Fiat has just released this tantalizing small SUV in Europe. Based on its top-selling Panda, it offers a combination of serious 4x4 potential with a maneuverable city-car.

The new Panda Cross should turn heads wherever it goes. And when it comes to sure-footed driving - on and off-road - the mini-SUV excels in all departments.

Combining the exceptional drivability of Fiat's 1.3 16v MultiJet turbo-diesel engine with the permanent four-wheel drive system of the Panda 4x4, the rugged new Panda Cross comes with a host of significant style features.

New round lights front and rear, chunky side protection in contrasting colors, roof-bars, 15" wheels and new bumpers all come as standard; while inside, the functional style continues with two-tone interior trim.

The new Panda Cross permanent four-wheel drive system has a viscous coupling and an electronic differential lock to ensure extraordinary off-road performance in low-grip situations.Fiat's frugal MultiJet turbodiesel engine gives smooth power delivery with low fuel consumption and emissions. It produces 70hp and 107 lb-ft of torque at just 1500rpm, which is ideal for off-road use.

The car's equipment list includes ESP, air conditioning, radio and MP3-compatible CD player with steering wheel audio controls, and electric power steering.

As with any Panda, fuel consumption and emissions are exceptionally low. Panda Cross returns 42.1mpg on the urban cycle, 67.3mpg extra-urban, and 54.3 combined. The CO2 figure is 136g/km.

With a low selling price, chunky good looks and practical 4WD, the Panda Cross offers an amazing versatility that won't damage the bank balance.
