This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Fiat Panda 4x4 review.

Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

The Panda only scored three-stars in Euro NCAP crash tests, which is disappointing for a modern small car. Nonetheless, the 4x4 has four airbags and an advanced ABS system specifically for four-wheel drive cars. Two extra curtain airbags are available as an option but front seatbelts with pretensioners and load limiters, three-point rear seatbelts, anti-submarining seats, and an FPS Fire Prevention System are all standard.

Airbags

With such a small body it's little surprise that luggage space is tight - the Panda 4x4 has a boot capacity of slightly more than 200 litres, which although small is still more than a MINI. The boot area can be expanded by dropping the rear seats, boosting space to 861 litres. Of course the 4x4 system and increased ride height means the Panda can easily cope with muddy or rutted tracks.
