Fiat 500L Beats Special Edition

Fiat has announced a Beats Special Edition of the 500L, based around the Fiat 500L Trekking and inspired by Beats Audio electronics.

The outside features two-tone grey/black paint, 17" alloy wheels, and flared wheel arches, side skirts and bumper inserts all finished in black, as well as chrome finishes on the mirrors, front end and boot handle. It also has nice finishing touches, of red brake callipers and wing mirror inserts.

Inside, the high specification continues with dual-zone climate control, a matt-grey dashboard and the Total Black pack that adds a black 'eco' half-leather interior, with '500' logos embroidered on the front seats. It has the Trekking's raised suspension and snow tyres, for extra grip in poor conditions.

The highlight is of course the sound system. The Beats Edition comes with a powerful 520W stereo, handpicked by Dr Dre's Beats Audio team to provide a rich, immersive experience, with a pair of subwoofers and seven speakers.

There are a range of economical petrol and diesel engines available, as well as additional extras such as rear parking camera, a five-inch touch screen, DAB radio and sat-nav.
