Fiat 500L Lineup Gets New City Cross Special Edition

A few months after significantly updating the 500L, Fiat has introduced a new version to complement the lineup – the City Cross.

It can already be had in selected European markets, where customers can choose between nine colors, including the new Sicilia Orange paintwork, which come in contrast with the black roof.

Key exterior elements are the special bumper with skid plate, tweaked grille, black accents, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a 25mm (0.98in) raised ride, all of which should “meet the expectations of customers looking for an urban crossover”, in Fiat’s words.

Inside, the new Fiat 500L City Cross gets black or white trims and black fabric seats with the ‘500’ logo on the backrests.

These are backed up by the standard equipment that includes 3.5-inch TFT color display, multifunction leather-wrapped steering wheel, Uconnect HD Live infotainment with touchscreen display, voice control, and Bluetooth, manual climate control, and cruise control, among others. Additionally, customers can also have the optional UCOnnect HD Live with a 7-inch touchscreen that comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

Fiat offers the 500L City Cross with a choice of three petrol engines – the 1.4 95PS (94hp), 0.9 105PS (104hp) and 1.4 120PS (118hp), alongside the petrol and LPG 1.4 120PS (118hp), and two diesels – 1.3 95PS (94hp) and 1.6 120PS (118hp).

    Why this car still exist ?

    Not a fan of the 500L, it just looks ugly. It was a clever marketing choice to exploit the 500 design as much as possible, but the result is rather poor. Fiat has always been strong on small cars, I expected better from them. They really need a change in their Centro Stile: Roberto Giolito is a very good designer and I like how cheerful and simple his cars look, yet they always seem to be wrong on proportions and ungraceful. They are not beautiful to look at, and that’s what an italian car maker should be strong on. I belive FCA would be better off hiring a design firm and moving on from their Centro Stile (imagine what a fantastic lineup they’d have if Pininfarina designed their cars).
    I love this colour, though. It would look astonishing on the standard 500 (if it’s not available already).

    It’s a good, practical and spacious car but it lacks safty features such as blind spot monitoring, rear cross detection or lane assist.
    It’s a pity.
