The FIAT 500L range goes from strength to strength in 2014 with the announcement of a new special edition - the FIAT 500L Beats EditionTM.
It blends cutting-edge technology with a cool, urban look, combining the chunky go-anywhere styling of the 500L Trekking with an eye-catching, two-tone, grey/black colour scheme finished in a choice of gloss and matte finishes. Further styling enhancements include 17-inch alloy wheels, wheel arch extensions, side skirts and bumper inserts, all finished in black, as well as mirror fairings, front "whiskers" and the tailgate handle in satin chrome. Red brake callipers and red inserts in the mirror fairings complete the distinctive "Beats" look.
The interior of the FIAT 500L Beats EditionTM has also been enhanced with automatic dual-zone climate control as standard, as well as a matte-grey dashboard panel and a Total Black interior pack which includes special black fabric/eco-leather seat upholstery complete with red, embroidered '500' logos on the front backrests.
Naturally, a premium BeatsAudioTM audio system is also standard, employing the latest Beats by Dr. Dre technology to provide a rich, immersive listening experience for all occupants. With a total output of 520W via an eight-channel DSP-equipped amplifier, the seven-speaker system (there are two subwoofer channels) employs advanced equalisation algorithms to recreate the sound spectrum that artists experience during studio recordings. The outstanding performance of the BeatsAudioTM system is indicative of the quality that has helped the "Beats by Dr. Dre" brand enjoy such rapid growth in the U.S. and, more recently, in Europe.
Based around the FIAT 500L Trekking, the new FIAT 500L Beats EditionTM also features the Trekking's revised suspension, Mud and Snow tyres, City Brake Control and FIAT's Traction+ traction control system as standard. Additional features, also standard on the Trekking, include rear electric windows, front fog lights, a touchscreen Uconnect infotainment system, automatic headlights, rain sensors and rear privacy glass.
The FIAT 500L Beats EditionTM is available with two petrol engines, the new 120hp 1.4 T-Jet and the 105hp 0.9 TwinAir Turbo, as well as two turbo-diesel power plants: the 105hp 1.6 MultiJet II and new 120hp 1.6 MultiJet II.
