    With a 'Traction+' traction control system (a system that improves handling on difficult and slippery terrain, fitted as standard) the 500L Trekking model is 'intended for sports enthusiasts and outdoor activity fans' says Fiat.

    Available with all engine types in the range, the Fiat 500L Trekking can be ordered with a choice of the 95 HP 1.4 16v, 105 HP 0.9 TwinAir Turbo and 105 HP 1.6 MultiJet II and 85 HP 1.3 MultiJet II turbodiesel engines (also with Dualogic gearbox). The 105 HP 1.6 MultiJet II turbodiesel reaches a top speed of 181 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 11.3 seconds.

    The 500L Trekking also features 'City Brake Control', designed to help negotiate city traffic. Driving at speeds of under 30 km/h, the system detects the presence of obstacles in front of the car and automatically brakes if the driver fails to intervene promptly to avoid collisions. It can avoid impact completely ("Collision Avoidance") or minimise the consequences of a possible impact ("Collision Mitigation").

    In keeping with the outdoor character, the 500L Trekking features specific bumpers with protective shield, for 'an even more aggressive and dynamic look', and a high ride to enable it to drive over rough ground more effectively. Also supplied as standard are the new 'snowflake' 17" diamond alloy rims with M+S tyres for maximum road holding and traction as well as stone effect burnished wing mouldings, satin handles and brushed steel side mouldings.

    On the interior, the 500L Trekking features a new high-tech fabric seat upholstery with eco-leather inserts in two different combinations, magnesio grey fabric with leather inserts or black fabric with white inserts. For music lover the 500L comes with a 520 Watt Beats Hi-Fi Audio System which saw Fiat sound engineers work alongside the founders of Beats, Dr. Dre. They created a sound system that boasts 520 Watts of power - split between two 80 Watt mid-woofers, two 40 Watt tweeters, two 60 Watt full-ranges and one 80 + 80 Watt subwoofer. Customers can also order a €249 optional extra Lavazza 'A Modo Mio' pod system that makes espresso coffee in a car. Fitted with a 12 V plug which fits in the central console, the coffee maker only works when the engine is running - for safety reasons the car must be stationary - and it dispenses espresso coffee in less than two minutes.

    The Fiat 500L Trekking comes in 6 different body colours - white, dark metallic grey, black, sand, burgundy, dark metallic green and the new exclusive Sole yellow - teamed with a black or white roof and is available for purchase across Europe from next June, prices to be announced.

    Fiat 500L Trekking at Geneva Motor Show 2013

    First the Fiat 500 'went large' with the 500L and now Fiat has unveiled the 500L Trekking. If the 500L is designed for couples who have outgrown their 500 (read: having children), then the 500L Trekking must be for those who like to indulge in a little off-roading.
    The Trekking model uses Fiat's innovative Traction+ system, which boosts the front-wheel drive only model’s ability to find grip. This avoids slipping and should get drivers out of trouble. By remaining two-wheel drive, Traction+ does away with the extra running costs associated with a 4x4.
