Fiat Panda 100hp

Fiat has really done everything right with this junior hot hatch, from its puffy arches, tiny roof spoiler and chunky front grille to its six-speed transmission, there aren’t enough cars in the world like the Panda 100hp. Yes, you won’t win many traffic light Grands Prix, hitting 100km/h in 9.5 seconds from a standing start, but the Panda’s small 980kg mass resulted in a nimble package, allowing it to take corners with ease to dive. The 1.4-litre engine is also quite frugal and has an official average of 44 mpg. In combination with an advantageous group 11 insurance, you will quickly save money while retaining the fun factor. We saw a 57,000-mile clean for £3,790.
