SPECIAL: New Panda 4×4 Antarctica
Fiat are celebrating 30years and 500,000 sales of the Panda 4×4 by launching the special edition Antarctica.
Priced from £14,895 and hitting dealerships from March, the vehicle is only available in white with a black roof, orange detailing, and boasts diamond-finish 15inch alloy wheels and special badges.
Inside, it features grey and orange upholstery, with standard features including dark-tinted rear privacy glass, a height adjustable driver’s seat and three-passenger rear seat with 60:40 split/folding backrests.
It also features air conditioning, ESC stability control, an electronic locking differential (ELD), specially-tuned suspension, mud-and-snow tyres and rugged bodywork protection.
The vehicle is powered by either an 85hp 0.9litre TwinAir petrol engine or a 75hp 1.3litre MultiJet II turbo diesel engine.
Just 300 examples of the FIAT Panda 4X4 Antarctica will be built for the UK market.
Elena Bernardelli, Marketing Director at Fiat Group Automobiles UK, said: “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.”
