Panda 4x4 is the best
Added: 7th of August 2016
Fiat panda 4x4 The panda 4x4 ideas has been around for a while now having started on the original panda back many decades ago. The idea was simple a small cheap car that could go anywhere and it worked. In most vineyards in Italy there will be a old panda 4x4 one knocking around.As it happens the alpine police liked them to because of the light weight good ground clearance and much more. So the panda 4x4 was the car of choice. So then how good is it now? The panda is now in its third generation and has had some drastic changes made to it. Gone is the cheap simple design instead a rather odd cubed themed car every thing from the wing mirrors to the dials is in the shape of a cube. You may be thinking ahh excellent gone are the scratch plastics the useless heater buttons. In place of this is a pleasant interior. However a basic normal panda costs £500 more than a up! Exclamation mark indeed. Nearly £2000 more then the previous model ouch. The 4x4 models start at almost £15,000 that's as more that a top spec Dacia duster. So then the big question the one you have been waiting for is it available in horrible brown? No it is not. However it it available in an excellent green is that good enough to for you? Another small question people who are buying this car may ask is it any good? Well in short yes. Yes the panda may cost a lot for how big it is but I think it is worth that amount of money especially with the 0.9 twinair engine which at 6,500 rpm sounds like a herd of angry wasps or a really annoying motorcycle engine depending nag on your hearing. The panda 4x4 rides well over bumps and attempts to remaining composed through bends however the body role and the soft suspension don't make it a drivers car. However the panda more that makes up for this s by being very characterful all the floors suddenly turn in to positives. So in short this is a cheap to run characterful car and it is the only very small off-road car. So if you want a very narrow small 4x4 you have one choice. The Fiat Panda 4x4.
