I needed a new car so decided to test drive few cars. When a first entered the fait showroom (after hours of car dealerships) I ignored the Panda and told my husband that it looked like a box on wheels and wouldn't be seen dead in it. After about 20mins of looking around and playing with all the buttons and nobs on the other model I gave in to my husbands nagging of "It's been voted car of the year" and some person called Clarkson from top gear loves it and says it great to drive, I gave in and went for a test drive. I was glad I did. It handle great. it was fun, I even found myself takign back the commect I had made earlier about it's looks, they had grown on me. The CD/radio in the elaganza range has bigger buttons than the rest which means you can easlier change channels. The dash mounted gear stick it easy to use and I now find it uncomfortable when driving my husbands car . It's has lot sof features, climate control, heater mirrors etc. It is the best car I have had, it is now 2 years old and I am thinking of trading it in for another Fiat Panda later in the year.

I gave this review a SH rating because of the grammar ("I needed a new car") and I thought it could have been longer as well. I actually like this style of review where people explain the thought process behind the reason why they bought/ tried a certain car. You mention some other good points. If you edit it then please drop a line in my guestbook and I'd be happy to re-rate. Kieran PS The panda was car of the year in 2004 http://www.caroftheyear.org/pages/Coty04.htm
