Editor's Overview

The Fiat 500L has more interior room, greater practicality and better everyday driving manners than the smaller 500, yet retains much of its little sibling's Italian charm. With a price starting around $20,000, this 5-passenger hatchback also offers quite a bit for the money, but in the long run suffers from poor projected resale value.

Has a plug to connect your phone or anything else.

I like the model of the car, the view that it has up on the roof, if horn beets, it is a very comfortable car, everyone likes my car.

- Karla P

Its performance, its safety, and its ease of driving are among their favourites

I really like it, both in terms of its appearance and its performance. It has a very large space, which is very satisfying to me

- Maez W

It's a lot faster than it looks

The car has only had regular wear on it after 3 years of use, and everything held up. No big issues with the car at all.

- Dale P
