This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Fiat Panda review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

The Panda only scored three-stars in Euro NCAP crash tests, which is disappointing for a modern car. Nonetheless, all models have twin airbags and ABS, plus more expensive versions get side airbags and stability control too.

With such a small body it's little surprise that luggage space is tight - the Panda 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, but most models only come with a folding rear seat - there's no 50:50 split unless you go for the Eleganza trim.

In the city, the Panda is a trusty companion and perfectly suited to scurrying through the rat race. A 'City' button on the dashboard makes the steering even lighter for tight slow speed manoeuvres and parking.
