Fiat will introduce the new 500L, the new model in the 500 range, at the International Geneva Motor Show on 6 March. The L stands for Large—Fiat is positioning the 500L as a combination of the typical characteristics of different categories to create an alternative to the traditional B and C segments.

The 500L features a 5-seater single-volume structure which is 414 cm long, 178 cm wide and 166 cm high. It is a further development of the concept of cab forward introduced by Fiat with the 600 Multipla, a precursor to the concept of the compact people carrier.
The Fiat 500L will be introduced to Europe in the last quarter of 2012, with an engine range which will initially comprise two gasoline engines (TwinAir and 1.4-liter) and a turbodiesel engine (1.3 MultiJet II).
