What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For There's plenty of space for four, it's fairly refined and cheap

Against The 1.2 engine is noisy and base cars are under-equipped

Verdict Cheap to buy and a pleasure for driver and passengers alike

Go for… 1.2 Dynamic AirCon

Avoid… 1.3 TD MultiJet Sporting/1.2 4x4

Fiat Panda Hatchback
  • 1. There's enough room for four adults inside - impressive for such a small car
  • 2. If you go for the MultiJet diesel, be prepared to keep an eye on your fuel and oil consumption
  • 3. The car's reliability is basically good, but a few cars suffer clutch judder
  • 4. The boot is a good size considering the size of the car
  • 5. A few cars suffer from a jammed tailgate release mechanism
