FIAT Panda reviewNGC verdict 15.10.2014
If you need some serious off-road ability but donâ€™t want to go to the expense and environment bashing of a big 4x4 then Fiatâ€™s amazing new Panda Cross delivers the goods in an SUV-hatchback crossover. While itâ€™s a bit pricey and takes care and awareness not to overwork the engine and harm your fuel consumption, the new SUV Crossover is very well equipped and fun to drive.
The new top of the range model has more off-road ability than the Panda 4x4 on which it is based and can go where heavier vehicles would just sink into soft terrain and come to a stop. At the same time it has the practicality and everyday ease of a compact town car.
