Fiat's 500 has defeated the Mini Cooper and Renault Twingo in the battle for whatcar.com readers' affections.
Last week, Fiat revealed that its 500 will cost from £7900 when it goes on sale in January. The Mini costs from £13,025 and the Twingo from £8375.
As a result, we asked readers which of the stylish superminis they would choose.
The Fiat 500 proved the overwhelming winner, attracting 55% of the vote, compared to the Mini's 37% and Twingo's 8%.
'The new Fiat 500 demonstrates, if you didn't already know, just how over-priced the Mini is. I hope that Fiat will be able to keep up with demand for the 500.'
'Fiat 500, per favore! Style, substance – and sexy!'
'The Fiat 500 looks the business.'
'I am a Mini owner, but at those prices you have to give the Fiat 500 a second look.'
'I've just sold my Punto in favour of a Mini One. The Mini has a better ride, feels much more solid, is a better drive, feels higher quality and is made in Britain. I doubt the Panda-based 500 will be that much better than the Punto.'
'The Mini is still a British icon, despite its German owners. It may be expensive, but it is unique.'
