On the occasion of the commercial launch of the Fiat New Panda, the model's range presents an extremely interesting new development: the previous version will continue to be sold under the name Panda Classic. Available starting today in Italy, France, Hungary and Spain, and later to become available in the other European countries, the car is destined to take command of the low segment A since it offers customers accessibility to handy features and a moderate price.

Fiat Panda Classic

Launched in 2003 and sold in 76 countries around the world, the second series of the Fiat Panda has won over a growing leadership position in its market segment. In 2011 alone it captured 38% of the market, proving that it is the best-selling segment A car in Italy. And with its 15.7% share, it has also proven to be Europe's best-selling city car. Backed up by this roaring success, today the Fiat Panda Classic offer has been rationalised to give customers a significant benefit.

The model has been heavily rationalised on the 4x2 versions by keeping only one version called Classic. It is available with the 69 HP 1.2 petrol, 75 HP 1.3 MultiJet 16v diesel, 69 HP 1.2 EasyPower (LPG/petrol) and 77 HP 1.4 Natural Power (methane/petrol) engines. In detail, the Classic version offers as standard front airbags, ABS complete with EBD, height-adjustable steering wheel, Dualdrive electric power steering, electric windows, central locking, radio set-up, bumpers in body colour and protective strips.

The price list (turn-key) starts at Euro 9,050 for the 69 HP 1.2 Classic version. Thanks to the contribution made by Fiat and its sales network, during this initial stage of the launch it is possible to buy the 69 HP 1.2 Classic version at Euro 7,900 (turn-key) or at Euro 8,650 (including manual climate control) or at less than Euro 8.850 (including the Climate Pack that contains manual climate control, fog lights and roof rack bars).

Nothing changes for the 4x4 customer. The Panda Climbing continues to offer on demand four-wheel drive and can be fitted with the 69 HP 1.2 petrol and 75 HP 1.3 MultiJet 16v diesel engines. Standard equipment: front and side airbags, ABS complete with EBD, height-adjustable steering wheel and driver's seat, radio system with CD and MP3 player, Dualdrive electric power steering, under-engine blades and shields, electric windows, central locking and protective strips. The ESP system complete with electronic locking differential is available on request.

Even the exterior and interior colour selection has been rationalised with the aim of preserving the most popular shades of the model's recent past. Today the Panda Classic customer can choose from six body colours: three pastels (Bossa Nova White, Mambo Yellow and the non-standard Pasodoble Red) and three metallic shades (Electro grey, Electroclash Grey and Crossover Black). Lastly, the Vision fabric in the new shade of Anthracite/Grey is available for the Classic version, whereas the Panda Climbing offers two solutions: a Sand/Black Techno fabric and a black jeans fabric.
