The Panda 100HP is the 'performance' model in the range, although with a 1.4-litre engine producing a modest 100bhp (as the name suggests) it's not particularly quick.

Parkers Rating:

4 out of 5

The Panda 100HP is the 'performance' model in the range, although with a 1.4-litre engine producing a modest 100bhp (as the name suggests) it's not particularly quick. However this Panda is all about driver enjoyment and fun, so although it may not rocket along in a straight line, it is immensely enjoyable to take down a country lane, while it can happily hold its own on the motorway.

It looks the part too with a bespoke body kit, alloy wheels and rear spoiler on the tailgate. It's also great value, new or used, while fuel and insurance costs are low, making it a great choice for younger drivers who want something reasonably sporty.

What owners say...

 5 doors, small enough to park almost anywhere and comfortable on longer journeys.

 Not much! It has 5 doors, a small boot and a small glove box!. Really Fiat have made the best of the space available as 4 adults can fit (just!!), but if you need practicality look elsewhere.

 Small, so easy to park and use in city, yet it is roomy inside.
