Re: Facelift Fiat Panda 319.

Uconnect integration will be the biggest change in the interior i reckon.

Slimming down the gear linkage stack would also give the driver a little more knee room.
Some round cup-holders would also be a help!

Edit - oops - just seen that others have got there before me. That will teach me to post before reading to the end of a thread!

Re: Facelift Fiat Panda 319.

If we repeat it enough, maybe Marchionne will happen upon this thread while googling and make it so...

Round cupholders, knee room, armrest, reach adjustment.

Re: Facelift Fiat Panda 319.

Most will not happen in this generation Panda, maybe in the next gen.

Re: Facelift Fiat Panda 319.

Some new colours would be nice.
Heated steering wheel as part of the winter pack or even as a standalone option would be great. I would definitely order that!

Re: Facelift Fiat Panda 319.

With the current status of FCA, I'm a bit worried about the longevity of both Fiat and Chrysler, along with long-in-tooth platforms.

Re: Facelift Fiat Panda 319.

Looking back through history, I am struggling to find a FIAT whose 'first generation' wasn't the best looker:


127
126
Strada
Panda Mk1
Uno
Cinquecento
Punto
Panda Mk3 (169)


If we use the 127 as our benchmark, the last generation was way the ugliest, thus making the Mk2 look pretty. Thus, if they totally screw up the 319 facelift, it'll make the current 319 look a proper cutie.


...Eye of the beholder and all...

Re: Facelift Fiat Panda 319.

You could add the Barchetta to that list.

Re: Facelift Fiat Panda 319.

I really hope the facelift/Restyle of the Panda would also mean the introduction of the 105 hp TwinAir engine, with 6-speed gearbox and disc-brakes all around.

Re: Facelift Fiat Panda 319.

I also hope that Fiat will not f#ck-up the dash to much, a simple change would be possible.
Fiat should use the the radio slot for the new central vent location and put a screen like the Fiat 124 Spider in the space of the old vents.
It would mean only a new lower vent in the old radio slot and a new screen mount to place the screen in the the old vent.
