Urban-focused front-wheel drive version of the 4x4 Panda Cross is priced from £12,995

The Fiat Panda City Cross, an urban-focused two-wheel drive version of the 4x4 Panda Cross, has been launched.

Priced from £12,995, it comes with a 68bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine, which can achieve 51.4mpg and outputs 129g/km of CO2.

The car gets the same crossover-like styling as the Panda Cross, with black plastic cladding that extends from the headlights, over the wheel arches and to the rear bumper. It also gets the same 15in alloy wheels.

Fiat has introduced two new body colours with the Panda City Cross: a pastel Minimal Grey and Electronica Blue, which is exclusive to the model.

An optional City Cross Style pack adds roof bars, side mouldings, underbody protection, a copper dashboard and painted door mirrors.

The Panda City Cross is available to order now. At £3260 cheaper than the regular Panda Cross, it should undercut the upcoming Ford Fiesta Active, although the Dacia Sandero Stepway is available from just £8995.

Fiat Panda

A very fine multi-use little car that offers an enticing ownership proposition

Sounds dangerously slow on the open road, and all for £13,000

The cheapest Vitara although a segment above doesn't come in much more expensive and that has a 120hp 1.6

Indeed. A Duster will give you a similar look and more space roughly the same amount

An urban focused crossover??? I almost split my sides laughing, what I suggest it really is,that Fiat have overestimated the sales potential of the Panda Cross and as a result they've got lots of the body & interior parts of the Cross left over so the solution is to recycle them by fitting them on to a new top of the range Panda, you'd have think they'd have learned their lesson with the Panda Trekking which no longer features in Fiat's UK line up. I mean for £13k I'd expect the Twin-Air engine rather than the old 1.2 four cylinder unit and they've not even got the special colours that are available on the 4x4 & Panda Cross.Don't get me wrong I'm a great admirer of both of the AWD Panda's they're very capable off-road vehicles just that the list price of them is just too high.knock two grand off the price of them would be a better policy

Urban on-roader or car.

    The handsome Jaguar XF Sportbrake exhibits all the hallmarks that makes the saloon great, and with the silky smooth diesel V6 makes it a compelling choice

    Volkswagen's new compact crossover has the looks, the engineering and the build quality to be a resounding success, but not with this diesel engine

    The all-paw M550i is a fast, effortless mile-muncher, but there's a reason why it won't be sold in the UK

    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided

    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
