Fiat Panda 3rd Generation

The 3rd generation of Fiat Panda will be first seen at the Frankfurt International Motor Show.
The previous generation made happy more than 6.5 million drivers. The third generation improved its technology, structure, safety equipment, and mostly everything. The interior space of this car is more than enough, this car being able to transport up to 5 people.
The side view of the car has been changed by adding a third window and new bumper stripes. The front view has also changed, Daytime Running Lights being added.
The interior features a rear seat that can split and slide, and the passenger seat can form a table.
The exterior aspect can fool you, but the compact car is very roomy, and even if it looks like an urban car only, it can be driven long distances.
It has a 85 HP 0.9 TwinAir Turbo engine, and a 65 HP 0.9 Aspirated TwinAir one. Also, it can have a 75 HP 1.3 Multijet II with Start&Stop engine with faster injectors.
It also features a Gear Shift Indicator that helps the driver reduce the fuel consumption and the CO2 emissions.
For safety, the new Panda has 4 airbags, front seat belts with pretensioners and load limiter, Isofix attachments for child seats, anti-whiplash front headrests, rear headrests and headlamps with Daytime Running Lights.
