Fiat has recently revealed plans for the continuation of its current-generation Panda, introducing a special series model known as the Pandina, paying homage to the endearing nickname affectionately given to this city car by Italians.

Drawing inspiration from the Cross version, the updated Pandina boasts distinctive off-road elements, additional emblems, and striking yellow accents, perfectly complementing its unique moniker.

Notable features include charming panda face graphics adorning the wheel caps, reminiscent of the limited edition Panda 4×40 reintroduced last year.

In addition to the existing color palette comprising Gelato White, Cinema Black, Passione Red, and Italia Blue, Fiat introduces the vibrant Positano Yellow hue along with contrasting roof options, adding further flair to the Pandina’s exterior.

Promoted as the safest and most technologically advanced Panda to date, Fiat equips the Pandina with integrated advanced driver-assist systems. These include an advanced emergency braking system, lane-keeping assist, drowsy driver detection, and a traffic sign detection system.

Enhancing safety further, Fiat incorporates rear parking sensors, cruise control operational from 18.6 mph, automatic high beam functionality, and a comprehensive six-airbag system.

Inside, the Pandina welcomes drivers with a new 7.0-inch fully digital cluster featuring three distinct graphics options and an updated steering wheel design.

Entertainment and connectivity are elevated with the introduction of a brand-new 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Under the hood, the Pandina retains its reliable powertrain, housing the 69-horsepower 1.0-liter mild hybrid engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, delivering power to the front wheels.

In response to the enduring popularity of the Panda across Italy and Europe, Fiat commits to the production of the nameplate at the Pomigliano d’Arco plant until “at least 2027.” This decision coincides with the unveiling of five Fiat concepts slated for the same year, with production set to increase by 20% to meet growing customer demand.

Looking ahead, Fiat’s timeline indicates that the traditional internal combustion engine-powered Panda will coexist with the next-generation, all-electric model, scheduled for debut in July 2024.

While the Panda remains absent from the US market, prospects appear promising for the introduction of the electric Panda to American consumers, following the success of the 500e.

European consumers can anticipate the arrival of the Fiat Pandina in dealerships starting in the summer season.
