The Fiat 500 has been presented with the Best City car award at the 2011 Fleet World Honours in London.

The Fleet World judges recognised the Fiat 500 for its looks, efficiency, residual values and low running costs. Steve Moody, editor of Fleet World and chairman of the judging panel, says: "The cheeky 500 proves time and again that it is a car people love, and with its innovative new TwinAir engine it offers thrills and efficiency in equal measure, taking the class leader even further ahead of the rest."

"Another award from a top title is always welcome," says Elena Bernardelli, marketing director, Fiat Group Automobiles UK. "The Fiat 500 has continued to sell well to retail customers and has caught the imagination of large and small fleets too, so we are delighted to see further support from Fleet World in this excellent category win."

There are three different trim levels available for the Fiat 500 - Pop, Sport and Lounge and is available with a variety of ultra-low emissions Euro 5 engines: 85bhp 0.9-litre TwinAir, 69 bhp 1.2-litre and 100bhp 1.4-litre petrol, and 95 bhp 1.3-litre MultiJet turbodiesel. Prices start at £9,995 OTR.
