The Fiat 500L Cross is the most rugged member of the 500L range, built for adventure beyond the city roads. Wider and higher than its counterparts, this sizeable model boasts features and aesthetics fit for the title of a crossover.
The exterior of the 500L Cross comprises a front skid plate, grille and new bumper with an increased approach angle. The ‘ultrashine’ side mouldings, door handles and front/side inserts evoke the crossover appeal of the car, whilst the attention to detail in the design ensure the car is stylish as well as high-performing. A distinctive feature of the 500L Cross is the quartet of “Mud&Snow” tyres, complete with 17” alloy wheels. These allow the car to confidently handle the road in all weather and driving conditions, whilst keeping passengers safe.
The 500L Cross comes equipped with high-comfort, fully-adjustable seats that have an upholstery design aligned with its dashboard. This represents the car’s ability to create an adventurous, versatile model without compromising on comfort or style. As with other cars in the 500L range, the Cross includes UconnectTM HD LIVE – a 7” interactive touchscreen radio which connects to your smartphone, giving access to music, navigation and features such as eco:Drive and my:Car. The in-built Parkview rear parking camera makes reversing easier, whilst there is ample room for loading family luggage, with 455L of boot space, and the option of further space with the Cargo Magic Space system and folding rear seats.
The 500L Cross delivers the standard line-up of 500L engine options, with two petrol engines - the 1.4L with 95hp, or the 1.4L T-Jet with 120hp. These engines can reach top speeds of 111mph and 117mph respectively, with consumption figures of 46.3mpg and 42.2 mpg for combined cycles. Two diesel engines are available – the 1.3L MultiJet with 95hp, and the 1.6L MultiJet with 120hp. These provide top speeds of 106mph and 117mph respectively, returning 68.9mpg and 67.3mpg for combined cycles. CO2 emissions range from 107g/km for the MultiJet diesel, to 155g/km for the T-Jet petrol engine.
There are three drive modes to choose from – Normal, Traction+ and Gravity Control – which can be altered using the Mode Selection button. This function gives the driver effortless control throughout the journey. The colour options for the 500L Cross are wide-ranging, including Bossa Nova White, Darkwave Black and Donatello Bronze.
