, as demonstrated by the adoption as standard of both the 'Torque on demand' transmission system and the ESC (Electronic Stability Control) system complete with ELD (Electronic Locking Differential) function. This provides additional assistance while driving and setting off on slippery terrain.

The Panda Cross also offers a selector so the driver can choose the best use of the AWD based on the driving conditions. The 'Terrain Control' lets the driver select three different modes: Auto, Lock and Hill Descent.

The Auto mode features automatic distribution of drive between the two axles depending on the grip of the road surface. The Lock has the four-wheel drive always active with distribution of torque, wheel braking when losing grip, and transfer of drive to those with the most grip. Finally, the Hill Descent mode is used for optimum handling of particularly steep hill descents or when going down extremely bumpy routes.

Design

The Panda Cross has been designed to make it immediately recognisable and distinctive, with a stylistic language typical of an SUV. It features a brand-new front bumper, which boasts a generous skid plate in a satin titanium colour with a design of holes. Tow hooks with an immediately recognisable new design in a brilliant red place emphasis on its off-road character. The light clusters are also new, with the headlights and new fog lights integrated with the logo holder bonnet trim, and new daytime running lights with LED technology, built into the skid plate.

From the side, the new wheel arches, mouldings with 'Cross' badge and the new roof bars stand out. The 15in alloy wheels sport a 5-spoke V design and a burnished metal finish. The rear end is characterised by a new bumper with under-body protection with the same design and finish of the front skid plate. It also gets new light cluster and chrome tail pipe.

The passenger compartment offers specific fabric trim, leather-lined steering wheel and gear knob and distinctive trim for the dashboard. The standard equipment includes automatic climate control, radio CD/MP3 with Blue&Me system with steering wheel controls, special 15in alloy wheels, electric door mirrors, height-adjustable driver's seat and 'All Seasons' 185/65R15 tyres. City Brake Control will be availble as an optional.

Two engine versions will be available, both with Start&Stop standard and boasting higher performance than the versions on the Panda 4x4: the 80hp 1.3 MultiJet II turbodiesel and the 90hp 0.9 TwinAir Turbo petrol.

The new Panda Cross will be marketed starting from the autumn in the major European markets, and a three-layer orange livery of enormous impact will be offered for the occasion.
