Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 43 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

The Panda 100HP is good value, especially considering the good level of equipment and sporty looks. It’s cheap to insure thanks a group 5 rating, plus is economical with an average fuel consumption of 44mpg. Servicing at Fiat dealers can be hit and miss – and unfortunately it’s usually worse than better.

The Panda 100HP is eco-friendly for a small sporty hatch – it emits 154g/km of CO2 and returns 44mpg.

We’ve not heard of any major problems with the Panda since it was introduced and the build quality appears to improve upon other Fiat models before it. As most of the components were designed for heavier duty models – and will generally be subjected to less strain with the Panda – they should be fairly durable.
