Löki the Panda Cross TwinAir


Meet Löki, the First Panda Cross TwinAir in Scotland.

We chose to buy our Fiat from a Dealer in Dundee. Not just because he is a family friend but due to the fact that he & his family have loved their many Fiats over the years, and to us, he is Simon, Mr Fiat
So many thanks to him and AC Fiat Dundee.

So we had a wee scoot about a country park in Dundee, where we came across a Giant. It was as though it had been waiting there for many years just for this moment, The Blessing of Löki, the Red Fiat Panda Cross,
Löki is the Norse Giant/God of Trickery & Mischief. Apparently very pleasing to the eye, intelligent and a shape shifter.
A fitting name for any Cross; a fine & unique looking car that is full of modern technology and has the ability to change from a cute wee city panda to a Giant beating 4x4, a Giant itself!
This Löki has been blessed to defeat; Frost, Flood, Snow, Mud, Steep Hills, Rusty Dusters, Nissan Pukes, Cold Büms & Hopefully Time!

Löki's reply; Aye that'll be shining bright! Take a hike on your bike!


Lőki now lives in a city built on 7 hills, plenty of cobbled streets but even more pot holes, and, if it was Eden, parking spaces just for him & his Panda relatives.

Re: Löki the Panda Cross TwinAir

Red does look good.. By the way, is anybody buying 'ordinary' 4x4s anymore?

Re: Löki the Panda Cross TwinAir

We have effectively been waiting for this new TwinAir Panda Cross since before last Christmas & we are so glad we waited. In this time, We were very close to going for a TwinAir Panda Trekking and at another point a Panda 4x4 but something made us wait for the Cross launch details before we made any decision.
Over the past year of waiting there has been ups and downs. Waiting for Fiat to release the official pictures just days before the Geneva motor show was so exciting. Seeing the Cross launch price was a set back. Keeping a keen eye on the available discounts via the Fiat Privilege Purchase Scheme has been interesting, especially thrilling when we opened the brand new quarter's .pdf and saw the discount has increased again, to Ł3250, the Quarter the Cross became orderable. Then having the gutz to actually go ahead and order our very first brand new car. The biggest negative for us during this waiting period was the day my deposit car, an Alfa 159 1.9, chewed its gearbox good & proper. A couple of grand gone in a matter of seconds.
The waiting for our Panda Cross after ordering was the easy part, the time flew in due to the Cross, Panda & Fiat chat on here. The whole experience has been an educational and I have already been able to share this and help others to a great deal.

With regards to avoiding gritters; I forgot to include them in Loki's blessing, so the only solution now is to always keep our Cross in front of the plows and nasty paint chipping gritters. Easy for any unstoppable 4x4 Panda.
Bring on the Snow this Festive/Holiday period.

Merry Christmas to all Fiats out there,
Young & Old,
Bright & Bold,
Loved & even the Unsold

And to their owners; Have a good one!
