13 May, 2022: New Panda and Tipo Garmin debut in the UK with two special series, combining an attractive cross look, cutting-edge technology and a high-performing, sustainable engine range.  The ideal solution for customers who need a car for exploring outdoors or to escape everyday routine.

The agreement between the FIAT brand and Garmin; the global company which has been developing devices with integrated satellite technology for over 30 years; sees the Panda and Tipo models join the already successful Cross and (Red) versions. 

Now the baton has been passed to the Garmin special series, a true “concentration” of versatility, technological innovation and gritty design—characteristics shared by both FIAT and Garmin. It meets and fulfills the desires of a sporty customer, looking for smart products to experience the outdoor life in the city without giving up style and distinctiveness. Both models feature the new Foresta Green livery, exclusive to the new Garmin special series, embellished with orange details, exclusive matte light grey exterior highlights and dedicated wheels that accentuate the cross look. The same style can be found in the interior with orange detailing. It’s versatility and modularity of space accommodates a number of different needs.

Panda Garmin Special Series
Capable of tackling daily tasks with ease and style, the Garmin special series will be available in Foresta Green livery with orange accents, such as the line above the side mouldings, “Panda” writing on the hubcap of the 15’’ matte black style wheels and the “Garmin” badge on the pillar. A new light grey textured matte paint has been created for the skid plates, mirror caps and side moldings. Fog lamps and black roof bars complete the exterior equipment. The same approach is found in the cabin, where the interior offers orange detailing, such as the stitching on the black fabric upholstery of the seats. Standard equipment includes automatic air conditioning, and Radio DAB 7’’ touchscreen with Bluetooth®, Apple Carplay and Android AutoTM compatibility with steering wheel audio controls.

The Panda Garmin special series can be equipped with the Hybrid 1.0 GSE 70 HP engine.

Tipo Garmin Special Series
Also available in exclusive Foresta Green, the Tipo Garmin special series offers orange elements – such as the line on the side, the ‘Garmin’ badge on the B-pillar and matte black details, including door handles, roof bars and pillars. The result is a strong and bold colour combination, which is enhanced by the new light-grey matt paint used on mirror caps, skid plates, front grille inserts, fog lamp surrounds, side skirts and front and rear bumpers.  The exterior is completed by exclusive 17″ black alloy wheels with orange elements and LED front and rear lights.  The interior reflects the look of the exterior, as shown by the orange detailing in the seats.

The Tipo Garmin special series is equipped with the new 1.5 T4 48 Volt Hybrid engine. In addition to the new Foresta Green, the Tipo Garmin special series comes in Gelato White, Colosseo Grey, Maestro Grey and Cinema Black liveries.

Smartwatch Garmin Venu Sq
Modern design inspired by urban atmospheres, gets combined with the most sophisticated technology to monitor physical state, such as heart rate, stress levels and sleep quality.  The Garmin Venu Sq smartwatch is the best coach to manage daily routine and keep well-being under control. It offers more than 20 preloaded outdoor and indoor sports apps and can record up to 200 hours of activity data. It features a 1.3″ bright colour LCD touchscreen, a powerful and reliable GPS and a battery life that lasts up to 6 days in smartwatch mode and up to 14 hours in GPS mode.  Garmin Venu Sq offers Bluetooth and Ant+ connection, as well as being compatible with Android and iPhone smartphones.
