Although the Fiat 500L shares part of its name with the company’s chic city car, it’s actually a much larger beast. In fact, it’s longer, wider and taller than its most obvious rival, the Citroen C3 Picasso.
The looks alone will doubtless tempt people who are considering the Citroen. Equally, there’s no doubt that the 500L will answer the prayers of 500 owners whose lives have outgrown their current car, but want something every bit as stylish to cope with the extra demands.
However, the extra practicality comes at a price – the 500L is not a cheap car. Still, we reckon there will be many style-conscious buyers who will happily pay the extra.
