A 1.3 MULTIJET II turbo- diesel version of the popular four-wheel-drive city car FIAT Panda has just scooped the ‘Vehicles Under £16,500’ category in the demanding Caravan Club Towcar of the Year 2015 Awards.
The results of the competition were recently announced at a ceremony, held at the Royal Automobile Club in London.
The panel of expert judges — comprising experienced towcar journalists and Caravan Club members — evaluated all this year’s entries with a series of tough tests including acceleration, braking, reversing, ergonomics, hill start and traction.
“It’s well over 30 years since we launched the FIAT Panda 4x4 and I’m delighted that, three decades later, we are still winning top awards with it,” said Kate McLaren, head of brand, FIAT UK.
“The Panda 4x4 has won the under-£16,500 category, but it does not look out of place up against much more expensive cars.”
