The Fiat 500 continues to claim top industry accolades, but not just as a new car – as the latest in a long line of awards for the popular city car demonstrates.
The multi-award winning 500, whose UK sales topped a quarter of a million earlier this year, was recently named the Used Small Car of the Year in the Car Dealer Used Car Awards 2016, held in London.
With a number of impressive trophies already under its belt, including European Car of the Year in 2008, the Fiat 500 has won several ‘City Car’ industry awards this year alone.
For this latest accolade, the three-year-old used Fiat 500 was praised for its residual value, small number of days to sell and its general desirability with leading data companies such as CAP, Glass’s and Auto Trader.
On awarding the Fiat 500, James Baggott, CEO, Car Dealer magazine, said: “The word ‘iconic’ is over-used but it certainly applies in this case and the car is a worthy winner.”
Sebastiano Fedrigo, Head of Brand, Fiat UK, added: “The Fiat 500 has won many accolades, and another from an important title such as Car Dealer is always welcome. The Fiat 500 has continued to sell as a new car, but we know it makes a fantastic used choice too – something that Car Dealer’s experts clearly agree with us on.”
