As the luxury flagship of the 2018 model range, the Fiat 500L Trekking combines sheer fun and distinguished styling with a very tough, smart and well-equipped family car, good for on or off-road motoring, thanks to Fiat’s unique wheel traction system.
The 500L Trekking has raised suspension, giving the driver ‘king of the road’ status and providing great family viewing. Although not 4-wheel powered, its robust 4WD drive styling on the outside is both practical and great to look at. Redesigned bumpers, 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lamps and attractive black and silver trims complete a stand-out exterior.
Safety first is a mantra for the 2018 500L Trekking. Airbags, unique ABS city braking system with hill hold and stability control protect passenger safety on or off-road. All weather tyres provide outstanding grip in all weathers, and for rougher terrain, the wheel traction system can be activated. The Trekking also comes with rain and light sensors, air conditioning, electric windows, Bluetooth touch controls, multi-function leather trimmed steering wheel, parking sensors and cruise control.
Prices for the Fiat 500L Trekking start at just below £16.5K for the standard 1.4L 95PS petrol. With much lower CO2 emissions and an average mpg of 55.4mpg, the award winning 0.9L Twinair 105PS engine is cheaper to run and surprisingly responsive. This spec adds an additional £1600, as does the entry diesel model, the 1.3L Multijet Trekking with 85PS, clocking an impressive 65.7mpg.
Bigger and more powerful are the 1.6L Multijet diesels, great for the long haul with a full complement of passengers and luggage. When paired with the 500L Trekking, this engine comes with 105 or 120PS, listing at £19,085 and £19,585 respectively.
There is also an automatic Dualogic diesel version of the 2018 500L Trekking with a 1.3L Multijet engine and 85Ps. This is the most economical Trekking in the range, returning an outstanding 67.3mpg in combined conditions.
