Reliability and Safety The Fiat Panda received a four-star rating out of five from the safety experts at Euro NCAP, which lags behind the five-star scores we have come to expect from the best city cars. However, that score was mainly because ESP is an option on the standard model - and the 4x4 gets it as standard.
Is AWD better than 4x4?
Both AWD and 4WD will provide better traction than two-wheel drive vehicles in most everyday driving scenarios in winter weather. Large trucks and SUVs are great for towing and hauling heavy loads and usually come with 4WD over AWD. That means buyers that need to tow heavy loads should consider 4WD.
