With a total of six local sales last month, the 500L is currently available with a choice of two engines and has ample seating for five people with dimensions measuring 4.15 m long, 1.78 m wide and 1.66 m high. The MPV/SUV also has a 2.61 m wheelbase which results in a large interior space, including the luggage compartment, which boasts a capacity of almost 400 litres.

Pricing for the model starts at R232 990 for the Easy 1.4l 16V model, but you can read more about it here.
