The new generation Fiat Panda made its world debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show and, just like the previous generation, a 4x4 version is scheduled to follow. The first spy shots have captured the car testing in winter conditions and considering it will be similar to the standard version, expect to see it launched by the end of the year.
The upcoming Panda 4x4 is the perfect alternative for those who want to combine the affordability of a city car with the pleasure of driving a 4x4 model. Compared to the standard Panda, the 4x4 version will sit higher off the ground and will be offered with a different suspension and bigger wheels. For the exterior, the model will get plastic elements at all the corners, but that is where the differences will end for the standard and 4X4 Pandas models.
Just like with the standard version, the future Panda 4x4 will be offered with two TwinAir twin cylinder engines: the 2011 International Engine of the Year 85bhp TwinAir Turbo, or the brand new 65bhp naturally aspirated TwinAir. Both engines are equipped with Start and Stop as standard and a 4x4 system.
