Fiat New Panda
Located in Basingstoke
The Fiat Panda Hybrid is the ultimate compact SUV. The hybrid powertrain combines a 1.0L petrol engine with a small battery and belt-driven integrated starter motor for smooth, instantaneous starts in traffic and battery-assisted coasting. The result is fuel economy of up to 49.6mpg combined and a much more refined drive.
Of course, the Panda Hybrid is a Panda, which means it also boasts fantastic handling and comfort. It’s the perfect car for pootling around and Launch Edition models come equipped with all the kit you need, including a smartphone cradle, Uconnect, air conditioning, heated door mirrors and SEAQUAL upholstery which is 100% recycled.
If you like your cars quirky and compact, the Panda Hybrid will suit you perfectly. It’s an authentic SUV in miniature, with roof bars, rugged body panels and an enhanced ride height for a ready-to-roll stance. Simply put, it looks magnificent.
The Panda Hybrid drives like a normal Panda, but the mild hybrid system makes a massive difference to smoothness and efficiency around town - it starts the engine smoothly and has a Coasting Mode that shuts down the engine below 18mph in neutral.
Thanks to its five-door design and spacious back seat row, the Panda Hybrid is perfectly usable as a family car. The boot has a handy 225-litre load volume and there are ISOFIX child seat mounting points on both rear outermost seats.
Living with it
It’s easy to keep track of your battery and fuel consumption using your smartphone which you mount onto the dash with the in-built cradle. There’s Bluetooth to keep you connected, DAB radio and automatic air conditioning to keep you comfy.
