2021 Fiat Panda Cross The Reviews
Features, photos and price of the new Fiat Panda in our news. The Italians with the Panda and the 500 are still the market leaders in Europe and they want to stay that way when it comes to the little town dresses. Fiat also sees another strategic mission: “affordable family cars,” brand owner Olivier Francois told the British magazine.
The Fiat brand will move between these two poles in 2020: 500 families on the one hand, and inexpensive family cars on the other. Francois said there would be no more sporty or luxury models in Fiat. If Mazda’s current contract expires, this means Fiat will not release a new 124 Spider. The Japanese produce the model with the Roadster MX-5.

2021 Fiat Panda Cross Successor
The smallest inexpensive family car is still the Panda. Fiat has been producing the current model since 2011. A further study is underway, the Centroventi study, which Fiat showed at the Geneva Motor Show in the spring of 2019, “looks a lot like the next Panda,” Francois told the magazine. The new panda will be launched in 2021. A purely electric version of the panda could follow in 2023.
Now real Fiat model changes are rare. The 500 best-selling car has been in operation since 2007, and the Punto Fiat has been built for 14 years. Perhaps that’s why the Italians are already preparing for their customers to replace the 2021 Fiat Panda Cross: the exhibition Centroventi study from Geneva is now on the official website of the Fiat configurator. Those interested can choose body and wheel colors individually and Fiat also advertises a modular interior.
There is no request button. The thing is a promotional ploy, but with a serious background. Modularity will become even more important in its smallest segment in the future: even before the Fiat Panda, the Fiat 500 will be renewed in 2020. It is scheduled to be launched as an electric car. Like US electric car manufacturer Tesla, Fiat is considering leasing 500 to 500-capacity batteries. This should make it easier for buyers to transition to the new technology.
2021 Fiat Panda Cross E-mobility as an opportunity
Olivier Francois said the extra cost of an electric motor in an expensive car is easy to hide. This is more difficult for Fiat as a small-car supplier. Another great opportunity, as Fiat produces a third of all small cars sold in Europe at well-priced with the 500.
Recently, however, the cheaper Panda has been a little more successful: the Fiat sold 105,500 Panda and 100,150 Fiat 500 in the first half of 2019. The small segment provides Fiat the opportunity to achieve “hundreds of thousands of electric vehicle sales.”
“All future Fiat models should move between 3.50 meters and 4.50 meters.” So the next 2021 Fiat Panda Cross could be a little more compact than the 3.68-meter Centroventi study. Still completely open to whether Fiat plans to use different gas and all-wheel drive variants of the Panda again.
