Fiat Panda Cross crowned Best Crossover by 4x4 Magazine

Here at Arbury Fiat in Walsall, we were thrilled to see the Fiat Panda Cross scoop the ‘Best Crossover’ award at the 4x4 Magazine 4x4 of the Year 2019 awards for the second year running.

4x4 Magazine is the UK’s only dedicated 4x4 and pick-up publication, and their annual 4x4 awards have been defining the segment for more than 25 years. Expert judges praised the Panda Cross for its ‘rorty' engine, traction-finding ability and entertaining drive, awarding it top honours in a sector that is becoming increasingly competitive.

Alan Kidd, Editor of 4x4 Magazine, enthused: “I don't think there's any vehicle that's won its class so consistently down the years as the Panda Cross. The market has been ever-changing, but it's been wonderfully consistent in what it offers – while also getting better all the time. It's not built to be the ultimate all-terrain vehicle, but its lightweight and tidy proportions mean it's incredibly manoeuvrable and sure-footed on rough ground. You have to go a long way to find its limits.”

This achievement is one in a long list of accomplishments for the Fiat Panda: the first city car to feature 4WD technology, the first city car to climb to an altitude of 5,200m and reach the Everest base camp, and the first natural gas-fuelled city car to be produced on a large scale. Andrea Lo Presti, Fiat UK Marketing Director, commented on the award, saying: “The Fiat Panda Cross is an immensely capable car and this is something that its loyal owners have always known and appreciated. With a panel of 4x4 experts agreeing that point too, it makes this win for the Panda even more significant.”

To celebrate the award, Fiat is launching the new Fiat Panda Waze 4X4, which combines the looks and functionality of the popular Waze model with the award-winning 4X4 running gear. Contact your nearest Arbury Fiat in Walsall for more information, and to experience the Panda Cross for yourself!

Financial Disclosure

Cathedral Motor Company Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Cathedral Motor Company Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
