Rugged new Fiat Panda

Fiat has released details about its new Panda Cross.

In profile, the car features protective wheel arch extensions, thick side mouldings with “ultrashine” inserts, matching roof bars and ‘Cross’ badging in the rear door inserts.

The 15in alloy wheels feature a five-spoke V design and a burnished metal finish, while the rear end also benefits from a new bumper with “ultrashine” under-body protection, distinctive new light clusters and a chrome tail pipe.

Even the engines are upgraded for the new Fiat Panda Cross: the 0.9-litre TwinAir Turbo engine sees its maximum power increased to 90bhp at 5,500rpm (up from 85hp) and maximum torque is 107lb/ft between 1,900rpm and 3,000rpm.

In ECO mode, engine output is 77.5bhp at 5,500rpm and 74lb/ft at 2,000rpm.

In terms of performance, 0-62mph is dispatched in 12 seconds and top speed is 104mph, while on the combined fuel economy cycle it returns 57.6mpg with CO emissions of 114g/km.

This engine is also equipped with a unique six-speed gearbox which has a shortened first gear to enable the vehicle to crawl while the engine is idling, a useful feature when tackling challenging off-road conditions.

The 2014 Fiat Panda Cross goes on sale in the UK later this year priced from £15,945 for the TwinAir version and £16,945 for the diesel.
