Bargain time for 500L?

by David Zatz on

The Fiat 500L, despite garnering some publicity as the car chosen by the Pope for his American commute (though not for parade duty), is also the most heavily discounted FCA car for United States buyers.  The company is offering $2,500 to $4,500 back, easily beating the #2 cars – Ram 1500 and the Chrysler 300/300C ($500-3,500 and $750-3,500 respectively).

The Fiat 500L  has been slow to move, while Mini Countryman has been relatively popular. The 500L, which is mostly unrelated to the actual Fiat 500, starts at under $20,000; the top of the line Lounge starts at $24,700 and carries the $4,500 rebate.

Every 500L has the same turbocharged engine as the 500 Abarth and Dodge Dart, with an Aisin six-speed automatic or (except on Lounge) a stick-shift. The $4,500 offer is good on all but the base Pop model.  See our review.
