Introduction

What Car? says...

Boxy, bite-size, SUV-style cars seem to have a natural ability to generate a cult following. The latest Fiat Panda is a prime example. Its no-nonsense design has struck a chord with enthusiasts and buyers over many years and it's a common sight in plenty of bustling European cities.

On paper, it’s a great value proposition, which puts it squarely in our Value Car class. SUV rivals you might want to consider include the Dacia Duster, MG ZS and Suzuki's Ignis and Jimny models. But you might want to look at conventional city cars, such as the Hyundai i10, Kia Picanto, Toyota Aygo and Volkswagen Up.

We’re not just looking for low pricing as the be-all and end-all, though. Value cars can also be good to drive, and these days there’s no need to forgo the fancy infotainment systems and other mod cons that we’ve come to expect in posher and pricier cars.

Speaking of which, the Panda is an old car, now, but one that Fiat claims is still in touch with the demands of the day; the latest version is powered by a mild-hybrid engine, with the aim of reducing emissions while increasing performance and fuel economy

So, does the Fiat Panda still deserve a place on your shortlist? How does it stack up against rivals? And which version should you choose if you want to buy one? Read on to find out. And, whichever value car you decide best suits your needs, head to our New Car Buying pages for a great, no-hassle deal, where we promise to make your pounds stretch even farther.
