The tiny and lightweight Fiat Panda could never be classed as a thirsty car, but the mild-hybrid powertrain has boosted its efficiency figures to some pretty impressive levels. 

The standard Panda can achieve up to 58.9mpg on the WLTP combined cycle, while opting for the Panda Cross will drop this figure ever so slightly to 57.6mpg.

However, the 1.0-litre mild-hybrid engine isn't the strongest in everyday driving; it only develops 69bhp, and you must exploit every bit of its power when pressing on. In doing so, you may struggle to match these claimed economy figures.

Insurance groups

Both the Fiat Panda and Panda Cross mild-hybrids are in insurance group 8, so buyers should have no trouble getting cheap cover. This, along with the low purchase price, makes the Panda an ideal car for young and inexperienced drivers.

Depreciation

Fiat has never been one of the strongest performers for used values. That said, considering the low initial purchase price, the Panda’s depreciation isn’t too dreadful. Our experts predict the Fiat will retain 48 to 50 per cent of its initial value after three years and 36,000 miles, with the Cross sitting at the upper end of this range.
