The Fiat 500L is getting a facelift and spy photographers have caught it on camera during cold weather testing.

Sporting heavy camouflage on its entire body, the Fiat 500L’s facelift will likely be substantial as the Italian automaker attempts to make it more attractive to consumers. The standard Fiat 500 just received an update and you can expect the 500L to get similar changes like new headlights with LED daytime running lights, new fog lights, front and rear fascias and other minor changes.

Although it’s hard to see with all the camouflage up front, the front bumper is getting a redesign while changes to the rear bumper should be more minor. Inside the cabin, Fiat will give the 500L a larger infotainment screen and upgraded materials so it stays relevant until the next-generation model arrives in a few years.
