Comments

The 1.2 petrol-engined Panda shows reasonable control of its pollutant emissions. Particulate number is not excessive, even in the more challenging tests and the car picks up a lot of points for its very low values of CO and NOx emissions, particularly in the on-road tests.

Comments

For a car that weighs so little - barely a tonne - energy efficiency is not outstanding. An average of 6.3 l/100 km is far from class-leading with the small engine being made to work hard in some of the laboratory tests.

Comments

Emissions of greenhouse gases, especially those of N2O and CH4 which are unregulated by legislation, are impressively low, while that of CO2 is not excessive in any of the laboratory tests.

Our verdict

The Panda, first introduced in 1980 and since 2011 in its third generation, remains part of a FIAT model line-up that has remained largely unchanged for several years. The car is tested here with the four cylinder 1.2 litre petrol engine, now Euro 6d-Temp compliant. With only a three-way catalyst by way of exhaust after-treatment, control of pollutant emissions is limited and, in the more challenging tests - cold ambient temperature, high-load highway - CO is high enough for all points to be lost. However, even without a gasoline particulate filter, particulate number is never excessive, in the laboratory or on the road. Energy efficiency is not impressive for such a small car. Overall, the Panda 1.2 petrol delivers respectable performance all-round and achieves a fair 2½ star rating.
