The new Panda Trekking is the range-topping special trim of Fiat’s design classic, taking this famous compact 4-door off-road in unrivalled style and luxury. Although not a 4X4, the Panda Trekking’s unique wheel traction system is designed to give superb hold in bad weather and on a variety of tough terrains. Sharp suspension and a body raised by 47mm, make this eye-catching Panda exciting and fun to drive anywhere.
For an off-roader, the 2018 Panda Trekking is surprisingly cheap to run, an excellent deals making it appealing for city life as well as country living. Like many Pandas, the Trekking comes with an array of style options and refinements, which can be selected according to taste, lifestyle and budget.
Complete with ESP anti-skidding, 4X4 styling and off-road alloy wheels with ‘mud and snow’ tyres, the Panda Trekking looks and feels the part. Inside the upmarket cabin is a rich array of refinement and technology which includes air conditioning, a multi-function steering wheel and sophisticated infotainment system with USB, Bluetooth, mp3 and AUX connectivity.
The 2018 Panda Trekking is for sale with a choice of two highly advanced and proven Fiat engines, each boasting excellent low-cost credentials. Listing at just over £13k, the 1.3L 75PS Multijet turbo diesel is a superbly engineered unit which mixes more than enough power with incredible economy, returning an average of 67.3mpg. For £1K less, the clever 0.9L petrol is very sprightly for its modest size and as a petrol off-roader, still returns over 60mpg. Both engines also offer low CO2 emissions, reducing road tax premiums.
