i think its a mix of both tbh as the windows look identical but i cant blame them as the countryman seems to be selling well so why not try and take a leaf out of bmws design book :)

Wasn't the 500L the original "Multipla" ?

The 'original' 500L was the luxury (L = "Lusso", the Italian for luxury) model of the nuova 500, an updated version that had interior hinges, an updated dash and other upgraded trim bits.

I say 'original' in inverted commas because what people call the "original 500" was actually the "new" 500 of its time.....new compared to the true original 500 of the 1930s and 1940s, the Topolino, so-called because it looked like Mickey Mouse (stickey-out ears as headlights)

The original Multipla was the 600 Multipla of the 50s and 60s.
