The award-winning Fiat 500 city car has received further confirmation of its popularity and value for money after being named among the Top 10 most depreciation resistant cars in the UK.

The findings, from value experts Glass's Guide and reported by industry magazine Auto Trader, show the 100,000-plus UK selling supermini is seventh best among cars that lose their value the least.

The Fiat 500 1.2 Sport is picked out for particular praise by the experts, thanks to "a fun character and good fuel economy, without having to resort to a distinctly un-chic diesel engine".

"I am delighted that the Fiat 500 has again received the praise it deserves," says Elena Bernardelli, marketing director, Fiat Group Automobiles UK Ltd. "It's clear that our customers are benefitting from its remarkable depreciation record, and I'm pleased that industry experts appreciate it too."

The Fiat 500 range starts at £9960 (OTR) for the 1.2 Pop, rising to £19,060 (OTR) for the 500CbyGucci TwinAir, representing outstanding value for money.
