Owners of 2013-2016 Fiat 500L 1.4L U.S. spec models searching for a little more get up and go should look no further than the K&N drop-in replacement air filter, number 33-5015
The Fiat brand was reintroduced to the North American market in Italian Renaissance fashion with the 2011 Fiat 500. Fiat had been absent from North America for 27 years and the retro-inspired Fiat 500 was immediately popular for its Italian styling and fuel efficiency. As quickly as the Fiat 500 was leaving dealership lots, a sub-compact car with cramped rear seating can be a hard pill to swallow for potential buyers. This is exactly why Fiat introduced the 500L, L meaning Large/Lounge, for car buyers who like the undeniable Italian styling but need a little more space.
The Fiat 500L has been equipped with the same 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft torque 1.4L Multiair turbo engine found in the Fiat 500 Abarth performance model to compensate for its larger size. While the 1.4L Multiair turbo engine is pretty responsive, 2013-2016 Fiat 500L owners are searching for a boost in power. Charlie Lobosco, a K&N user from Ohio, emailed K&N saying “I have a Fiat 500L which I like more than I thought. It’s pretty peppy with the (Multiair) engine but we always want more.”
