Easy and fun to drive, great value, cheeky looks, well built interior
Boot space is tight, split/folding seats aren't standard, offset pedals
The original Fiat Panda was a low cost, compact, cheap to run, lightweight car. The new Panda stays true to that ethos but unlike the earlier version, is well built, comfortable and durable. Thanks to the upright body it's also surprisingly spacious inside and you can easily carry two adults, a couple of kids and luggage (if you pack carefully). It's also good fun to drive, with light but precise steering making it great in town while it is equally capable on motorways where it can happily cruise along with minimal fuss.
The interior is fairly basic but well laid out and the seats are comfortable too. But what really makes the Panda appealing is it's value for money and low running costs. This really is Fiat doing what it does best.
