The new features a permanent four-wheel drive equipped with a torque-on-demand transmission system with two differentials and an electronically controlled coupling. The four-wheel drive system is managed by an electronic control unit which distributes traction on the front and rear axle proportionally according to road grip conditions.

An ESC (Electronic Stability Control) system coupled an ELD (Electronic Locking Differential) function comes as standard. Going by claims, the new Fiat Panda is designed to be a capable off roader.

The car comes with two engine versions of the 4×4, both with Start & Stop system – the new 85 HP 0.9 TwinAir Turbo and the 75 HP 1.3 MultiJet II diesel. A special six-speed gearbox works in tandem with a low-range first gear, ensuring better uphill starts and pick-up for the new Fiat Panda. The new car’s rear suspension is lighter than its predecessor and provides better ride and acoustic comfort.

The Fiat Panda 4×4 rides on the same 90.6-inch wheelbase as Fiat’s iconic hatchback, the 500.

    Hi just stumbled upon your blog via Yahoo after I typed in, “” or something similar (can’t quite remember exactly). In any case, I’m pleased I found it because your content is exactly what I’m looking for (writing a university paper) and I hope you don’t mind if I gather some material from here and I will of course credit you as the source. Many thanks.
