Ireland’s Most Affordable 4X4 Goes On Sale but be quick

We at the Next Gear are big fans of the little Panda, it’s the kind of car that Fiat do very well. Small and nippy with a lot of style. James May from Top Gear had one so what not to like there! Now Fiat Ireland have brought in a 4×4 version and by all accounts its very good.

Despite intense demand in the UK and across Europe, FIAT Group Automobiles Ireland has managed to secure a limited number of the FIAT Panda 4X4 for Irish customers this winter.

The newly re-introduced Fiat Panda 4X4 is Ireland’s most affordable all-wheel drive vehicle, priced at just €14,295, and it’s already selling out. Powered by a 69hp 1.2-litre engine, the FIAT Panda 4X4 combines incredible versatility with impressive fuel economy figure (6.0L/100km on the combined cycle) and low, Band B annual road tax.

Despite costing less than the average supermini, the FIAT Panda 4X4 Climbing is equipped with on-demand (and lockable) all-wheel drive; a revised suspension with increased ground clearance; special 14-inch alloy wheels with mud-and-snow tyres and beefed-up styling to reflect its all-weather versatility.

The FIAT Panda 4X4 is no less well prepared for the summer with air conditioning fitted to all models, while other standard features include front fog-lights, roof rails, remote central locking and electric front windows.
