New Fiat 500L ‘Beats’ Edition
New Special Edition
Fiat have announced a new special edition the Fiat 500L ‘Beats’ Edition, this new edition blends a cool urban look together with the chunky go anywhere style of the 500L Trekking. It is eye catching with a grey/black colour scheme. Styling enhancements include 17inch alloy wheels, wheel arch extensions, side skirts and bumper inserts all finished in black, together with mirror fairings, front ‘whiskers’ and a tailgate handle in satin chrome. The brake callipers and inserts in the mirror fairings are coloured in red which completes the distinctive ‘Beats’ look.
The interior of the ‘Beats’ edition boasts automatic dual-zone climate control as standard together with 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.
There are two petrol engines offered 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. Standard in this special edition is a premium
BeatsAudio™ audio system which employs the latest Beats by Dr.Dre technology. 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 BeatsAudio™ 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.
As the new Beats Edition is based around the Fiat 500L Trekking it 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 pricing and final specification of the new ‘Beats’ Edition will be announced closer to the UK launch in the middle of March.
Fiat have also announced new for this year two new packs on the FIAT 500L and 500L MPW. The new “Premium Pack” offers £1,720-worth of luxury equipment for just £1,300. Full beige or grey leather upholstery; a ParkView rear parking camera and a five-inch touchscreen Uconnect system with DAB and satellite navigation are all included in the pack, which is offered on the Lounge model only. In addition, a new “Living Pack”, comprised of heated front seats, height adjustable front seats, driver- and passenger-seat adjustable lumbar support and a front arm rest, can be combined with the Premium Pack for an additional £450, a saving of £125 versus the standard combined price of these options.
