Fiat Panda 4x4 hatchback
The Fiat Panda 4x4 formula of a low list price and good off-road ability is reminiscent of the Dacia Duster, but the similarities end there. The Panda is a lot smaller than the Duster, but feels like a higher-quality product and its appeal goes beyond the fact that its cheap to buy. Its cheekily styled inside and out, and while interior space is limited by its compact dimensions, the Fiats cabin is still impressively practical. Its engines are very economical on paper, but weve found it difficult to match the TwinAir petrols claimed MPG figure in the real world, so the diesel is probably a better bet. Surprisingly given its cute looks, the Panda 4x4 is very impressive off-road.
