Fiat 500L Beats Edition revealed

Fiat 500L gets new special edition, additional engines, and extra equipment packs

The Fiat 500L can now be specced as a Beats Edition special edition, which comes loaded with kit. Fiat’s mini MPV also gets a pair of new engines, and two new equipment packages.

The new Fiat 500L Beats Edition is based on the Fiat 500L Trekking, and is inspired by rapper Dr. Dre’s BeatsAudio electronics brand. To fit in with the hip-hop theme, the 500L Beats Edition gets moody two-tone black/grey paint, 17-inch alloy wheels, flared wheelarches, side skirts, and bumper inserts that are all finished in black. The new 500L also gets chrome trim on its mirrors, front end, and on the boot handle. Red brake callipers and red wing-mirror inserts complete the blingy exterior.

Equipment inside includes dual-zone climate control, a matt-grey dashboard finish, plus a Total Black pack that adds an ‘eco’ leather/black-fabric interior, with ‘500’ logos embroidered on the front seats. The Beats Edition car also gets the standard Trekking’s raised suspension, snow tyres, and clever electronics that give the Fiat extra grip in slippy conditions.

Fittingly for a 500L that is inspired by a rapper, the Beats Edition also gets a powerful 520W stereo that has been handpicked by Dr. Dre’s BeatsAudio brand to provide ‘a rich, immersive listening experience for all occupants’, thanks to a pair of subwoofers and seven speakers.

Prices for the 500L Beats Edition will be announced in March and the car is available with the current 104bhp 0.9-litre TwinAir petrol and the 1.6-litre 104bhp diesel.

Beats Edition customers can also choose between two new engines that Fiat has just announced for the 500L range. The first is an 118bhp 1.4-litre petrol called the 1.4 T-Jet. It will do 0-62mph in 10.2 seconds, returns 40.9mpg, and produces CO2 emissions of 159g/km. More economical is the new 1.6-litre Multijet diesel, which is capable of 61.4mpg, emissions of 120g/km, and can reach 0-62mph in 10.7 seconds. Prices for models fitted with the new engines will be announced in March.

Concluding the trio of 500L-related news is the launch of two new equipment packs – Premium and Living. The former is only available on Lounge models and gets you £1,720-worth of equipment for just £1,300, and includes leather seats, a rear parking camera, a five-inch touchscreen, DAB radio and sat-nav.

The Living Pack can be combined with the Premium Pack for £450, making you a £125 saving on equipment including heated front seats, with height and lumber adjustment, and a front arm rest.
