the fundamentals right, including decent seats, a big boot and a welter of cubbyholes. But it’s also added on some Mini-like personalisation, with 333 options including a sound system engineered by Dr Dre (you can celebrate this with a new bespoke Beats edition if you so wish, although Dre branding doesn't come cheap). Oh, and a built-in coffee machine. We kid you not. Is this THE single best new car option of 2016?
