Prices and full engine specifications of the new Fiat Panda 4×4 and its two-wheel drive sibling, the Trekking, have been unveiled.

The entry-level model features the 84bhp turbocharged 0.9-litre two-cylinder TwinAir petrol engine. Costing from £13,950 for the 4×4 and £12,450 for the front-wheel drive Trekking and the 74bhp 1.3-litre MultiJet diesel has an RRP of £14,950 in 4×4 guise, while the Trekking version costs from £13,450.

In terms of performance, economy and emissions, the diesel Panda 4×4 is capable of 99mph, 60.1mpg and 125g/km of CO2, while the Trekking version can top 100mph, return 67.3mpg and 109g/km. With the petrol engine fitted, the 4×4 version can hit 103mph, 57.6mpg and emit 114g/km of CO2. The two-wheel drive model, however, can hit 106mph as well as manage 61.4mpg and just 105g/km of CO2.

Styling-wise, the two cars are similar, with the only major visual differences being that the Trekking has a black plastic skid plate, whilst the 4×4’s is aluminium coloured. Both cars have a raised rid-height, 15-inch dark alloys, side skirts and roof rails, as well as body coloured “4×4-style” bumpers. Fiat is hoping that the Trekking will appeal to those customers who want SUV styling but don’t have the need for four-wheel drive
