​New Fiat 500 Named City Car of the Year in 2016 BusinessCar Awards

- FIAT 500 is voted City Car of the Year by the readers of BusinessCar magazine and www.businesscar.co.uk

- Taking 28 per cent of the votes in the city car segment readers appreciate the New FIAT 500’s combination of style, fun and low running costs

- Two new business-friendly versions join the New FIAT 500 range for 2016 – the 1.3 MultiJet II turbo diesel and the 1.2 ‘Eco’ petrol

The New FIAT 500 has been named City Car of the Year in the 2016 BusinessCar Awards, as decided by the readership of BusinessCar and www.businesscar.co.uk. Rather than being decided by a panel of experts, the BusinessCar Award winners are chosen by the people who rely on their vehicles to help them run their businesses as efficiently as possible on a daily basis.

According to Paul Barker, BusinessCar Editor, “The FIAT 500 is an iconic city car that manages to combine style and fun with benefits of impressive running cost and residual values. To succeed in the business sector there needs to be a case for the head as well as the heart, and our readers obviously feel that the new 500 is well capable of making the case to both.”

According to Sebastiano Fedrigo, Country Manager FIAT UK: “We’re delighted to win the City Car of the Year award in the 2016 BusinessCar Awards because it reflects what the people who use the FIAT 500 day-to-day as part of their businesses really feel about it! And if they loved it before, they’re going to be blown away by the New FIAT 500 with its new styling enhancements, UConnect system with optional TomTom navigation and even lower running costs thanks to the new diesel and ‘Eco’ models!”
