The Fiat 500L, 500L Trekking and 500L Living are larger and heavier than the standard model so it's refreshing to know the company has just announced they will be available with a new 1.4-liter Turbo T-Jet engine.

The Fiat 500L, 500L Trekking and 500L Living are larger and heavier than the standard model so it's refreshing to know the company has just announced they will be available with a new 1.4-liter Turbo T-Jet engine.

Designed to deliver "prompt acceleration," the 1.4-liter Turbo T-Jet engine produces 120 HP (88 kW) and 215 Nm (158 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the 500L to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 10.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 189 km/h (117 mph). This isn't terribly fast but it's significantly better than the 500L with the 0.9-liter TwinAir Turbo engine - that develops 105 HP (74 kW) and 145 Nm (107 lb-ft) of torque - which runs from 0-100 km/h in 12.3 seconds and tops out at 180 km/h (112 mph).

The models are currently avaliable to order in Italy and pricing starts at €20,920 for the 500L, €21,626 for the 500L Trekking and €20,063 for the 500L Living.
