Used Fiat 500L for sale
The Fiat 500L is a versatile small MPV that offers a level of practicality that is suited to most families of five. If you need the extra space, it's a great alternative to the smaller Fiat 500X, of which it shares part of its name.

- A range of engines to choose from
- Different specifications to suit various preferences
- Cute exterior styling

Discover the benefits of a used Fiat 500L in more detail below.
Engines and Driving Experience
On the used car market, you'll have a range of engine types to choose from. To make things easier, we've listed them below:
- 0.9-litre TwinAir Turbo: 104bhp and a combined fuel economy of up to 58.9mpg.
- 1.4-litre FIRE: 94bhp and a combined fuel economy of up to 45.6mpg.
- 1.4-litre T-Jet: 118bhp and a combined fuel economy of up to 40.9mpg.
- 1.3-litre Multijet II: 84bhp and a combined fuel economy of up to 70.6mpg.
- 1.6-litre Multijet II: Either 104 or 118bhp and a combined fuel economy of up to 62.8mpg.
As an MPV, performance isn't the 500L's top priority as you'd expect. But what it does offer is a comfortable ride that can deal with the bumps and jolts of UK roads in a fairly easy fashion. The steering is light, making corners and bends easy to manoeuvre. Automatic and manual gearboxes are also available.
Practicality and Running Costs
The area of practicality is the 500L's strongest suit. The overall shape of the vehicle makes for a high roofline, which is much welcomed by taller occupants as it means a good amount of headroom. This goes for every seat within the cabin as legroom is also generous no matter where you're sat. However, if you go for an example with the optional panoramic roof, rear headroom can decrease significantly.
Life is also made easier when buckling your children up on the rear seats thanks to wide-opening rear doors, which also make fitting a child seat to the rear ISOFIX mounting points less hassle. The 500L offers 500 litres of boot space in its normal setup, but flattening the 60:40 rear-folding seats allows for extra space if required.
Being suitable for families, running costs are low. Insurance ranges between group 8 and 20 (out of 50) dependent upon specification. Servicing and maintenance requirements can also be completed by any Evans Halshaw dealership.
Interior, Technology and Safety
The 500L's interior is what you'd expect from a Fiat. Rounded lines and shapes give a cosy and inviting feel once you step inside. The dashboard is simply laid out, with a 5-inch Uconnect infotainment system (which comes as standard) being mounted in the centre.
Different bits of equipment can be found within used examples, such as satellite navigation and a larger infotainment system, dependent upon specification. If you're a coffee fan, some 500Ls came fitted with a Lavazza coffee machine which is mounted within the centre console. Handy for those long road trips with the family, if you ask us.
An excellent safety score has also been rewarded to the 500L, which received the full five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, thanks to a range of technology, such as:
- Parking sensors
- Rear parking camera
- City brake control (autonomous emergency braking)
Is the Fiat 500L right for me?
If you're after a vehicle that comes in a cute package and can comfortably carry you and your family, then the Fiat 500L is a good choice. A wide range of handy equipment can also be found across used car examples, meaning there is sure to be a configuration that suits you.
If you're working with a bigger budget and fancy getting your hands on something a bit more premium, the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is a great place to start. The Citroën C3 Picasso and Ford B-Max are also top contenders within the small MPV market.
