An elevated view of the road and a huge glass area ensure the view out of the Fiat's bright and airy cabin is very good. The dashboard is logically laid out and appealing, with stylish flourishes to ensure it matches the Fiat's cheery exterior. Some aspects of using the trip computer can be a bit of a head-scratcher, but otherwise all is well.
Fiat 500L MPW space & practicality
If you’re after a car to regularly seat seven, this isn’t a very practical proposition. The two optional rear seats are small and suitable only for young kids on short journeys. That said, they stow easily by folding flat into the boot floor, which makes them well suited for occasional use. The boot is small with seven seats in place, but in five-seat mode there’s plenty of room. Space for front and middle-row passengers is good, although anyone over six-foot tall may want more headroom.
Fiat 500L MPW equipment
There are two trim levels: Pop Star and Lounge. Pop Star has air-con, reversing sensors, alloy wheels, Bluetooth, cruise control, a touch-screen stereo system and a body-coloured dashboard; that’s pretty good for the money, so it’s what we’d go for. Lounge models get dual-zone climate control, automatic lights and wipers, a sunroof and rear electric windows, but they up the price a bit too much.
