LAS VEGAS — The Fiat 500 has been named to the list of hottest vehicles at the 2011 SEMA Show, beating out a dozen competitors in its category, including the Hyundai Veloster, Ford Fiesta, Honda Civic and Scion iQ.

The Fiat 500 took home honors in the new hottest sport compact car category. The crowded field also included the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze, Chevrolet Sonic, Ford Focus, Honda CR-Z, Lexus IS, Mazda 2, Scion tC and Subaru Impreza.

The Chevrolet Camaro, Ford F-Series and Jeep Wrangler were the winners in their respective categories for the second year in a row.

The Camaro was named the hottest car at the 2011 SEMA Show, blowing past the 2012 Chevrolet Malibu, Chrysler 300, Dodge Challenger, Ford Mustang, Kia Soul, Lexus CT 200h and Mazda 5.

The Ford F-Series was named the hottest truck at the 2011 SEMA Show, defeating the 2012 Chevrolet Silverado, Chevrolet Tahoe, Ford Transit Connect, GMC Canyon, GMC Sierra, Ram, Toyota Tacoma and Toyota Tundra.

The Jeep Wrangler was picked as the hottest 4x4-SUV, beating the 2012 Dodge Durango, Dodge Journey, Ford Explorer, Hyundai Santa Fe, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Kia Sportage, Toyota RAV4 and Toyota FJ Cruiser.

SEMA said the awards were designed to point consumers toward the "most accessory-friendly vehicles on the market."

Show organizers said contender vehicles were picked "based on the support the automaker has demonstrated to the SEMA industry, pre-registrations of the show's feature vehicles, involvement in one or more SEMA OEM collaboration programs, coverage in enthusiast publications and more."

It is the second year for the SEMA awards.

Awesome win. Just means more parts and better prices.

I wish our Fiat studio here would showcase the Mopar accessories. Maybe the other studio up north of our city will have them.

Overall, the Fiat factory display was very disappointing at SEMA. Two cars with very few mods. The factory performance parts aren't very well designed and are expensive. Their "cat-back" system is just the rear muff and sells for over $500. The cold air intake looks like an apprentice plumber designed it with left over parts and won't allow the engine cover to be used. The nicest mod on the car was the use of the Euro Abarth seats

If i remember correctly the engine cover can't be reused on ANY intake system because the factory air box is part of the engine cover so you have to take it off to put any other intake system in.

the engine cover can be left in place with the Competizione Sport Tuning intake system. It's the only true cold air intake on the market that fits the manual and auto versions and allows the stock engine cover to be used

@OregonFiatDude, that picture is what they displayed at the 2010 Sema show as part of the Mopar released vehicles as shown here:



Jeff Gales talks us around the highly customised Fiat 500GT that was shown at the 2010 SEMA Show.
(And again, I agree about the roof scoop, rest of it is really sweet though)
