As a Fiat 500L Trekking was one of the big and practical brothers of the lifestyle dwarf Fiat 500 already represented in the blog. In addition to living and trekking, FIAT still sees plenty of space for further models and is cheerfully expanding the program. For friends of well-groomed bass and people with a desire for decent buzz from the radio, there is now the FIAT 500L BEATS Edition.

Sometimes it's the looks that impress us. The Fiat 500L gains a lot of character in the BEATS Edition. And this is due, for example, to the black 17-inch rims, the possible color combination in the matt gray paint and the black roof designed as a contrast. Door handles and side protection strips are made of matt chrome and the “cool” factor in the interior has been increased by at least the performance of the sound system.
520 watts of sound - 88 kilowatts under the hood
The 500L BEATS Edition always comes with a 120 hp engine. As a diesel or as a gasoline engine. The customer has the choice, either the new one 1.6 liter MultiJet to order with 120 PS and a full 320 Nm torque at only 1.750 revolutions. Or to curve with the 1.4 liter turbo gasoline engine “T-Jet” under the hood of the dealer yard. This engine, too, has an output of 120 hp and an impressive 215 Nm on the crankshaft, but has a standard mix consumption of 7.0 liters per 100 kilometers. The new Multijet diesel reduces the diesel consumption of the 500L BEAT to a standard consumption of just 4.8 liters per 100 kilometers.
Both engines get the six-speed gearbox aside and with Traction + a variable electronic traction control.
The sound system provides 520 watts and ensures proper pressure in the cabin. During an initial test drive, the sound of the optional DAB + equipped multimedia system conjured up a broad grin on the face. Of course plugged in proper music, of course also goes via Bluetooth from the phone and off the post office.
The 500L BEATS Edition also gets a neat package from the range of extras on the way. If you compare the whole package, the 500L BEATS Edition got accessories worth 3.000 € on the stylish way. In addition to the black 17 light alloy wheels and the cool urban design, you are pleased about the cruise control, the rear parking sensors, air conditioning and tinted windows from the second row.
The soundbox on four wheels will cost around 23.000 € and be delivered to customers in early summer.
