Fiat reveals new Panda for 2012




Fiat’s latest Panda will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September before it hits UK showrooms in spring next year.

The first vehicle in its category to win the car of the year award for 2004, the motor has grown this year by a few centimetres in order to increase space and comply with latest safety standards.

Now in its third generation of the Panda, the marque is attempting to increase its eco-friendly reputation by offering Start Stop technology as standard, as well as a gearshift indicator to help reduce fuel consumption.

Fiat claims that safety was one of the governing priorities in the design of its new vehicle, with the inclusion of ABS as standard along with anti-whiplash headrests, four airbags and useful Isofix attachments for childseats all attesting to the brand’s declaration.

“The Fiat Panda is one of the motor industry’s great success stories,” commented Elena Bernardelli, marketing director for Fiat in the UK and Ireland.

She added: “We plan to continue that with this new range of cars.”
