The world’s favourite car that is named after a bear is hitting its 40th year on sale. Yes, it is the Fiat Panda! Good news for all you lovers of the little Italian car, as it receives a refresh for 2021. Not only are we seeing new, fresh interior and trim across the range, we will also see the introduction of a Panda Sport… Yea, I know!

The new Panda will still be available as a 4x4 with the brilliant Fiat 0.9-litre twinair engine pushing out around 85 horses! The rest of the range comes with the 1.0-litre mild hybrid engine seen earlier this year topping at around 70bhp.

Fiat launched their new mild hybrid tech in February with the Panda Hybrid Launch Edition. The mild hybrid petrol engine pairs the new Euro 6D Final-compliant 70hp 3-cylinder 1.0-litre engine from the FireFly family with a Belt-integrated Starter Generator (BSG) electric motor. The latter recovers energy during braking and deceleration, stores it in a lithium battery with a capacity of 11Ah, and uses it at a peak output of 3.6kW, to restart the engine in Stop & Start mode and assists acceleration. The transmission takes on the new 6-speed gearbox, designed to further optimise the engine’s range of usage.

 The new Panda range will be available from as early as November and will be priced from £11,895 for the 1.0-litre petrol model.  

Panda Sport

Exciting times as the Panda Sport joins the line-up for 2021. You won’t need to worry about standing out from other standard Panda’s as this will come with 16-inch alloy wheels, red brake callipers and darkened rear windows. Not only that, but the Sport comes with its own exclusive matte grey paint job and an option for a glossy black roof for those of you who want a little extra individuality!

The interior is just as fresh, with titanium-coloured dash, eco-leather door panels and steering wheel. The Panda Sport also comes with new seats with very stylish grey and black upholstery with red stitching, complimenting the exterior design.

Interior - Sport 

The Panda Life range offers a more affordable car, but don’t be discouraged by the low price, this car still comes with plenty for the driver to appreciate! The entry level model comes with body-coloured bumpers, 14-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, DAB radio and MP3 compatibility and USB connectivity.

The new 2021 Life model (Top pic) also has a new front bumper and fog lights, with further options for side-skirts and 15-inch dark metal alloy wheels. It looks like black is the new black with various exterior elements receiving the treatment, including roof rack, side protection, door mirrors and handles help to finish off the look. The Panda Wild 4x4 tops the range, receiving the same styling but with the 4x4 system (obviously!), rear differential and front and rear skid plates.

Panda Cross

The new 2021 Cross comes out of the blocks the toughest looking of the new range! On the outside, LED DRL headlights, black door mirrors, 15-inch alloy wheels, side sills and body-coloured bumpers and skid plates complete the Cross look. The new look is also coupled with a brand-new ceramic blue pastel paint for the first time. The interior sees a new black-on-blue two-tone upholstery on door panels and seats, finished with stylish silver stitching. The Cross also comes with automatic climate control as standard.

To finish off the new line-up, we have the new Cross 4x4. Building off the Panda City Cross, this new model receives all terrain selector with 3 modes (Auto, Off-road, Hill Descent Control), rear differential gear locking and rear parking sensors. The standard specs are finished off nicely with red front tow hooks, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, front and rear bumper with silver skid plates, silver side mouldings and dark tinted rear windows. For all you tree lovers out there, the new dash has been made with processed waste wood, whilst the new black on grey seats feature fabric in the centre panel made from 37% recycled material. Fiat have been thinking sustainably!

The new range is perfect for any city and beyond with the 4x4 system. If you are looking for a well equipped, affordable and stylish little Italian car, the new 2021 Panda range could be for you!
