The iconic Fiat 500, which this year celebrates its 60th anniversary, took silver in the Best Premium Supermini category after receiving positive feedback from thousands of real owners.

The Fiat 500 not only took the silver award in the overall category, it was ranked highest in four of the judging categories for ‘Interior and Comfort', ‘Practicality and Boot Space', ‘Infotainment, Connectivity, and Electrics' and ‘MPG and Running Costs'.

Driver Power - the largest new car customer satisfaction survey in the UK - uses data from more than 50,000 car owners to rank models on everything from reliability to performance.

Alejandro Noriega, Head of Brand at Fiat UK, said: "We are delighted that the Fiat 500 has been honoured in this way, especially in this landmark year for the model. This award means so much as it's based on real feedback from our customers and shows we continue to produce a model which really appeals to them."

The Fiat 500 is available with a starting price of £11,490 OTR, for a 1.2-litre 69hp Pop. For more information on the new Fiat 500 please visit www.fiat.co.uk or to locate your nearest Fiat dealer visit www.fiat.co.uk/dealers.
