Fiat will add another ‘500’ model to its range at the end of this year in the form of a seven-seat MPV. Based on the 500L, but 20cm longer, the 500L MPW will be sold as a five-seater with two fold-away seats for occasional use.

In five-seat mode it has a 638-litre boot, while at launch, the car will be available with two petrol engines – a 95hp 1.4 and 105hp 0.9 TwinAir Turbo – plus two diesels: a 105hp 1.6  and a 85hp 1.3.

This last engine will also be available with an automatic gearbox. Prices are expected closer to the car’s on sale date.
