A seven-seat version of the Fiat 500L has been revealed. Called the Fiat 500L MPW (for Multi Purpose Wagon) in the UK, it will be known elsewhere in Europe as the Fiat 500L Living.
Fiat describes the 500L MPW as a 5+2 seater, emphasising the part-time nature of the rear seats. It is 210mm longer than the 500L on which it is based, and 10mm higher. The width remains unchanged. Boot space with rear seats down is 638 litres, 238 litres more than the 500L. No luggage capacity for the car with the rear seats up has been given.
Engine options mirror those of the 500L, meaning 94bhp 1.4 and 104bhp 0.9-litre TwinAir petrols, plus a 104bhp 1.6-litre and 84bhp 1.3-litre diesels. The latter is also available with an automatic gearbox.
The Fiat 500L MPW will be sold in two trim levels, called Pop Star and Lounge, with buyers having 19 exterior colours to choose from and six interior colour options. Emphasising the car's customisation options, it will also be sold with 15 different styles of wheel.
