The Fiat 500L will soon receive minor revisions inside and out, with spy photographers catching a camouflaged 500L prototype undergoing cold weather tests in Europe.
The photos indicate the 500L will receive updated front and rear fascias that will help it appear more up-to-date and modern. With an exterior facelift usually comes an interior update as well, so we’re expecting Fiat to address some of the common complaints of the 500L’s cabin with a more up-to-date version of Fiat Chrysler’s UConnect infotainment system and additional soft touch materials.
Despite the Fiat 500L’s limited popularity in North America, the MPV remains a relatively production for the automaker in Europe. Fiat sold 82,150 500Ls in Europe last year, but sold just 3,116 units of the hatchback people mover in the U.S. within the same timeframe. The 500L is such a slow seller in North America that we wouldn’t be surprised if it were axed from Fiat USA’s lineup following the introduction of the this revised model (Fiat USA sold 178 500Ls in February 2017).
