The Fiat 500 continues to scoop top industry accolades, after taking the award for Best City Car in the 2011 Fleet World Honours, announced today in London.
The multi-award-winning 500, which is into its third year on sale in the UK, already has an impressive list of trophies, including Car of the Year 2008, along with several from the UK’s leading consumer and business titles.
The car’s good looks, efficiency, excellent residual values and low running costs were all praised by the award’s judges. Evidence of the Fiat 500’s environmental credentials was highlighted last year when the model’s sub-100g/km CO2 TwinAir version was made exempt from London’s Congestion Charge.
Steve Moody, editor of Fleet World and chairman of the judging panel, says: “The cheeky 500 proves time and again that it is a car people love, and with its innovative new TwinAir engine it offers thrills and efficiency in equal measure, taking the class leader even further ahead of the rest.”
“Another award from a top title is always welcome,” says Elena Bernardelli, marketing director, Fiat Group Automobiles UK. “The Fiat 500 has continued to sell well to retail customers and has caught the imagination of large and small fleets too, so we are delighted to see further support from Fleet World in this excellent category win.”
Available with a choice of ultra-low emissions Euro 5 engines: 85bhp 0.9-litre TwinAir, 69 bhp 1.2-litre and 100bhp 1.4-litre petrol, and 95 bhp 1.3-litre MultiJet turbodiesel, the Fiat 500 can be ordered in three different trim levels – Pop, Sport and Lounge.
With a starting price of just £9,665 OTR, the Fiat 500 represents outstanding value for money.
