Fiat Uno346 points

Car of The year
Two remarkable small cars were top protagonists in this contest. Fiat Uno won by small margin and was extremely popular, but Peugeot 205 kept much longer a high market demand. The practical Uno was an ideal product for a limited budget, its basic version still keeping the veteran OHV 903 cc engine from 127, with 5-speed gearbox as an option; an OHC 1.3 with 70 hp was the alternative for good performance. Roomy cabin, good roadholding and very affordable prices were generally appreciated.
