Biggest in Italy
Fiat Group Automobiles are the largest manufacturer of cars in Italy. Much of the success of the Fiat branded cars has been in Europe, with Italy being its biggest market within Europe. Fiats biggest selling vehicles have historically been aimed at the smaller end of the market, and this is true of todays models, with citycars and supermini cars accounting for 84% of Fiat branded sales.
The Future is Bright
In more recent years Fiat has more purposely pursued a presence in emerging markets, producing the Fiat Palio and Siena for South American markets, as well as releasing the Linea to Latin America and the Middle East, as well as the traditional European stomping ground. The Fiat Automobile Group have won the Car of the Year award 12 times in forty years, which surpasses any other marque. Out of these twelve victories, nine are directly from the Fiat brand.
