The editors considered which ‘green’ vehicles were the best of the best at the best price. To be considered for the Top 10 Green Car of 2011 list, each vehicle was required to offer fuel economy and CO2 emissions superior to the bulk of vehicle in its class, and at the same time provide all the safety, creature comforts and driving enjoyment that would make it pleasant to own.
Well we know why our 2012 Fiat 500 was chosen, but why don’t you find out for yourself. See what Kbb.com said about our little Fiat:
“Fiat is returning to the U.S. after a 27-year absence, and we're confident this time will be a better experience for all involved. Smaller and less powerful than a Mini Cooper but with more personality than a Toyota Yaris, the Fiat 500 offers a new combination of European heritage and sub-compact practicality. We wish the small Fiat and its little 101-horsepower engine could eek a couple more miles out of each gallon, but it's still one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles available today - and pretty darn charming..”
The Fiat 500 comes in three different styles including the Sport, Loung and Pop.
2012 FIAT 500 Pop
