If all you look for in a car is honest simplicity, you'd be hard pressed to find anything that fits the bill better than the original Fiat Panda. Now in its third generation, Fiat have sold a cumulative six million examples since its introduction in 1983. The original was so successful, it soldiered on in some markets until 2003 with only minor changes. There was even a surprisingly capable four-wheel drive version - which for some time was among the cheapest 4X4s available. The second generation was an immediate success after it was launched in 2003. It was lauded in the press as a worthy successor to the iconic original (though, in Italy especially, it was received as the spiritual successor of the first Fiat 500s), winning European Car Of The Year in 2004. The current model was launched in 2011, and is available with a choice of diesel and petrol engines.
