DETROIT -- Let me see....what shall I buy? The trunk space in my car just isn’t “square” enough. Try stacking items in a 1/2 rounded trunk, wasted space. Things I think my car (luxury mid sized sedan) can haul, just don’t fit. I like the square look of the Scion XB. If you go to Scion’s website you can add and compare vehicles.

Unfortunately, the Fiat 500L isn’t released yet so I was unable to do the comparison so I called Diana Jellinek of Golling Fiat. There is very limited information out there even to dealers about the production car seen at the auto show the 2014 Fiat 500L. The cost has not yet been released, there is a four-year, 50,000-mile Powertrain warranty. It is powered by a 1.4 liter turbocharged engine producing 160 hp and 184 lb.-ft. of torque.

There are 22 storage compartments. The panoramic roof gives passengers the broadest view of the sky in its category. It will seat five and the cargo space for the Fiat 500L is the roomiest car in its category. The Fiat 500L is awared a Euro NCAP 5 star rating.

The "L" in it’s name stands for large. The European model is 163 inches long, 70.1 inches wide and 65.4 inches tall. It is longer and taller than a MINI Countryman. Cargo room is sure to increase beyond the 10 cubic feet available behind the smaller 500’s rear seats. The L will be front wheel drive,
I am told.

The car should be released late winter 2013 it will be a 2014 model. There is a $500 deposit to take orders. The sales manager will get the word, waiting day by day and will then let customers know when they can order.

  • Basic Limited Warranty - 4 Yrs/50,000 Miles
