The team attempt to prove that small, underpowered hatchbacks geared for fuel efficiency on thin fuel-saving tires can be fun to drive (despite their relative lack of power) by travelling 750 miles from the Livadia Palace in the Crimean Peninsula all the way to the northern border of Ukraine with Belarus. Richard drove the Ford Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost, Jeremy drove the Volkswagen Up!, James drove the Dacia Sandero. The segment reaches its climax with a race to see who can run out of fuel faster on the road between the city of Kiev and the radiation contaminated Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.
Just as in the case of 500L, the 500L Living MPW (multi-purpose wagon) comes with five engines – two petrol and three diesel units. Our tester came equipped with the 105 hp 1.6 liter 4 cylinders engine with Start&Stop. This is one of the best diesel engines that Fiat installs on the entire 500L range. It’s not very refined, but it’s very elastic and offers a healthy 320 Nm of torque – problem is that the 7 seats Living model has ~120 kg more compared to Trekking or the standard 500L and even if the engine does a great job, at the end of the day it feels a little bit too week for this car; even without passengers onboard.The best solution from our point of view is to get the 120hp 1.6 liter engine that Fiat started to install from November 2013. Those 15hp will make a big difference.
As in the case of Trekking, the six-speed manual gearbox is controlled by a gear leaver that is soft – but there’s a lot of travel on the clutch pedal.
Also, the gear stick it’s huge and some will consider it annoying. First gears are short to maximize traction, while 5th and 6th gears are longer to help maintain fuel consumption and engine noise at acceptable levels.
We’ve tested this car for more than 1500 km, and we’ve noticed that the Start&Stop system has a little bit of delay so you have to get used to it – but it does a great job when it comes to fuel economy.
That being said, on the highway, the 500L Living will eat about 4.6 liters of diesel fuel for every 100km. That’s the best value I’ve been able to achieve with AC off and no passengers inside. In normal city conditions expect about 7 – 7.5 liters / 100km.Soft is the right word here. Everything is soft, from suspension, steering, brakes … everything. However, considering how and for what this car was designed I’m not sure this is a bad thing. Fiat says “the new 500L Living is a car for moments of relaxation and travel in comfort”.
The body control is decent at low speeds for an MPV but as soon as you want to enter a corner a little faster, the soft MacPherson front and compact multi-link rear suspension will show its weakness and the car will get a pronounced b-roll effect. But again, it was designed for comfort not sportiveness.
The electric steering is reasonably direct, light as a feather lock-to-lock action for parking structures. Sometimes it gets stuck if you’re into a corner and push hard the acceleration – it completely loses its elasticity. City-mode is standard and is a great feature to have.
Impressively, the brakes are very strong and you don’t have to push the pedal with 2 feet to stop the car. What I find important to note is that the ESP can intervene in a rollover situation by detecting if a wheel has left the ground via it ERM (Electronic Rollover Mitigation) system – very important for a car high enough and not too wide. ERM brakes individual wheels and reduces the driving torque to prevent roll over and to stabilize the vehicle.Fiat says there are more than 6,000 possible interior space configurations, as well as 22 compartments of different sizes.
The seats are soft and offer good lumbar support. Not so great is the lateral support. What I don’t understand is why there’s no armrest for the passenger! Yes – only the driver has armrest.
The Uconnect “infotainment” system comes with a TomTom Navigation. Nothing bad here, TomTom is great, easy to use and precise – only that the microprocessor inside this system is very slow, and the 5-inch screen is too small. The Lounge trim also includes a back-up camera and park assist. Three easy-to-use knobs operate the dual-zone climate control system, similar to Alfa Romeo.
When it comes to the luggage compartment, the 500L Living is truly remarkable. Keep in mind that this is 20 cm shorter than a C-segment Station Wagon and yet if offers 1584 liters if you fold down all seats. By contrast, the 2014 Ford Focus offers 1,502 litres while the Opel Astra offers only 1295 liters with the rear seat backs folded down. In addition Fiat offers the ‘Cargo Magic Space’ system – a platform that can be adjusted on three levels, separating fragile objects from heavy ones.
This is a unique car – it can be compared somehow to the old Multipla model but clearly looks much better. The ride is very comfortable, and you can carry up to seven people with a vehicle that has only 4 meters and 35 centimeters. Keep in mind that, for example, the Renault Grand Scenic has 22 cm more while the Citroën C4 Grand Picasso is 24 cm longer. In addition, it offers up to 1584 litres of cargo space – and you can obtain a flat loading surface for the entire length of the passenger compartment (2.60 meters).
The engine is a little bit noisy, but the gearbox comes to the rescue; 5th and 6th gears are longer to help maintain engine noise at acceptable levels.
Visibility is great from all seats, making it an excellent long range cruiser. The interior is very practical with Fold&Tumble 2nd row and fold-in-floor 3rd row.
Not so great are the headlights. Main beam makes almost no difference.Tune into Top Gear Season 21 Episode 4 on BBC 2 on 8 p.m. Sunday, February 23. While Jeremy is busy driving the most beautiful coachbuilt Alfa Romeo in the world (a.k.a. the Disco Volante), Richard Hammond finds himself in the dunes of Abu Dhabi in a six-wheeled Mercedes G63 6X6. Captain Slow will have his hands full with a Caterham 160, and we're not even sure how he is going to do with the much quicker, 620R.
The Caterham 160 would seem to be a lot like James May. It is classic, practical, and at only 80 horsepower, it needs to rely on its charm to get it around anywhere very quickly. However, the 620R boasts over 300 horsepower through an incredibly lightweight chassis, which results in 0-60 in about 2.8-seconds. Will May survive the 620R? You're going to have to tune in to find out.
It was back in September that Alfa gave Touring Superleggera their blessing to coachbuild the Disco Volante. This is not exactly a ground-up custom build, as customers must first provide the donor 8C Competizione, and then it is transformed into a Disco. It will be interesting to see if Clarkson thinks the transformation is ultimately worth the trouble.
The Mercedes-Benz G63 that Hammond will be piloting is a beast at 544 horsepower and 560 lb-ft or torque. It gets the brunt of its excitement from a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8. While the extra set of wheels might have come in handy in the rugged Australian terrain where the armed forces use a similar vehicle; in Abu Dhai, where the sand is almost as smooth as its highways, Hammond is going to have no trouble showing off what it does best--going fast.
