The facelifted Fiat 500L has been unveiled, and it’s claimed that 40 per cent of its components are new.

Visually, the updated 500L is distinguished by new headlight internals with LED driving lights. The front and rear bumpers have also been restyled, with the lower air intakes given a wider design and extra lashings of bright work.

For the revised 500L, there are three basic models: the Urban, the off-roader-styled Cross, and the more capacious Wagon.

As before, all 500L variants ride on the same 2610mm wheelbase. The Urban and Cross versions are 4240mm and 4280mm long respectively, and can seat up to five people.

The Wagon variant, formerly known as Living, features a lengthened section aft of the C-pillar. This allows for an extra row of seats, and a total capacity of seven people.
