With retail sales up 53% year-on-year, Fiat Auto's success story in the UK continues to gather momentum. This sustained success is being spearheaded by the Punto, which is currently achieving the highest sales ever of a new Fiat in the UK. It is seen by the company as a testimony to customers' recognition that Fiat Auto continues to offer remarkable value in a market place which until recently has been marked by considerable uncertainty, prior to publication of the DTI's Order on the sale of new cars in the UK.
