2020 Fiat Panda: pricing, engines, and trim levels

Fiat has revised the trim structure for the Panda line-up, which now comprises three distinct versions called Life, Sport and Cross.

Every front-wheel drive version of the Panda in Life, City Life, Sport and City Cross trims are powered by the firm’s 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, which features mild-hybrid assistance, producing a total power output of 69bhp. 

The entry-level Panda Life is priced from £11,895, and features 14-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, a DAB radio, and a stereo with USB and MP3 playback capability. 

Upgrading to the £12,595 Panda City Life spec adds 15-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, a revised front bumper design and new side skirts. Interior upgrades include a leather-trimmed steering wheel, Fiat’s Uconnect infotainment system, Bluetooth connectivity, and a two-tone grey trimmed upholstery. 

The Panda Sport starts from £13,295, and gets a sporty looking exterior design with 16-inch alloy wheels, red painted brake calipers, rear privacy glass and an exclusive matte grey paint finish, with the option of a contrasting black roof and door mirror caps. 

Inside, Sport models get a titanium dashboard panel, eco-leather door panels, a black headliner, sporty-looking seats trimmed in dark grey, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and contrasting red stitching throughout. 

The revised Panda Cross range starts from £13,995. Standard equipment includes 15-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, black door mirror caps and a roof rack. The interior is trimmed in black and blue eco-leather upholstery. 

Two 4x4 versions of the Panda are offered, and both are powered by Fiat’s turbocharged 0.9-litre two-cylinder TwinAir petrol engine, which produces 83bhp. The Wild 4x4 starts from £16,295 and shares the same exterior and interior features as the City Life model. It also gets a locking differential for off-roading, along with rugged-looking front and rear skid plates. 

At the top of the Panda line-up, the Panda Cross 4x4 costs £17,995, and gets a terrain selection system with three selectable modes: Auto, Off-Road and Hill Descent Control. Rear parking sensors are also standard, along with electrically adjustable and heated mirrors. The exterior features black plastic body cladding and red tow hooks. Inside, the dashboard is made from recycled materials, as is the black and grey upholstery.
