Fiat 500 Wins The ‘Small Car of the Year’ at News UK Motor Awards

This is the latest Fiat 500 which will never officially come to Malaysia.

Yes, this cute and very stylish compact Fiat has just taken an award from the News UK Motor Awards which are shortlisted by prominent automotive journalists across News UK’s titles and voted for by the general public. This is not the first and last award for this Fiat 500.

In its fourth year, the News UK Motor Awards brings together the collective expertise and audiences of The Times, The Sunday Times, Driving, The Sun and talkSport.

Voted for by consumers and shortlisted by prominent automotive journalists, this new Fiat 500 claims the title of Small Car of the Year at News UK Motor Awards 2021.

Now, why did we say earlier that this Fiat 500 will not come to Malaysia officially? Well, the previous Fiat dealer in Malaysia, Torino Motors closed years ago and since then there has been no new dealer for the Fiat brand in Malaysia.

The reasons are simple. With a national car brand commanding sales volume in a very price sensitive market, Fiat cannot sell their compact stylish cars below RM100k. Then there is issue of low cost China made brands coming into the market at below RM99k which reduces the possibility of profits after high investment in a troubled auto market.

Meanwhile, we congratulate Fiat with this win. As in previous years, the News UK awards have been judged by consumers and automotive journalists across News UK’s titles, championing best-in-class vehicles across all motor segments.

In addition, after the launch in Europe, Israel and Brazil the New 500 is on its way to becoming the first global, “all-in”, all-electric, city car.
