The 500L Easy starts at an MSRP of $20,195 (plus $800 destination charge).

The 500L Trekking offers a different exterior look, with two-piece front and rear fascias with Grigio Chiaro (graphite) inserts, fog lamps, unique lower front- and rear-fascia accents, Grigio Chiaro wheel arch and body-side sill moldings, Grigio Chiaro recessed license plate area and lower left- and right-side reflector surrounds, and larger 17 x 7-inch aluminum wheels with wider 225/45R17 all-season tires.
