The new 500L is designed to reinforce the family feeling of the model by emphasizing its key stylistic characteristics. The exterior style expresses all the distinctive elements which have characterized the model throughout its history, ever since its iconic 1950s forerunner, with an even more complete identity. The most obvious reference to the past is in the “mustache and badge” combo set on the trapezoidal nose, the upper headlights with chrome-plated elements, still circular and dynamic-looking, and the lower cluster with LED daytime running lights which pick up the graphics of the two “zeros” in 500. With this finely styled detail, the new 500L clearly proclaims its identity even in the dark. What’s more, the front bumper with signature trapezoidal trim and the chromed “studded” three-dimensional lower grille mesh give the car an attractive and very elegant look. At the same time, the chromed strips which direct the eye to the wheel arches convey toughness and individuality. With these changes, the front of the new 500L is even more expressive and seductive. The key feature at the rear are the chromed inserts that underline the family feeling and horizontal trims that reinforce the car’s presence and impact on the road. The fog and reversing lights are in the underside of the bumper. This change is functional rather than just stylistic, and increases the effectiveness of the various lights.
The new 500L is available in ten pastel or metallic colors and with three types of roof: body-colored, glossy black and white or Matt black. Overall, customers have a choice of no less than 37 color combinations. The colors available are the new Bellagio Blue, Sicilian Orange and Donatello Bronze, Ice-Cream White, Sorrento Yellow, Cinema Black, Fashion Grey, Maestro Grey, Tuscan Green and Passion Red.
