The Italian brand has unveiled an updated version of its subcompact Panda model. The novelty of the 2021 model year boasts a sports version, as well as an expanded list of available options.

Fiat has unveiled an updated version of its iconic Panda, which turns 40 this year. Along with the usual City Life, City Cross and Cross trim levels, the 2021 city car version will be offered in the Panda Sport version (pictured). The car, which has been “designed for an active customer”, features two-tone 16-inch wheels with a black and red theme.

In addition, the Fiat Panda Sport boasts an exclusive Matt Gray exterior paint and an optional black roof.

The mirrors and door handles come in the same shade as the rest of the body as standard, but can also be finished in high-gloss black. Rounding out the changes on the outside is the chrome Sport logo on the front fender.

Inside, the Panda Sport has a titanium-colored dashboard and door cards covered in eco-leather. The headlining is in black and complements the dark gray seat upholstery. Like other versions of the 2021 Panda, there is a seven-inch touchscreen of the updated infotainment system with support for digital radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Fiat says the Panda is “the most affordable hybrid on the market” with a 70-horsepower 1.0-liter FireFly Hybrid engine. The electrified three-cylinder unit is mated to a new six-speed manual transmission and will be available for the company’s entire lineup in the future. In the Cross version, the engine will be combined with a 4×4 all-wheel drive system.

The current generation Fiat Panda has been the best-selling car in the Italian domestic market for eight consecutive years.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the Fiat 126 was demonstrated in the form of a modern electric car. Italian design studio MA-DE Studio published images of the electric reincarnation of the classic model Fiat 126. The new project was named Fiat 126 Vision.
