FIAT cars are generally known for their compact size, but pet owners in search of a new car shouldn’t let that reputation dissuade them from the automaker. At FIAT of Winter Haven, your FIAT dealership serving customers from Auburndale, FL and beyond, we believe that both the FIAT 500L and FIAT 500X are great options for style-conscious dog owners in search of a new car.

The FIAT 500L and FIAT 500X are the larger, roomier models in the FIAT line-up. Both keep the design cues that made the FIAT 500 such a hit when it first came to market, but with slightly different flavors. The FIAT 500L is a bit more “grown-up,” a little less cute, and the FIAT 500X is designed for a more rugged look. Both models offer ample cargo-room with their rear seats folded flat – ideal for large dogs that need plenty of room to sprawl out on long trips.

Of course, the differences between the two vehicles runs deeper than their design aesthetics. The 2017 FIAT 500L is made for the city, and offers best-in class storage despite its small size. It can also be outfitted with a wide range of comfort and tech options, such as a dual-pane power sunroof, which make long rides all the more fun for both you and your furry family member.

The 2017 FIAT 500X is more the adventurer’s car. Available with an all-wheel drive drivetrain and electronic stability control, the FIAT 500X is built for anyone that likes their relaxation a little bit messy. The car is also features an optional roof rack, perfect for hauling your gear when your pup is hogging up the back seat and/or trunk space.
