The award-winning Fiat 500 supermini has received further confirmation of its green credentials after scooping top honours for its 1.2 Pop version in the Green Supermini category of the What Car? Green Awards in London.

The awards, which took place at the British International Motor Show, were designed to highlight and recognise the UK motor industry’s most economical and environmentally-friendly cars.

The Fiat 500 is currently Car of the Year 2008 and has won a host of other accolades including CAR Magazine Car of the Year, Fifth Gear SmallCar of the Year, EuroCarBody 2007 and Auto Europa 2008.

Commenting on the latest honour, Steve Fowler, editor-in-chief of What Car? says: “The Fiat 500 is the perfect green city car. It’s small, chic and, with an efficient petrol engine, it’s low on CO2 and equally harmful local pollutants.”

Available in New Zealand with a choice of three frugal, ultra-low emissions, Euro 5-ready engines: 69 bhp 1.2-litre and 100 bhp 1.4-litre petrol, or 75 bhp 1.3-litre MultiJet turbodiesel, the new Fiat 500 can be ordered in three different trim levels — Pop, Sport and Lounge.

With a starting price of just $26,990, the new Fiat 500 represents outstanding value for money and positions the car well below its benchmark rivals. At the top end of the range, a highly specified version with a larger engine costs only $31,990 — a price that includes air conditioning and alloy wheels as standard.
