The new Fiat Panda 4x4 is a vehicle perfectly balanced for off-road trekking and city cruising. From the Pomigliano d'Arcocar plant in Naples the Fiat team has taken the distinct Panda aesthetic, given it a sure sense of adventure, and come up with a superb end-product. This vehicle is unique in that it has the agility of a compact car and yet the sheer presence of a powerful SUV. An increased ride height, front and rear bumper guards, and chunky wings with protective plastic mouldings all add to the Panda 4x4's domineering stance. A steel underbelly protector also ensures this is a model that walks the walk.
Like its hatchback counterpart - the Fiat Panda - the 4x4 model exhibits the same artistic continuity inside as out. The unique Fiat 'squircle' is worked throughout the interior to pleasing effect, and eco-friendly fabric interiors are both tactile and attractive. The car boasts an ample boot space of 225-litre, which can be more than doubled by utilizing the 60:40 split folding rear seats. There are also 14 separate storage compartments placed conveniently about the interior to hold more colloquial items.
The Panda 4x4 comes with either the 75bhp 1.3-litre MultiJet II 16v diesel engine or the 875cc 85bhp Turbocharged award-winning TwinAir petrol engine. Both are equipped with fuel-saving Start&Stop technology as standard, and both are highly efficient - the 1.3 Multijet boasts a combined fuel consumption of up to 60.1mpg. In tougher off-road conditions the ELD (Electronic Locking Differential) system can be activated. With one press of a button drivers can lock the front and rear axles to maximise traction in even the harshest environments.
The Panda 4x4 has been awarded an impressive four-star safety rating from the experts at Euro NCAP. The Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) works in conjunction with an Anti-Lock Breaking System (ABS) to give drivers maximum control, whilst four airbags and ISOFIX attachments come fitted as standard and minimise danger in case of collision.
