Fiat Panda Cross and 4×4 get subtle updates

19 September 2016

Fiat have made some subtle changes¬† the the Panda, Panda Cross and Panda 4×4 for 2017.

The exterior remains the same except for two new colour options (the pastel Amore Red and metallic Colosseo Grey) and a pair of new alloy wheels.

The Italian company decided to concentrate on the interior updates, which include new graphics on the instrument panel, making them more modern and easier to read. All of the seat fabrics have also been refreshed with new graphics and colour options for all trim levels.¬† Basic Panda versions get a fabric upholstery with geometric elements while the 4×4 and Cross models feature shot fabric in the middle of the seats.

The Panda’s don’t offer integrated touchscreens but have an adjustable holder for your smartphone that can function as an infotainment system through the Uconnect app. This app is a gateway to all the usual services, and includes Bluetooth, audio streaming, USB data located in the glove compartment, voice recognition system, recharging port with USB port on the dashboard, AUX port, MP3, and the “Panda Uconnect” interface via Bluetooth.

The engine range also remains unchanged and includes a wide range of options: a 51kW 1.2-litre offered in petrol and petrol-LPG versions, the twin-cylinder 0.9-litre Twinair available in three power levels (51kW, 63kW and 67kW, a 59kW petrol-methane version and the 70kw 1.3-litre diesel.)
