Fiat Panda and Tipo Garmin special editions arrive
New look for Panda and Tipo thanks to Fiat and Garmin collaboration
GPS manufacturer Garmin and Fiat have worked together to create new special ‘Garmin’ edition versions of the Tipo hatchback and Panda supermini.
The Tipo and Panda Garmin both offer a new livery, made up of exclusive ‘Foresta Green’ paint and orange detailing. The models are based on the slightly more rugged Cross trim level and there’s a new matte paint finish for the front skid plates, wing mirrors and side mouldings.
The Panda Garmin gets 15-inch matte black alloys and the Tipo Garmin retains its black 17-inch wheels. Both cars get plenty of orange touches inside and out with the black fabric seats featuring orange stitching and Garmin branding.
As standard the Panda Garmin receives automatic air conditioning, a DAB radio and a 7’’ touchscreen with Bluetooth, Apple Carplay and Android Auto compatibility. The Tipo Garmin offers a larger 10-inch touchscreen.
There are further colours available on the Tipo with Gelato White, Colosseo Grey, Maestro Grey and Cinema Black all on the options list. Both Garmin editions also offer a smartwatch that will monitor your fitness levels through heart rate, stress levels and sleep quality data.
The powertrains for the Panda Garmin and Tipo Garmin remain unchanged with a 1.0-litre 70bhp hybrid petrol engine for the Panda and a 128bhp 1.5-litre T4 48-volt hybrid engine for the Tipo Garmin.
Expect prices for the Panda Garmin to be around the same as for the similarly equipped £15,765 Panda Cross (RED). The Tipo should start from around the same price as the £23,605 Tipo Cross (RED).
