Fiat 500 reappears on Top 10 UK best-sellers list in April 2012

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 10, 2012

Around 2,600 units of the Fiat 500 model were sold in the United Kingdom in April, bringing it back to the Top 10 new car registrations list, specifically on the 10th spot. The figure pushed the automaker to overall sales of 3,675 units for the same month, an increase of nearly 25% from the 2,941 the company sold during the same period last year.

Sales from January to April reached 16,734 units, up 9.5% from the same period last year. Private registrations increased by 14.8% in April, and are among the factors contributing to the general rise in new vehicle sales, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) revealed.

Marketing director Elena Bernardelli at Fiat Group Automobiles UK Ltd. commented that it is "wonderful to see" the Fiat 500 in the Top 10 once again. She further stated that this proves "what a great success story this remarkable car has been." He related that the vehicle has "always caught the British public's imagination."

Also, the continuing improvements and new ideas from the automaker all help in placing Fiat 500 as one of the best sellers, she added.

These new ideas and continuing enhancements include the 500C convertible, special style editions, sub-100g/km CO2 levels for further environmental benefits and TwinAir technology. 

The Fiat 500 is available for as low as only £9,960 OTR for the 1.2 Pop. This represents great value for the money. The vehicle is available with a choice of ultra-low emissions Euro 5 powerplants, specifically: 69 bhp 1.2-liter, 95 bhp 1.3-liter MultiJet turbodiesel and 85 bhp 0.9-liter TwinAir.
