Review

People may talk about things like “charm” and “character” with the Fiat Panda, but the cold hard facts that we measure cars by prove it to be a poor choice. By far the worst thing about it is an utterly abysmal Euro NCAP safety rating, and that alone makes it not recommendable.

Trim: Lounge

It’s a bit of a price hike for a Lounge version, and you don’t really get much of additional note, outside of electric heated door mirrors. It constitutes mostly cosmetic changes, including alloy wheels and body-coloured door trims.,

Engine: 1.2

This four-cylinder petrol is one of the Panda’s better engines. It’s not particularly powerful but it copes just fine with around-town work and feels comparatively willing. It’s smooth, too, and should prove efficient enough for most.
