Fiat Panda

The Fiat Panda is a five door supermini that manages to stand out from the crowd without being controversial or arrogant, it just gets on with the job of being a great little car without the need to shout it from the rooftops. The panda has been refreshed for 2017, very little noticeable change on the outside but on the inside offers a new solution for an infotainment system. Fiat calls it the Uconnect as with the rest of its models, which uses through a dedicated app the driver’s smartphone as a gateway to all the usual services, and includes Bluetooth, audio streaming, USB data located in the glove compartment, voice recognition system, recharging port with USB port on the dashboard, AUX port, MP3, and the “Panda Uconnect” interface via Bluetooth.

 

The Panda is available in three versions, the Life, Cross, and Sport guises. The Panda has three engines to choose from, the much lauded twin air 0.9 petrol with 89bhp, and a four cylinder 1.2 litre petrol that offers entry level value value and perky performance, top speed is 102 miles per hour and 0-62 time is a respectable 14.2 seconds, claimed economy is 44.8 miles per gallon.  The new 1.0 litre mild hybrid can offer a (very) small assistance under acceleration and for economy on the 69bhp engine.

There is no Automatic Panda.
