DONLOE ON CARS: The 2019 Fiat 500L


The 2019 FIAT 500L TREKKING in a Grigio Scuro (grey metallic) exterior with a Nero (black) interior is too cool for school!

This compact car has a rep of not being particularly attractive. But, I beg to differ. All I can say about this mini-car is that it is adorbs and has a lot of character!

What’s not to like about the 2019 FIAT 500L?

If you have to get from point A to point B, you may as well do it in style. Do it in a 2019 Fiat 500L. The car attracts attention on the road. Don’t look too hard, though, because Fiat will probably redesign this car soon.

The interior design is user-friendly, convenient and well thought out. The seats are firm and comfortable. The view from the driver’s seat is fab. The windshield is perfect. There is plenty of passenger and cargo room. There is also lots of storage space. From the outside, the interior is really deceiving. Once you open the door and get inside, you will realize there is a rather large interior. The gauges are upgraded. The window controls on the center panel are easy to reach. Highlights include the heated seats, power heated mirrors and the USB ports in the front and back. Believe it or not, there is a backseat. At 5’ 10”, there is no way I could get back there!  Note** The rear seats don’t fold completely flat.

This car is hella cool! It’s sporty, looks good and handles well!
