Higher top speed, stronger acceleration, improved fuel consumption and lower CO2 figures are all important features of these lean, green power units, which come fitted to the diesel 1.3 MultiJet Dynamic. The new vehicles will further reinforce Fiat’s industry-leading environmental standing – in February the company recorded Europe’s lowest volume weighted CO2 emissions for the fourth consecutive year.
The 1.3-litre MultiJet diesel version delivers 0-62mph acceleration in 13.1 seconds and a maximum speed of 103mph. With a combined cycle fuel consumption figure of 67.3mpg, it gives a 109g/km CO2 figure.
“The Fiat Panda is one of the motor industry’s great success stories,” says Elena Bernardelli, marketing director, Fiat Group Automobiles UK and Ireland. “And we plan to continue that with this new range of cars. The addition of the Euro 5 engine to the line-up makes the Panda an even more tempting choice for drivers looking to save on fuel costs and keep CO2 figures as low as possible.”
The Panda is generously equipped, with power steering, electric front windows, body coloured bumpers and driver and passenger airbags as standard, as well as alloy wheels, remote central locking and 12V power socket, body coloured door mirrors and handles, roof bars, air conditioning, pearlescent paint, split folding rear seat, MP3 player and fog lights.
The price for the new Euro 5 Fiat Panda Dynamic 1.3 16v MultiJet is £12,285.
