Fiat held the world premiere of two new models - The Fiat Panda Cross and the Fiat Freemon Cross - at the Geneva Motor Show. Both cars will be launched towards September 2014.

An independent MacPherson strut suspension system is found at the front and a linked torsion beam setup is placed at the rear. The five-door car gets special 15-inch alloy wheels, electric door mirrors and height-adjustable driver seat.
