Special edition Fiat Panda Antarctica revealed, featuring exclusive styling and added kit

Fiat is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Panda city car by releasing the special edition Panda 4x4 Antarctica. The model also marks 500,000 sales of the iconic car and comes with a unique look and exclusive styling features.

The 4x4 Antarctica is denoted by its white paintjob and black roof, along with 15-inch diamond-finish alloy wheels, special badges and orange detailing. Meanwhile inside, there is unique grey and orange upholstery and added kit now fitted as standard, including privacy glass, 60:40 split rear seats and a height adjustable drivers seat.

As with all Panda 4x4 models, air conditioning, stability control, an electronic locking differential, tweaked suspension, mud-and-snow tyres and rugged bodywork protection all come fitted as standard.

Under the bonnet customers have the choice of either the 85bhp 0.9-litre TwinAir petrol engine or the 75bhp 1.3-litre MulitJet turbo diesel motor – both are equally as frugal, returning 67mpg and 72mpg respectively.

Only 300 special edition Antarctica 4x4 Pandas will be produced, priced from £14,895 or available on Fiat’s PCP with a £229 deposit and £229 monthly payments. First deliveries are expected in March.
