Fiat marks 30th anniversary of 4X4 with Antarctica special edition

Article by Anita Panait, on January 23, 2014

Fiat is celebrating 30 years and 500,000 sales of its Fiat Panda 4X4 all-wheel-drive city car by launching a special edition. The Fiat Panda 4X4 Antarctica features a white body with a black roof, as well as orange detailing, diamond-finish 15-inch alloy wheels and special badges. The interior of the Fiat Panda 4X4 Antarctica features grey and orange upholstery with more standard features like dark-tinted rear privacy glass, a height adjustable driver’s seat and three-passenger rear seat with 60:40 split/folding backrests.

Just like the typical Fiat Panda 4X4 sold in the United Kingdom, the special edition also features air conditioning, ESC stability control, an electronic locking differential (ELD), specially tuned suspension and mud-and-snow tires as well as rugged bodywork protection.

The Fiat Panda 4X4 Antarctica is powered either by an 85hp 0.9 TwinAir petrol engine or a 75hp 1.3-liter MultiJet II turbo diesel engine, allowing this city car to offers both low running costs and off-road capability.

Only 300 examples of the FIAT Panda 4X4 Antarctica will be produced and marketed for the UK market. They will have a starting price of £14,895 OTR and will be available on a PCP from just £229 deposit and £229 monthly.

On the other hand, there has been a strong demand for the standard FIAT Panda 4X4 that Fiat has created a waiting list. Customers who place orders could have their FIAT Panda 4X4 delivered in March 2014, just in time for the new ‘14’ registration plate. The FIAT Panda 4X4 was recently tagged as ‘2014 Mini 4X4’ by the 4X4 Magazine. It was also named Top Gear magazine’s SUV of the Year in 2012.
