The perfect car for city living, the Panda combines tough, rugged design with a comfortable interior to help you tackle the streets of your city.
The inspiration for the Panda’s design is the “squircle”, (a square with rounded edges) which has been incorporated into all areas of the Panda’s blueprint. The soft, contoured edges are more than simply aesthetic; they help improve aerodynamics when built into the bodywork and also make the most of the interior space - eliminating the sharp corners of a square makes for fewer obstructions and inaccessible areas. The horizontal grille and rounded “jewel” headlights, that are placed higher than usual to improve illumination and prevent breakages, highlight the exterior. The interior has received similar attention to detail and is designed to save you time and make life that little bit easier. A range of 14 handy storage compartments and a compact handbrake ensures there’s enough room to store everything you might need, and the clever design means the Panda maintains its compact nature ideal for urban life. The raised driving seat gives you the view needed for manoeuvring and grants good visibility from all angles.
The Panda has a range of engines, all of which are expertly engineered to provide high performance as well as low fuel consumption. Options include the award-winning turbocharged 0.875-litre 85bhp TwinAir petrol engine, which delivers power when needed whilst maintaining fuel efficiency, or the 1.3-litre 75bhp MultiJet II diesel engine. Both are equipped with Fiat’s Intelligent Start&Stop system that decreases fuel consumption, saving both money and the environment.
The Panda is packed with useful, inventive technology that is in keeping with today’s world to make driving easier and more enjoyable. Optional Blue&Metm –TomTom 2 LIVE technology provides hands-free entertainment and navigation, making you and your passenger’s ride enjoyable and stress-free, while steering wheel buttons and voice controls make controlling your environment a breeze. Electronic driving aids such as ABS and ESP help make your driving as safe as it can be, while all-round airbags, advanced seatbelts and anti-whiplash head restraints keep you secure in the event of an accident.
