​The Fiat Panda is a cute-looking choice in the dwindling city car market, and it has a bit more flair than lower-spec versions of the Hyundai i10 and Kia Picanto. The Panda’s design will be the deciding factor for many owners; with its upright stance, bold details, and an eye-catching blend of straight lines and curves, it still manages to stand out.

The interior of the Fiat Panda continues this sense of fun, and there are plenty of trademark 'squircle' design cues – think square shapes with rounded corners. Chunky Tonka toy-style switchgear and bright fabrics contribute to the personality of the car.

While the interior is a vast improvement over past models, some of the materials feel low-rent, and it can't match its newer rivals in terms of quality.

Sat-nav, stereo and infotainment

Entry-level Pandas get a relatively basic radio system with a five-inch screen, along with Bluetooth, USB and aux connectivity. Moving up to the Panda Cross brings in a much more modern seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Both systems feature DAB tuning.
