Back in the summer of this year, the Panda got a mild hybrid based on a1.0-liter three-cylinder naturally aspirated engine and a 12-volt motor with a capacity of 3.6 kW (4.9 hp). The latter helps the engine during acceleration. It is also responsible for the operation of the start-stop system and accumulates energy during braking.

The new infotainment system takes the place of the central deflectors, which was compensated by a new D-Fence air purification system. In turn, the company got rid of a smartphone holder and used a free space for an air duct aimed at the windshield.
