Fiat’s low CO2 cars get thumbs-up from building society

Fiat’s acclaimed green credentials have convinced the Cumberland Building Society to appoint the Italian car manufacturer as sole provider of its branch managers’ company cars for a further 12 months.

The 12-year relationship between Fiat and the Cumberland Building Society will now enter its 13th year as the building society gets ready to take delivery of another six diesel Fiat Bravo 1.6 MultiJet or Grande Punto 1.3 MultiJet models later this year.

Judi Thomson, assistant secretary of the Cumberland Building Society, is happy that the company "doesn’t have to sacrifice our favourite cars to meet our in-house environmental targets".

She said: “We have remained faithful to Fiat for all these years because the vehicles have always proved economical and reliable. Low CO2 emissions make them even more ideal as company cars."

The new Fiat Bravo 1.6 MultiJet and Grande Punto 1.3 MultiJet diesel models both offer fuel economy of up to 62.7mpg on the combined cycle, and low CO2 emissions starting at an impressive 119g/km.
