      Fiat panda 4x4 in india soon!



      Fiat calls it the the only A segment four-wheel drive model.The Panda 4x4 is equipped with a torque-on-demand transmission system with two differentials and an electronically controlled coupling. This is a permanent four-wheel drive system managed by an electronic control unit which, by analysing vehicle signals, distributes traction on the front and rear axle homogenously and proportionally according to road grip conditions.

      The Panda 4x4 features an ESC (Electronic Stability Control) system with an ELD (Electronic Locking Differential) function as standard. This system provides additional assistance while driving and setting-off uphill on slippery terrain (snow, ice, mud etc.). More specifically, the ELD acts by braking the wheels with poor grip (or those slipping more than the others).


      Two engine versions of the Fiat Panda 4x4 will become available, both with Start&Stop: the new 85 HP 0.9 TwinAir Turbo and the 75 HP 1.3 MultiJet II diesel.


      Other features in Panda 4×4 include
      175/65 15 inch tyres
      Torque on Demand
      Electronic Stability Control
      Start & Stop System
      6- speed Manual transmission

      The new Fiat Panda 4x4 has been voted the ‘Best SUV’ by Top Gear Magazine.

      There are two engines offered, both with Start/Stop the new 85 HP 0.9 TwinAir Turbo which was awarded the 2011 International Engine of the Year or the ultra efficient 75 HP 1.3 MultiJet 2 diesel.

      There is a huge standard equipment list that includes air conditioning, smoked finish 15” alloy wheels, driver, passenger and window airbags, Blue& Me Multimedia system and protective side mouldings. The car also features an ESC (Electronic Stability Control) system with an ELD (Electronic Locking Differential) function as standard. ( Clearly they are referring to "TOP" model in Indian Context )

      I do not mind having this model in India with less features but at the correct price. If Fiat still has no plan to bring it to India then I just have one word for Fiat, "SORRY"

      IMHO it may be too small for the Indian market. Rear space to price ratio will be poor in a Panda and that's what matters in Indian market!!

      A Fiat 500XL may be a better option

      I did read about the Panda climbing up a volcanic mountain where bigger SUVs gave up. But not sure it is coming to India.
      Drive it like you stole it and Detail it like you own it.
