2012 Fiat Panda Pricing and Specs
When the car arrives at the end of February, customers will have a choice of three engines: a 69bhp 1.2-litre petrol, an 85bhp 0.9-litre TwinAir, and a 75bhp 1.3-litre MultiJet 2 turbo diesel.
With three engines come three trim levels: Pop, Easy and Lounge.
Pop is the cheapest, and when combined with the 1.2 litre petrol gives that excellent starting price of £8,900.
Moving upwards, the cheapest Easy trimmed car is the TwinAir, costing £10,750.
The cheapest Lounge model comes with the TwinAir engine too, and the most expensive car in the whole new Panda range is the 1.3 litre diesel Lounge.
Like the old car, ESP is fitted as standard, as are anti-whiplash head restraints, six airbags and seatbelt pretensioners, but new for 2012 is a ‘Low Speed Collision Mitigation’ system, which can automatically apply the brakes at speeds less than 18.6 mph.
Elena Bernardelli, marketing director of Fiat UK, said: “We are particularly good value when you take into consideration the levels of equipment offered in standard specification across the range – the new Panda should sell really well.”
