2012 Fiat Panda is efficiency taken to the max News Reviwe with Video and Pictures

2012 Fiat Panda

Fiat has given its completely redesigned Panda – only the third in the model's 31-year history – its international debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The Italian automaker describes the five-seat 2012 Panda as "compact but capable" and says the third-generation high-riding city car is more stylish and sips far less fuel than the outgoing Panda.

Measuring in with a total length of less than 144 inches, the redesigned Panda is ever-so slightly longer than the 2011 model. However, the added length means the 2012 Panda sports one of the most spacious boots in the city car segment.

It's likely all four of the available engine options will make their way into Pandas sold throughout Europe. These choices consist of 64- and 83-horsepower turbocharged versions of Fiat's two-cylinder 900-cc TwinAir gas engine, plus a more conventional (and cheaper) 68-hp 1.2-liter gas engine and a 74-hp 1.3-liter turbodiesel.

Efficiency is the name of the game here, with stop-start technology likely to feature heavily across the 2012 Panda lineup. Fiat says the revised 1.3-liter MultiJet II diesel – now with start-stop and intelligent alternator control – is the most efficient of the bunch with CO2 emissions listed at just 90 g/km. That roughly equates to 69 miles per gallon on Europe's combined test cycle.
