Every Car That Was Discontinued In 2022
This may not come as a surprise, since Fiat’s sales in the United States have been rather poor. Per Motor1, Fiat only managed to shift just 475 of these 500Ls in 2020. It wasn’t a particularly successful item in the Fiat roster. Even in its prime, Fiat only managed to sell 12,000 units of the 500L per year, which isn’t something you’d call a grand success. And the reason is pretty simple.
The 500L is utterly a chore to drive, has some of the worst and cheap-looking interiors, and accelerates like an old-fashioned 20th-century item. At least, that’s what Car and Driver had to say. Adding insult to injury, the Fiat 500L, despite being a near-$27,000 prospect, has no form of driver assistance tech available. You don’t get auto-emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, or adaptive cruise control. What Fiat offers you are a backup camera and rear parking sensors. No wonder sales tanked, forcing the Italian carmaker to axe the model in the U.S.
