The Fiat 500L is a subcompact minivan of the Italian brand. Literally a couple of hours ago a special version of this model was presented – it received a prefix to the name S-Design. The novelty is available for the automotive markets of Europe.

The time when cars of the MPV segment (minivans) enjoyed great popularity have long ago been over. Now more and more people make their choice in favor of crossovers and SUVs. And on this not very optimistic for the Italian company Fiat and its subcompact minivan 500L note, the brand’s engineers tried to slightly rejuvenate their model. The Fiat 500L in the S-Design version, which previously produced the Tipo, 500X and 124 Spider models, looked different. The novelty is positioned as a special version of the minivan and is only available for the 500L Cross and above.

The car received an exclusive body color with a beautiful name “Donatello”, which should be said perfectly combined with a black roof. Dark accents are on the door handles, side moldings, radiator grille, side mirrors and on the rear lights. Also worth noting are black wheel light-alloy wheels of 17 radius and tinted rear windows.

The interior of the Italian minivan Fiat 500L in the performance of S-Design also received minor changes-the instrument panel has a matte black texture, you can also see the logo “500” with a copper coating. Fiat engineers also installed new S-Design double-stitched seats, leather inserts and the previously mentioned “500” copper logo. The cabin is equipped with a 7-inch Uconnect infotainment system with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There is a function of voice recognition.

Available in the automotive markets of Europe, the new 500L S-Design can be equipped with a 1.7-liter gasoline engine rated at 95 hp or a 1.3-liter turbodiesel with a capacity of 95 hp. The first is connected exclusively to the 6-speed manual transmission, while the second one can be coupled to a robotic gearbox. If you need more power, then in this case the minivan can be equipped with a 1.6-liter diesel engine, with a capacity of 120 hp. (The “ceiling” of torque is 320 Nm), this motor only works with manual transmission.

Not so long ago, our journalists wrote that the updated roadster Fiat 124 Spider Abarth is preparing for the premiere.
