Celebrating the 30th anniversary and nearly half a million sales of the iconic Fiat Panda city car, Fiat has launched a special edition model called Panda 4X4 Antarctica for the UK.
As far as the exterior is concerned, Fiat has given the Panda 4X4 Antarctica a slightly different look with the help of features like diamond-finish 15-inch alloy wheels, special badges, orange detailing and an exclusive white exterior color with a black roof.
Just like the exterior, the interior of the special edition has also been updated to stand out from the standard Panda. It comes with a grey and orange upholstery, a height adjustable driver’s seat, dark-tinted rear privacy glass, three-passenger rear seat with 60:40 split/folding backrests, ESC stability control, air conditioning, and an electronic locking differential (ELD). The special edition also features mud-and-snow tyres, side body cladding for better protection and a specially tuned suspension.
The Panda 4X4 Antarctica comes with two engine options, the same which power the standard Panda. Customers can either choose FIAT’s award-winning 85hp 0.9 TwinAir petrol engine or 75hp 1.3-litre MultiJet II turbo diesel engine.
Elena Bernardelli, Marketing Director FIAT Group Automobiles UK, commented: “Not only has the FIAT Panda 4X4 been a huge success all over Europe for the past 30 years, it’s in huge demand in the UK too. British buyers really appreciate its nimbleness and efficiency, combined with its immense all-weather capability, all wrapped up in a distinctive and unmistakably Italian package. The new Panda 4X4 Antarctica – with its extra equipment, unique styling features and strictly limited numbers – should prove even more appealing so potential buyers will need to be quick to snap one up this winter!”
To make the Panda 4X4 Antarctica exclusive enough, Fiat has decided to produce only 300 units. As far as the pricing goes, the Fiat Panda 4X4 Antarctica starts from £14,895 OTR and available on a PCP from just £229 deposit and £229 per month.
