Ownership cost

What used Fiat Panda hatchback will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Fiat Panda hatchback?

A used Panda is far from expensive. It was a cheap car when new and, even though its residuals are quite strong, this is not what you'd call dear.

On top of that, running costs will amount to very little. All engines give excellent fuel economy, the diesel being the most impressive with average consumption of 65.7mpg.

The petrols are frugal, too. The 1.1 will give you 49.6mpg, while the 1.2 performs slightly better with an average of 50.4mpg. Even the four-wheel-drive version manages 42.8mpg.

The 1.1 is the winner when it comes to insurance premiums, though, because you'll pay the cheapest group 1 premium. The 1.2 and 1.3 diesel aren't far behind in group 2, unless you go for the Eleganza trim, which sits in group 3.
