The Fiat 500 has collected yet another prize to pop into its stylish boot, with the hot-selling 500 taking the prize for the greenest supermini on the UK market in the 2008 ‘What Car?’ Green Car of the Year Awards.

‘What Car?’ and its associated web sites are consulted by more than a million UK car buyers looking for advice on what car to buy and its exhaustive roadtests are renowned for their commitment to finding the best car buys.

This award is the latest in a long line of awards that the 500 has collected, topped by the European Car of the Year prize, while sales demand for the 500 is still at remarkable levels with more than 100,000 outstanding orders from markets around the world.
