Fiat Details 500L

Like its company Ferrari, Fiat seems to have an affinity for slowly and steadily tipping its hand prior to a major auto show. It revealed the first photos and information about the 500 Large earlier this month, and now it's updated with a few more details behind the elongated 500. While the 500L isn't quite as an exciting story as the Ferrari F620, it's always good to get the scoop a little early.

Mini detailed its big, bad Geneva debut - the Clubvan - earlier in the week, so Fiat took the opportunity to hop up and down to redirect the spotlight back toward it. Small car, small engines: The stretched out 500 will come with several small, efficient engine options. Those include a .9-liter Twin Air engine; a 1.4-liter four-cylinder petrol engine; and a 1.3-liter MultiJet diesel engine. As if that suite of engines isn't enough to save a 500L owner on gas, the model will include an eco:Drive function that provides advice on ways of boosting efficiency.

Fiat buyers will get plenty of opportunity to personalize their car. The 500L will come in more than 30 different exterior colors, and Fiat will paint the alloy wheels in a choice of white, grey or black. Available options will include custom graphics, chrome plating and roof racks. Fiat will also offer "fragrance diffusers," which sound like the vehicular equivalent of the bathroom cologne guy at the nightclub.

The 500L measures 163 inches long, 70 inches wide and 65 inches tall and offers enough trunk space for five suitcases. It will hit the US market early next year. We'll see it for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show.

I like this new direction Fiat is taking with their cars, the bigger the car the more sales you will get.

This car is probably going to increase Fiats sales by alot.
