2013 Fiat Panda 4x4 live at 2012 Paris Motor Show reveal

Fiat has already dropped all of the info for its new Panda 4×4 mini utility, but the Paris Motor Show allows us to finally see this prospective future Jeep in the flesh. Claimed to be the only four-wheel-drive offering in Europe’s A-segment, the 2013 Fiat Panda 4×4 promises to be a proficient off-roader in a very small package.

From the sounds of it, this latest Panda 4×4 is no softroader, with permanent four-wheel drive that maximizes off-road capabilities through a torque-on-demand system that features a pair of differentials. The Panda 4×4’s electronic locking differential can apply the brakes to wheels losing grip and transfer that power to other wheels for optimal traction. Power comes from either an 80-horsepower, 0.9-liter TwinAir Turbo engine or a 1.3-liter diesel.

While giving off the rugged vibe with all its black plastic cladding, the Panda 4×4 still has a cute exterior design that displays its kinship to the Fiat 500. Speaking of the 500, the Panda 4×4 rides on the same 90.6-inch wheelbase as Fiat’s iconic hatchback – despite having four doors – and it’s also longer, taller and wider than the standard Panda.

We doubt the U.S. will ever see the Panda or the Panda 4×4, but it could very well be the basis for a new sub-Compass model in the Jeep lineup, so it will likely pay to keep a close eye on Fiat’s cuddly little dirtmonger. Scroll down for the official press release with more details.
