Engine: 1.3 MultiJet 75bhp | Fuel: Diesel | Transmission: 5 Speed Manual | Loan Period: 11 Days | Price: £13,450
Last month prior to heading out to #LeMans I had a Diesel @FIAT_UK Panda Trekking 1.3 MultiJet 75bhp, with a 5 Speed manual on loan for 11 days. I was able to use the car to get to events I was featuring at including the Oulton Park round of the BTCC.
I like small cars with character I also like cars that show their personality on the interior as well as the exterior - as that’s where you spend a majority of your time. The Panda has this in abundance, you want to touch all the different querky materials that make up the inside. It’s a very sensory car to be in, and visually fun with the word Panda embossed into the door trim, and sqircles everywhere - circles are so over-used.
After 3 years using the #SpART I am quite used to squeezing as much car-art stuff into a small car as humanly possible. The Panda took on this challenge very well, with a surprisingly large boot and powered with an economical diesel engine it’s capable of long journeys and the ability to be great city car too.
The Fiat Panda Trekking is a ultimately a fun package one and it certainly put a smile on my face. Here’s a selection of photos of it over the 11 days... watcha think to it?
