2013 Fiat 500L Live Photos: 2012 Geneva Motor Show

Follow Nelson

Fiat first released the details on the fourth addition to its 500 lineup, the 500L, early last month.

Now there's a handful of new photos of the maxi-mini 500L, live from its official world debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

The “L” in 500L stands for “large” and while this is the biggest model in the Fiat 500 family it will still be one of the smallest cars on the road when it goes on sale in Europe later this year and in the U.S. early next.

As the largest of the 500 range, the 500L commands a taller ride height, marrying the American concept of a compact crossover with the European take on an MPV.

Expected to come in both front- and all-wheel-drive forms, the 500L could do battle with competitors as varied as the MINI Cooper Countryman and the Buick Encore.

As for engines, the European lineup will initially comprise two gasoline units (TwinAir and 1.4-liter) and a turbodiesel unit (1.3 MultiJet II). American versions will likely come exclusively with the 1.4-liter MultiAir unit, possibly with more power than the 101 horsepower and 98 pound-feet of torque found in the 500, though.
