I'm giddy with excitement at this evidently massive investment by Fiat in refreshing the Panda.

What a load of tosh.
The handbrake is fine as is, great for arthritic hands. The change to the instruments isn't worth the change in tooling.
Money wasted in my opinion.

I think the parking brake lever change is a cost cutting thing.
They probably have truckloads in storage of them, now Fiat Punto production has come to a end.
Most likely the awesome ergonomic parking brake Panda solution will be more expensive to make then the old fashion lever solution.
Now they have probably to make less plastic parts and use a lever they have in storage.
I like the new instrument design better, now the needles are not covering the numbers anymore.

A shorter pointer would have done the trick and saved a penny per thousand pointers.

Squircle handbrake so much easier to use when putting car in gear 3.5 years into owning Pandas. Only when go back to conventional car do you realise how much of a pain they are.

I think it should be possible to retrofit the original Panda park brake solution in the new cars.

That should be mouse-shaped lever.

The facelifted instruments you have shown, are already present in Panda since 2017 facelift.

I'm struggling at the moment as I'm starting to think about getting a new car but fiat aren't showing me anything awe inspiring.....

The Same here, and i get impatient.
There will be a point of no return that i'm changing to something else (non fiat) if Fiat do not show something new and interesting very soon.

Btw, i hope the next FIAT Panda will be completely different again compare to the present version.
I even hope for something smaller and more Urban useable.
With the new 120 hp 999cc 3 cylinder GSE-Firefly Turbo engine in it.

That message on the dash seems to say it all about clearer graphics... You get used to these but they do look better in your photos.

That would be "mouse-shaped lever" not the other way round.

"mouse-shaped lever" is what we already have, the old fashion lever is what we will get.
