2013 Fiat Panda Review

Meet the Panda. It's a simple, functional, no nonsense kind of car. That's why I bought one. We'll start with the basics. I opted for the tried and tested 1.2 litre FIRE engine.

The 8-valve unit makes a modest 52 kilowatts of power with 102 newton metres of torque...

Something that I’d actually enjoy driving on a day-to-day basis.
