similar

there way better and better than the 1.2 panda also

loads more grunt from low down like 1000 rpm and sound better they have 70hp now after all i think last of the pandas were 60

mk2s are 60 again

grande engines were 65 as they had stronger ignition and different compresion

but basically for the new 1.2 fiat fitted the 1.4 8v head onto the 1.2 unit with higher compression stronger ignition and the timing variator

as said you really need to go try one to believe it they put a huge smile on my face first one i tried

were as every mk2 i drive after driving my mk1 is just so much less gutsy it's unbelievable
