New FIAT 500 wins City Car award
The new FIAT 500 has won the City Car category in the Sunday Times Top 100 Cars 2016 awards.
The judges noted that the new FIAT 500 is “still charming enough buyers to make it one of Britain’s bestselling cars,” complimenting its appearance, its new touch-screen technology and broader colour palette, not to mention its “…youthful enthusiasm in turns and the fun, lively 0.9-litre TwinAir engine, both of which bring joy to city driving.”
FIAT UK's Sebastiano Fedrigo said: “We’re delighted to kick off 2016 with a category win. It’s wonderful that the experts appreciate the enhancements that we made to our iconic city car, which were introduced to keep the FIAT 500 ahead of the pack in terms of connectivity and technological features while also evolving its unmistakable style and broadening its appeal even further.”
The new FIAT 500 went on sale in the UK in September with enhanced cabin comfort and revised exterior styling, including new bumpers, front and rear light systems and fresh colour options. New Uconnect infotainment systems with optional DAB and TomTom satellite navigation were also introduced. The engine range offers more efficiency and eco-friendliness for 2016 and there are even more personalisation possibilities thanks to a new range of expressive 'Second Skins'.
Prices for the FIAT 500 TwinAir 85hp start at just £13,065 OTR, with prices for the FIAT 500 starting from just £10,890 OTR for the 1.2 litre Pop.
