New Car: 2010 Fiat Panda

In order to keep the Panda fresh and up-to-date, Fiat has decided to revised their ever-popular city-car. On the outside, all 2010 Panda adopt the more contemporary body coloured grille found on all variants, excluding the entry-level Active models. In addition to the revised bumpers, new alloy wheel designs, larger exterior mirrors and silver trim finish for the roof bars are now available. Fiat has also added four new exterior colours to the lineup.

Inside, the instrument panel gets fresh graphics while there's also a new selection of upholstery colours.

Mechanically,  improvements are limited to the 1.2 litre petrol engine that now has 69bhp, up from 60bhp and now emits 113g/km CO2, down from 133g/km (eco model emits 119g/km). This same engine is found in the Fiat 500 and Ford KA city-cars. The Panda 4x4 should also have lower CO2 emissions, compared to the 155g/km from the current model. In Europe, Panda buyers have a wide choice of petrol, diesel, natural gas and LPG engines with outputs ranging from 54bhp to 100bhp. Both manual and Dualogic semi-automatic transmissions will also be available. The UK will only get the 2 former engines.

The Panda was launched in September 2003. In the 6 years it has been in production, Fiat has sold more than 1.5 million units of the city-car.
