Fancy a brand-new car this Christmas?

We’re giving one lucky winner the chance to win a brand-new Fiat 500 Lounge in time for Christmas.
Simply snap to win
We’re sending a festively-wrapped brand-new car out onto the streets of London, Birmingham and Manchester on 17th-19th December.

To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is snap a photo of the Christmas present with the live price tracker when you see it in town, and upload your picture, tagging Auto Trader UK and #autotraderxmas on Twitter or Instagram. If the price tracker shows the correct pre-haggled price of the car, you’ll be entered into a prize draw to win it!
Pre-haggled prices
Lots of brand new cars on Auto Trader come with pre-haggled prices.

This means we work with dealers to list a lower price than the RRP of the new car, saving you time and guesswork – you’ll know you’re getting a great price for your new car.

Do you know how much you could save with a pre-haggled price?

This Christmas, our present comes with a live price tracker on top. The price on display fluctuates between the RRP of the car and the actual pre-haggled price shown on Auto Trader.

To be in with a chance of winning, you’ll simply need to guess the correct pre-haggled price for the Fiat 500 and send us a photo of that figure when it flashes up on the tracker. Easy!
Where will we be this Christmas?
Our festively wrapped Fiat, complete with Christmas bow, will be touring retail areas in the following locations in the run-up to Christmas:

• Tuesday 17th December – London
• Wednesday 18th December – Birmingham
• Thursday 19th December – Manchester

Whether you’re out Christmas shopping or going about your normal day, be sure to snap our car on Instagram or Twitter with the Auto Trader handle and hashtag and the correct pre-haggled price of the Fiat 500
Fiat 500 Lounge at a glance
