Novitec upgrades the Fiat Panda

Article by Christian A., on November 1, 2012

An upgrade program was created by Italian tuner Novitec for the latest Fiat Panda. Owners can get a front spoiler attached to the production fascia for 184 euros, while the rear spoiler is available for 150 euros. Novitec has also created custom 7.5Jx17 N10 alloys offered in matt-black or silver polished finish with 215/35 R17 tires.

Each of the wheels costs 159 euros but the entire set with tires is priced at 1,106 euros. Novitec also offers a coilover suspension that lowers the ride height between 30 and 80 millimeters. The tuner also provides sport springs that lower the vehicle by 35 mm.

For 419 euros, the Panda can receive a Novitec PowerJet 2 auxiliary control unit for the 2-cylinder TwinAir gasoline engine that increases the output to 99 hp (73 kW), permitting the car to accelerate from zero to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 10.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 117 mph (188 km/h).

The power of the 1.3 16V MultiJet turbodiesel engine could also be increased with a Powerrail 5 module that raises the output to 91 hp (67 kW), from 75 hp (55 kW). This enables the car to go from zero to 62 mph in 11.9 seconds (12.8s standard) and top speed of 110 mph (178 km/h).

This kit costs 335 euros. For just 251 euros more, Novitec can give the Panda a sport rear muffler that has a one-round 90mm tailpipe on the two sides.

Fiat Panda epitomizes functionality, practicality and substance. The new design process adopted in the new Panda seeks to make beauty not only visible but also perceptible. Being a third-generation model, Panda’s functionality features have been improved and new details have also been added. The general outcome of this new concept is exceptional coherence and harmony, which stem from the integration of components that are consistent with each other and from the application of useful design elements.

To add a greater and more attractive value, the design creates a sentimental relationship between the man and the machine, thus guaranteeing an incredibly rewarding drive in the Panda. This explains why the initial concept of modifying the Fiat Panda was not sustained. As an alternative, the Fiat designers took the place of every customer and understood the ultimate desire for a car that combines a daring personality with decent utility. Thus, the product is a car model that is filled with striking personality and great value; a car that integrates the reputable status of the brand with impressive quality and advanced technology in every detail.

Stunning

The all-new Fiat Panda instantly gets your attention with its modern appeal and natural freshness in addition to its evident Italian styling. This effect is created by the anthropomorphic design of its front. It extends its invitation for a cheerful and light-hearted drive with its sophisticated parallel grille that is joined by a faintly curved bonnet and newly-designed round headlamps at the front, thus creating an illusion of a smiling face. These aesthetic traits are common to the newest Fiat models that invoke a sense of family and togetherness. It is also related to the new Fiat 500 that is known for its success in the city car segment.

The developers gave this car a different dash of personality to make it bolder and more reassuring. It was also designed to be more spacious than what is desired from cars of the same size. To enhance safety especially for children, the compartment for passengers is also built with the comfort and quality of one, unified space.
