Fiat Group Automobiles UK has recently announced the pricing information for the rugged new Panda 4x4 and Panda Trekking. The Panda has been very successful, with 6.5 million cars produced in more than three decades. Notably, the 4x4 version was first presented in 1983. The newest range, the third generation, is priced from £13,950 OTR for the 0.9 TwinAir 85hp 4x4.
The price goes up to £14,950 OTR for the 1.3 16v MultiJet 4x4 diesel version. The two-wheel drive Trekking has a starting price of £12,450 OTR for the TwinAir version and £13,450 for the MultiJet. The new Panda 4x4 -- the off-road version of the new Panda – has a permanent four-wheel drive system.
The stunning car comes with body-coloured ‘4x4 style’ bumpers with satin aluminium finished skid-plate, roof rails, side mouldings with ‘4x4’ logo, black wheel arches and side skirts, 15-inch dark alloy wheels and raised ground clearance suspension. The interior of the Panda 4x4 features twin-coloured seats, coloured dashboard, door panels in coloured ‘eco-leather’, and a gloss black instrument surround.
The same treatment is given to the Trekking models but what’s different is it gets a black skid-plate rather than satin aluminium and lighter finish alloy wheels.
The full engine line-up includes the award-winning TwinAir 0.9-litre petrol (85hp), enabling the Panda 4x4 to achieve a top speed of 103mph (Trekking 106mph), official Combined Cycle fuel consumption of 57.6mpg (61.4mpg) and a CO2 emissions level of 114g/km (105g/km). On the other hand, the MultiJet (75hp) offers incredible figures of a top speed of 99mph (100mph), fuel economy of 60.1mpg (67.3mpg) and CO2 emissions of 125g/km (109g/km).
