Being a little tacker doesnâ€™t stop a car from achieving a five star Euro NCAP rating and the diminutive Fiat 500 is the proof if any was needed.
Organizers of the worldâ€™s toughest independent safety testing organization have praised the Fiat 500 and its safety features that allow it to challenge and beat larger cars when it comes to accident protection.
â€œI am particularly happy to see the adult occupant protection results for the Fiat 500. It is encouraging to see a small car offering high protection for its adult occupants,â€ said Euro NCAPâ€™s Secretary-General Adrian Hobbs.
Selling up a storm in Europe, the cheeky new-comer will no-doubt prove just as successful in Australia, combining personality, charm, economy and now a five star Euro NCAP rating.
â€œThese results prove that there is real engineering and technological substance behind the cheeky good looks of the new Fiat 500,â€ says David Stone, General Manager for Fiat in Australia.
