The Top Gear car review:Fiat Panda


On the inside

Layout, finish and space

Fiat Panda side

The Panda has always been about practicality over style, in contrast to its 500 sibling. It’s five doors only, the interior swallows five, it’s easy to access as it stands higher than the city car norm and, inside, it’s exceedingly practical throughout. The dash is designed to stow as much clutter as you care to carry, while the design is stylishly utilitarian. It all looks and feels much more upmarket than the old Panda, and this time round it’s actually made from solid plastics, rather than packing materials.        

There are six interior colour combinations to go with the 10 exterior hues, as Fiat tries to bring in a bit of Mini-like personalisation. Even more tough, rugged, city-ready distinctiveness is added by the 4x4 and 4x4-look Trekking, although they’re hardly cheap.
