Fiat Panda gets cleaner, greener and faster engines

The Fiat Panda city car gets a range of new engines designed to reduce emissions, improve fuel consumption and boost performance.

Fiat has launched a new petrol and a new diesel engine for the Panda.

The entry-level 1.1-litre petrol is replaced by a new 1.2-litre petrol unit producing 69bhp, capable of taking the Panda from 0-62mph in 13.4 seconds. It returns 57.6mpg and produces emissions of 113g/km, which means Road Tax is free in the first year and £30 a year thereafter.

The new 1.3-litre MultiJet diesel provides a 0-62mph time of 13.1 seconds returning 67.3mpg and emissions of 109g/km which means Road Tax is free in the first year and £20 after that.

Elena Bernardelli, Fiat's UK Marketing Director said, “The addition of the new engine to the line-up makes the Panda an even more tempting choice for drivers looking to save on fuel costs and keep emissions as low as possible.”

These more efficient engines are available in Active, MyLife, Dynamic and MutliJet Dynamic models. MyLife variants include alloy wheels, remote central locking and a 12V power socket. Opting for Dynamic trim adds roof bars, air-conditioning, pearlescent paint, a split-folding rear seat, MP3 connection and foglights.

The Fiat Panda MyLife is currently available from £7,245.
