Fiat launches the Panda City Cross

In essence, the Panda City Cross is a front-wheel drive version of the all-wheel drive Panda Cross. It's a car that makes a lot of sense for urban use.

Black plastic cladding provides protection from small scrapes, while a set of 15” alloy wheels adds some style. Inside, the specification includes fabric and eco-leather upholstery which is complemented by a grey dashboard fascia.

Optionally available is a Style Pack. This comprises different upholstery, a copper-effect dashboard, body-coloured door mirror caps, red front tow hooks and an 'ultrashine' finish for the roof bars, skid plates and door mouldings.

Power comes from a 1.2 litre petrol engine that sends 68 bhp (51 kW / 69 PS) via a five-speed transmission.

A 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of 14.5 seconds and a 96 mph (154 km/h) top speed indicate fairly mediocre performance. Similarly, 51.4 mpg (5.5 l/100km) and CO2 emissions of 129 g/km on the combined cycle mean efficiency should be adequate rather than outstanding.

Pricing for the Panda City Cross starts at £12,995. The aforementioned Style Pack costs an extra £500, so most prudent customers are unlikely to be tempted.
