2014 Fiat 500L

The 2014 Fiat 500L is a good alternative for families who don't want to sacrifice looks for utility. While it has a few idiosyncrasies, the 500L offers head-turning design, solid driving dynamics and class-leading cargo space. Laura Burstein filed this report after her test drive of the Fiat 500L in Baltimore, Maryland.
