It may appear that Fiat put the its 500L on a vigorous diet and sent it to boot camp over the summer, then replaced the L with an X on its 500 emblem. The new 2016 Fiat 500X is a leaner, sportier version of the 500L, which would definitely make the older model jealous if cars had any feelings. If we compare both to the original Fiat 500 the 500L looks like a blown up 500 hatchback with oversized wheel wells and irregular roofline. Meanwhile, the 500X is a jacked up hatch ready to take on some dirt roads and maybe even tackle the mountains. The new model is more proportionate than the 500L, and arguably much better on the eyes.
