Read the Honest John Review

  • Fiat Panda (2012 on)
    New Panda has a softer shape and less boxy look. 1.2-litre or TwinAir engines. More upmarket interior. Good headroom. Softer suspension than previous Panda.
  • Fiat Panda (2004 - 2012)
    Compact and practical. Enjoyable and easy to drive. Narrow size makes it easy to park. Good space for those in the back.
