Fiat Panda 4x4 coming to Paris Motor Show 2012
At the upcoming Paris Motor Show on September 27, Fiat will be showcasing the new Panda 4x4. The 4x4 Panda will have 15-inch alloy wheels, skirting and black trim with skid plates of the contrasting type at both in the front and back., fog lamps and a raised muffler. It also gets new colour schemes like Silica orange and Toscana metallic green with options for three-colour seats in the interiors. There is also a MP3 player, eco-leather detailing and remote central locking.
For the Panda 4x4, Fiat has retained the 75PS multijet and 0.9-litre 85PS TwinAir Turbo engines, fitted with stop/start systems. Both the engines are mated to a special six-speed gearbox with low-range first gear. Power is sent to all four wheels via an electronically-controlled coupling which manages the differentials. In addition, when wheel slip is detected, the Electronic Locking Differential applies the brake to each wheel individually. A torsion beam at the rear and MacPhersons at the front complete the suspension setup.
In addition to the 4x4, Fiat will be launching the Panda line-up in two more variants â" Trekking and Natural Power. The two-wheel drive Trekking will combine the looks of the 4x4 version with Traction+ technology which improves the handling on slippery surface. A dual fuel (methane and petrol) TwinAir Turbo engine powers the Natural Power variant.
