A full asking price of £15,000 may seem expensive for a city car, but its off-road capabilities are so impressive that they match those of much bigger SUVs, and we've found a decent discount online for the rugged city car.
The car Fiat Panda 1.3 Multijet 4x4

The discounted price £13,077

Don’t be fooled by its lightweight city car looks, the Panda is surprisingly capable off-road. It’s also the only city car that offers AWD, so while others in the class may drive better they don’t have the off-road ability of the Panda.
It's powered by a good 74bhp 1.3-litre diesel engine that has plenty of low-down torque and is more flexible than the petrol equivalent. The diesel also offers good fuel economy in the real world, as shown by our test result of 53.7mpg.
It’s expensive for a city car, but this discount makes its price a bit more palatable and no rivals can match its off-road ability.
The diesel may be efficient, but its loud even under gentle acceleration.
Should I add any options?
This 4x4 version comes with plenty of kit including alloys, electrically adjustable door mirrors and air-con. Options that are worth consideration include a rear parking sensor for £250, an autonomous braking system for £250, and side airbags for £200.
Anything else I should know?
The discounted price includes a £1000 finance deposit contribution from Fiat when taking out Fiat finance. If not taking out a finance deal, add £1000 to the quoted price.
