Want an All Wheel Drive Fiat 500L?

Fiat 500L Trekking


All Fiat 500L models sold in the US feature an advanced traction control similar to the Traction Plus system used in Europe that enhances drivability on slippery surfaces. Grab a set of snow tires and you'll be surprised how good a 500L can be when the going gets tough. Still, there are those who live in areas where the remote possibility of getting stuck is not an option. For a person in that situation, All Wheel Drive (AWD) can give that extra bit of assurance that nothing mother nature throws at them will slow them down. With that in mind, here is a poll asking if the lack of All Wheel Drive kept you from buying a Fiat 500L.


Even with front wheel drive, the Fiat 500L goes well on low traction surfaces. This European spec Fiat 500L has the traction plus system that enhances traction. All NAFTA Fiat 500 and 500L models use a similar system as standard equipment.

All Wheel Drive Fiat 500L test cars have been spotted running throughout Europe and the US, so something may be in the works. Let Fiat know and vote!

Note: Poll is above story, below the Criswell Fiat advertisement.

I was very close to not buying my 500L Easy because of the lack of AWD. However, I could not find anything comparable with it in the price range I wanted to pay. When a 500L level FIAT with AWD becomes available in the USA, I hope to trade up to it. So far, the Easy has been great, though I'm still avoiding those back road fishing holes.
