Fiat expands Panda range with new City Cross model
Blending the looks of a 4x4 with the simpler, two-wheel drive transmission, this new version of the Panda could make a cut-price alternative to the likes of the Nissan Juke and Vauxhall Mokka X
Effectively, that means that the City Cross is a two-wheel drive version of the existing Panda Cross 4x4; and, indeed the two cars share the same design of alloy wheel, as well as looking pretty similar.
Buyers of the new City Cross have a choice of two colours – Minimal Grey and Electronica Blue – and the car also comes with body-colour front and rear bumper inserts and side mouldings, while the door mirror caps, roof bars and door handles are painted in contrasting black.
Inside, the Panda City Cross features a grey fascia with matt black inserts, while the new seats are trimmed in black and grey fabric, with black eco-leather side inserts.
The only engine available in the City Cross is a 1.2-litre petrol unit, which averages just over 50mpg and has CO2 emissions of 129g/km. That makes it slightly less efficient than other Pandas with the same engine; but, on the other hand, the City Cross is cheaper than existing Cross 4x4 models, with prices starting from £12,995.
