The third generation of the Fiat Panda has been around since 2012. The most successful city car for Fiat is due for a mid-life update this year. The Panda Cross has been spotted testing for the first time in northern Sweden undergoing cold weather testing.

Under all the snow and camouflage, the test mule is carrying minor and subtle changes. Only visible tweaks are to the headlights, fog lights and daytime running lights. The taillights remain unchanged, but there might be a reworked bumper under the camouflage. The characteristic drilled front bumper seems missing the tow hooks but that could just be under the camouflage. It would be interesting to see what changes the facelift would bring to the Panda’s distinctive C- and D-Pillar. The powertrain for the facelift would remain the same. The 0.9-litre Twin Air and 1.2-litre petrol engine along with 1.3-litre diesel unit will continue to power the facelifted Panda Cross with the all-wheel drive system. We could even expect a new potent variant added later to the Panda range with a handful of extra equipment and tech on the inside as well.

There are no details of when the updated Panda range would arrive but the car will be officially unveiled later this year. We expect the car to be showcased in September at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.
