Re: New Panda!

Thank you! It's nice to see one in the real world and not in a studio. Looks nice

I like the interior a lot!

Re: New Panda!

Very nice indeed - the Mediterranean Blue shade is well worth the extra cost.

The interior is also really good. We really wanted to have the blue ambiance with the turquoise paint but were only able to choose this combo with the Lounge.

Had the Lounge come with Blue&Me then we might have gone for it, but the extra options it comes with (like alloys, colour coded door handles etc) weren't enough to convince us to fork out the extra. Also it probably would have cost quite a bit as we have specced all of the flex options available.

Re: New Panda!

Looks really nice. Might have to look at replacing my MJ next year, just not sure whether to go for another diesel or the Twin Air as I've covered 70,000 miles in 7 years I'm not sure whether another MJ is justified on a mileage basis. When I bought mine new in March '05 there were three engine choices, the 1.1, 1.2 and MJ so the derv version was not only the most powerful but also had the most torque and therefore the most performance.

Now there's the Twin Air, so...........................

Re: New Panda!

I must be getting old. I don't like the new Panda shape at all. The front looks like zillions of other modern cars and the dashboard looks like it's something out of Mad Max.

And isn't it about time Fiat got a decent designer for the seats? Whatever year Panda you have, the seats look like they were designed by a Telly Tubby.

Exactly - couldn't agree more. (Nothing to do with age, in a negative sense.)

Re: New Panda!

Actually the blue interior looked (to me) so much brighter and more cheerful than the beige (sorry, sand) option.

Smile Re: New Panda!

As much as I like the blue, I do think that the lighter colours really show off the black trims - really smart on the white!
