The fully-electric New Fiat 500 has been named City Car of the Year in the annual Auto Express awards.

Along with its notable quality finish and updated technology, the judges praised the car for its style, impressive real-world range and value for money, completing the city car brief brilliantly and helping the New 500 secure its title.

With Action, Passion, Icon and La Prima trim levels, the New 500 is the first fully-electric vehicle from Fiat and provides a range of best-in-class features such as Level 2 autonomous driving technologies, a variety of battery options and a substantial driving range of up to 199 miles – the greatest range of any electric city car on the market today.

Steve Fowler, Auto Express Editor-in-Chief said, “Small really is beautiful when it comes to the winner of our city car crown, the new all-electric Fiat 500. Cheeky looks, compact dimensions, an upmarket interior and advanced infotainment all play a part in the little Latin machine’s success, but it’s the smooth and efficient electric powertrain that helps lift the 500 above its competition in the city car class, which is increasingly turning towards full electrification”.

Greg Taylor, Fiat Country Manager said, “The New Fiat 500 brings affordability and enjoyable city driving to the small EV sector. It is beautifully designed with a modern but iconic silhouette. Fun, responsive and efficient to drive in any urban experience with an impressive battery range, the New 500 is a great option for a consumer looking to buy an electric car”.

The New Fiat 500 is available to order now priced from £20,495 OTR (inc. PiCG).
