FIAT Accolades and Awards
Since the reintroduction of the FIAT brand to the U.S. market in 2011, this vaunted Italian automaker has steadily increased its share of the U.S. market after a 27-year absence. 2011 saw the introduction of a completely redesigned 500 series of automobile that like many of today’s cars is quite retro in style, a factor that only helps to improve this brands image and popularity.
Despite the newly designed FIAT 500’s close resemblance to those models sold up until 1984, the two vehicles are as different as night and day. A fact that buyers have been quick to realize as sales of these amazing compact cars have skyrocketed. Not only have the various forms of the FIAT 500 become some of the most popular compact cars on the U.S. market, but as recently as 2014, the brand has been the recipient of numerous awards.
Self-Expression – All Part of the Mystique
Today’s FIAT brand offers buyers a vehicle that allows them to express themselves with a wide range of trim levels, body styles, accessories, and of course bright, fun colors. More importantly, the new line of FIAT 500 vehicles offer performance on a level that the American driver has never seen from this Italian car maker before. Both automotive enthusiasts and industry experts alike find the new FIAT® brand to be among the most innovative and refreshing to come along in years.
No one knows quite as well as FIAT buyers in the Daytona Beach area that this Italian automaker makes an incredible line of vehicles. This can be further evidenced by the number of awards and accolades the company has been the recipient of in 2014. In particular, the 2014 500 has received a significant number of awards, which should come as no surprise to anyone who has had a chance to own or at least drive one of these incredible compact cars.
One of the Coolest Cars
In 2014 the 500 was voted “One of the Coolest Cars for Under $18,000” by Consumer Digest Magazine. When you consider the number of small cars under this price barrier, this is quite an accolade and one that is based solely on what buyers have to say. The FIAT 500 is a sophisticated yet stylish car that offers buyers a design filled with sharp lines, sleek curves, and a highly aerodynamic style that makes it very fuel efficient.
However, in as much as the outside of this little gem is quite stylish, when you open the doors you will find the cabin to be quite spacious, very luxurious in appointment, and filled with tons of the latest technology. For those who want even better fuel efficiency, the 2014 FIAT 500e was voted the Best Electric Car of 2013 by Road and Track Magazine.
Only the Beginning
Great looks and a luxurious interior are just the beginning as the 2014 models come with features such as air conditioning, a built-in floor console, cabin air filtration, a leather-wrapped steering wheel that includes audio controls, and five cup holders. Along with this you get sun visors with vanity mirrors, a rear cargo shelf panel, and floor mats.
As you can see from the list of awards that the FIAT 500 series has earned since its reintroduction to the U.S. market, there is simply no reason why you shouldn’t go ahead and buy one of these amazing vehicles today. They feature everything you could ever want in a compact car and more at a price that is hard to beat.
