Fiat 500 is Sunday Times City Car Category winner for 2016

Fiat has got off to a smashing start in 2016 with the Fiat 500 winning the City Car category in the Sunday Times Top 100 Cars 2016 awards.

The retro classic has just recently been updated with 1,900 revisions, all designed to enhance the ownership experience and make it even more stylish than before. When speaking about the Fiat 500, The Sunday Times Columnist Giles Smith said that people “loved it” with even tough critic Jeremy Clarkson describing it as a “hoot” to drive.

Judges praised the new Fiat 500 for its charming looks, spirited driving characteristics and new technologies.

The new Fiat 500 went on sale in the UK in September 2015 with a revised exterior including new bumpers, front and rear light systems and new colour options. Inside, cabin comfort has improved along with the addition of a new Uconnect infotainment system with optional DAB and TomTom satellite navigation. The engine range has also been enhanced, offering more efficiency and eco-friendliness for 2016, and there are even more personalisation possibilities thanks to a new range of expressive Second Skins.

However, the winning streak didn’t stop there for Fiat as the new Fiat Spider was also named by the Sunday Times as one of the most eagerly awaited models of 2016.

Commenting on the win, Sebastiano Fedrigo, Head of Brand, Fiat UK said that he was “delighted to kick off 2016 with a category win in the prestigious and influential Sunday Times Top 100 Cars” and that it was “wonderful” that the experts appreciate the enhancements that have been made to the Fiat 500 which keep it “ahead of the pack.”

The Fiat 500 is currently available for less than £160 per month, for more information about this offer click here.
