2014 Fiat 500L Living



This has to be the stupidest name for a car I've seen in a while. "Living". Like in "Living room"?

We are just getting the 500L over here, and Europe is soon getting a longer 7 seat version of that car.
The "living".

So as of now, this is the largest car sold under the name 500. It is about 8 inches longer than the regular 500L.

Thankfully, the only engine offered in the US version of the 500L is the 1.4 Liter Turbo with 160HP.
But in Europe, where the "Living" will stay, they offer a 95HP version of the 1.4 Liter as a base engine.
Just imagine how fun that is to drive around with 7 people on board....

Should have called it the 500L Puking.

This name makes more sense than some other car companies having a history of naming their cars by vehicle series e.g. 3 and then a 2 digit designator for the engine displacement e.g. 30 for 3.0 liters of displacement YET now seem to just pull the last two numbers out of their butts at random like say... 28 for a 2.0 liter Turbo.

Anyway... Not really liking the look of this stretched version.

wonder if it runs on expensive Premium like all their other models.
