Fiat Panda gets a refresh for 2021

Fiat Panda contract hire

The Fiat Panda is a well-loved city car available for leasing and Fiat has refreshed the range for 2021.

It has been on sale for 40 years, and now the Fiat Panda has been refreshed for 2021.

Fiat is also taking the opportunity to overhaul the car’s trim levels and range, plus there’s the introduction of the new Panda Sport to enjoy.

The Panda will still be available as a car lease for those wanting a 4×4 with real off-roading abilities.

This model features the firm’s 0.9-litre TwinAir petrol producing 85bhp.

The rest of the Panda range has a 1.0-litre mild-hybrid petrol engine, which was unveiled earlier this year, that produces 70bhp and should meet most urban driving needs.

Fiat Panda as a contract hire choice

The Fiat Panda as a contract hire choice offers value for money with the entry-level version coming with air-conditioning, 14-inch steel wheels, a DAB radio and body-coloured bumpers.

The next model in the Panda range features a new front bumper, 15-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights and there’s a brand-new insert in the Panda’s side skirts.

There are also various black exterior elements included to complete the look including the door mirror housings and the roof rack.

The Panda lease also comes with an anthracite-coloured dashboard with two-tone grey seats, along with a smartphone holder in the dash.

The Panda Wild 4×4 has the same features but has rear and front skid plates, plus the rear differential gear locking system for the all-wheel drive performance.

Fiat Panda Sport appears for the first time

The Fiat Panda Sport appears for the first time and comes with 16-inch alloy wheels with red brake callipers, body-coloured door mirrors and handles and darkened rear windows.

There’s also a dedicated paint for the Sport, and the option of having glossy black door mirrors and a roof top.

The Sport’s door panels have eco-leather, there are new seats and a 17-inch alloy wheels and a titanium-coloured dashboard.

For those interested in the Fiat Panda range, the mild-hybrid petrol engine uses a 1.0-litre unit with three-cylinders and a ‘belt integrated starter generator’ electric motor.

Fiat Panda car lease models

Essentially, this means that the Fiat Panda car lease models harvest the energy used during deceleration and braking to charge the battery for later use.

The Panda also features a new six-speed gearbox with the model expected in showrooms any day now.

The Fiat Panda has remained in production because it offers city drivers a robust and cheap to run car – and the 4×4 version is one of the best small off-roaders currently available.
