What's New in the 2019 FIAT 500L?

Universal garage door opener now standard on Trekking and Lounge trims.

Which 500L is the Best?

If we were writing the check, we'd get the 500L Lounge. Even in the hatchback's top trim level, prices are still reasonable, especially with sharp discounts often offered by FIAT. And the Lounge comes surprisingly well-equipped, touting a lot of comfort features that enhance the driving (or riding) experience.

How Much Does a 2019 FIAT 500L Cost?

The 2019 FIAT 500L is available in Pop, Trekking and Lounge trim levels. Prices include the $1,245 factory delivery fee.

Standard equipment on the base Pop ($22,240) includes 16-in alloy wheels, full power accessories, keyless entry, height-adjustable front seats, cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 60/40-split folding and sliding back seats, Bluetooth, a 7-in Uconnect touchscreen interface, a rearview camera, two USB ports, an auxiliary audio jack, a CD player and a 6-speaker sound system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Trekking ($24,570) adds vaguely more rugged looks plus 17-in wheels, fog lights, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a garage door opener, satellite radio and a 9-speaker Beats Audio system upgrade.

The Lounge trim ($25,140) is pretty much the same as the Trekking in regards to feature content, but it ditches the rugged looks for more chrome and body-colored pieces. We suppose it's somewhat more premium in appearance. It does add an auto-dimming rearview mirror, driver's seat power lumbar adjustment, rear-park assist and dual-zone auto climate control.

The Popular Equipment package (Pop and Trekking) adds rear parking sensors, a backup camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, 2-way power driver lumbar support and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The Premium package (Pop) includes all of those items, plus a navigation system integrated into the standard Uconnect touchscreen and a 9-speaker Beats audio system. You can also add contrasting black or white roofs to the Trekking and Lounge, while the Trekking can be equipped with an Urbana package that adds black wheels and a red roof.

Is the 2019 FIAT 500L a Safe Car?

As for safety features, the 500L offers a minimum of safety technology. It does include necessities like front-side airbags, side-curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes, traction control and a backup camera.

2019 FIAT 500L vs the competition

2019 Honda Fit -- Want to get the biggest and most versatile interior with the smallest possible exterior? You're looking for the Honda Fit. It boasts better driving dynamics, fuel economy, resale value and reliability than the 500L.

2019 Kia Soul -- It's not the chic new FIAT brand, but the Kia Soul is tremendously popular for a reason. The hatchback combines practicality, equipment and style into one well-priced package.

2018 FIAT 500X -- If you dig the FIAT look and vibe, but are looking for a stronger all-around effort, it's definitely worth considering the 500X. It's more akin to an SUV, is available with all-wheel drive, and we think it looks considerably better inside and out than the 500X.

Used FIAT 500L -- Given the 500L's terrible depreciation, it makes a lot of sense to consider a lightly used one if you think it's the car for you. Sure, you may need to deal with the wonky old automated manual transmission, but you'll also be saving a lot of money.
