Two money-saving, planet-friendly versions of Fiats top-selling Panda city car are to go on sale in the UK.
Hot on the heels of the family-friendly Panda Mamy and the rugged four-wheel drive Panda Cross, the new Panda Active Eco and Dynamic Eco will go on sale at the end of September.
"It has been a busy summer for Panda with the launch of Mamy and Cross, and we are delighted to announce these new Eco cars too," said a proud Elena Bernardelli, marketing director, Fiat UK.
"This is another example of how seriously we take the environmental issue, while offering drivers real value-for-money motoring."
Top speed for the Active Eco is 93 mph, with a 0-62 mph acceleration time of 15 seconds, while the Dynamic Eco reaches a maximum 96 mph and has a 0-62 mph acceleration time of 14 seconds.
These two newcomers cost just £100 more than the standard versions on which they are based.
That means the Panda Active Eco costs £7,105 on the road and the Panda Dynamic Eco £7,705. But thanks to a reduction of the VED tax band from C to B, there is an immediate saving of £85 to owners.
