The Fiat Panda Cross has been built upon the sound performance and legacy of the extremely capable Fiat 4x4, creating the absolute pinnacle of Fiat's off-road driving capabilities. With rugged looks, outstanding off-road capabilities and the ability for city car practicality the Fiat Panda Cross is a small car that's big on character.
Just from looking at the Fiat Panda Cross you can tell that it is ready for adventure. From the bright colourful paintwork to the powerful external detailing including dark metal 15" alloy wheels, specific roof bars, specific protective side strips featuring the Cross logo, chrome-plated tailpipe and front and rear bumpers with skid plates.
The internal design also enhances this exciting personality from the natural grey fabric of the seats which perfectly contrast with the daring metallic-copper-coloured dashboard which includes instrument surround and a central console in satin titanium. A leather steering wheel mounted with radio control and a leather gear knob adds stylish finishing touches.
Although the Panda Cross may look like a small City car the interior boasts an incredible abundance of space suitable to tackle any challenge, from 225 litres of luggage compartment, optimised load thanks to the Cargo Box and 60/40 split folding rear seats.
The Panda Cross is powered by a choice of two powerful engines, both of which greatly complement the cars off-road capabilities. Choose between the 90 HP 0.9 Twin Turbo which comes with a specific 6-speed gearbox with a shortened first gear designed specifically to ensure excellent uphill starts, and the 80 HP diesel 1.3 MultiJet II both of which have been fitted with Start&Stop technology.
The Panda Cross is a car that may be small in size but is certainly big on performance, and is always ready for the next big adventure.
The Panda Cross has been fully equipped with the most innovative top of the range technology and equipment helping it to achieve supreme levels of performance and driveability. An All Terrain Selector allows drivers to choose between 3 4x4 driving styles: Auto, Off-Road and Hill Descent Control, all of which are designed to achieve the optimum driving experience no matter the environment. With a generous ground clearance of 16cm and incredible grip of the all season tyres there is not a lot that can hinder the Panda Cross.
A CD/MP3 player is also included with 6 speakers and a Blue&Me system, turning the interior cabin into an entertainment centre for every drive. Bluetooth technology allows drivers to not only play music but make phones calls and listen to incoming SMS's all without taking their hands off the steering wheel thanks to the steering wheel mounted controls.
Rear parking sensors have been built in to aid drivers with problems getting into tight spaces, while an innovative City Brake Control automatically applies the brakes when it recognises objects or vehicles that are going to collide with the car. The Panda Cross is also equipped with safety features ABS, ESC, ASR,ELD as well as up to 6 airbags, AntiWhiplash headrests and wider tyres for greater grip giving drivers peace of mind and allowing them to concentrate on enjoying the driving experience.
