Fiat Panda 1.2 Eleganza

AdvantagesVery small & manouverable, specious, superb visability, cheap to run

DisadvantagesSmall boot

"...massive VW's and the baby Fiat are it! And do you know which of these three cars was most fun to drive? Yes the Fiat Panda, 2004 Car of the Year - costing less than one sixth of the price The Volkswagens are big and impart a tremendous feeling of safety certainly. My everyday car, the Honda accord diesel in which we had travelled up from the south coast too has a genuinely reassuring feel of integrity about the way it drives, it too feels ..." Read review

A small car for a small budget

Advantagessmall, stylish, handles well, spacious interior

DisadvantagesPoorly equiped cabin, small boot

"...came down to either a Fiat Panda, or Kia Picanto. The Panda is most definately one of the smaller cars on the market, which suited me to the ground. The interior was well presented in terms of materials, although it has to be said the cassette deck as standard was a bit of a disappointment (CD players are an optional extra). However, the best bit about the inside of the Panda has to be the gearstick, cunningly mounted on the center console. Although ..." Read review

A City car for all occasions

Advantages"CITY" driving mode; Price; Fuel Efficiency; Handling; Space; Driving Position

DisadvantagesNo in-car controls for opening boot, Petrol Tank capacity

"...Ford Ka, Skoda Fabia, and Fiat Punto amongst others. Having narrowed it down to the Panda and Fabia, largely based on the various awards these cars have gained in recent times, I had to make my choice. The Fabia was going slightly above budget, and at about 7500 it didn't come with too many extra features. So I sent my dad to the Fiat dealership. He managed to negotiate a great deal getting the Panda Dynamic 1.2 version with alloy wheels, a cd ..." Read review

Pleasantly surprising Fiat Panda

AdvantagesCheap, reliable, easy to drive

Disadvantagesimage

"...from university in her new Fiat Panda. Looking in my opinion a like a car cut in half, i was immediately thinking that as we shared a car at the time I was going to look a little silly driving this vehicle. Now, 3 years later, and having driven the panda on regular occasions, i still feel the same, it does look a little odd, is unusually high with a strangely placed gearstick, but it is undoubtably a nice car to drive. Now I am 22, try to keep ..." Read review

Good Cheap Second Car

AdvantagesPrice, 4 door , economy , Good driving position

DisadvantagesOnly 1 door lock , leaks water into car when opening door

"...enjoy about driving the little fiat hatchback and I am no fan normally of small cars . The model we bought was a standard Panda Dynamic 1.2 but still comes with central locking, twin airbags , ABS , EBS , trip computer , body coloured bumpers and a host of other standard extras including my wife's favorite the City steering option . Just press the city switch and a gerbil would be able to sterr the little beauty if it could reach. If the trip ..." Read review

Fiat Panda Dynamic auto

AdvantagesFunky looks, great quality, well equipped

DisadvantagesHesitant auto gearbox, light coloured trim

"...never have normally considered a Fiat before due to their appalling reputation for reliability, rusting, poor dealer service and interior quality, but when my wifes Skoda Fabia needed replacing, we checked the Panda out and I was amazed! The interior quality is nearly as high as in the Skoda (which was terrific), the steering is light and fairly responsive (especially when using the 'City' funtion which lightens it for parking, etc.), the kit is generous ..."

Car of the Year, or is it ?

AdvantagesAffordable, comfortable and Car of the Year 2004

DisadvantagesRoad noise, poor drive, possible reliability problems, depreciation

"Voted car of the year, should mean that this motor is the best availble, but is it? Good value, and pretty comfortable means a lot, and when you first sit in the new panda, you are pleasently supprised. Memories of the old cramped Panda, are imediatly banished, and a sense of importance and pride becomes you. Once you start the engine, and move off though, the illusion is sadly shattered. Awkward cluthc and gear changes make for a difficult ..." Read review
