Click to view more of the rendered 2010 Fiat Panda in high resolution

The Fiat Panda has been on the market in its current form since 2003, making it a likely candidate for replacement in the next couple of years. The miniscule five-door hatch was a big success contributing to Fiat's revival, winning the European Car of the Year award in 2004 before donating its platform for the even more successful 500 retro-hatch.

Italian car site OmniAuto is featuring a series of renderings predicting what the next Panda could look like, borrowing some of the retro cues from its Fiat 500 stablemate. Of course, this is mere speculation at this point, and while Fiat could decide to capitalize on the sell-out success of the Cinquecento with a similarly-styled five-door, it could alternatively deem keep the two models entirely separate. We'll see by 2010 when the new Panda is anticipated to make its debut, but in the meantime you can check out the renderings in the gallery by clicking on the thumbnails below, and let us know what you think in the comments.

      Ditto Throwback and Johann. What they are saying is correct. This thing is super ugly and should not be produced. The Fiat 500 is what it is, and it should not be diluted by shuffling Fiat 500 styling cues in and out of other vehicles that make up the Fiat product line.

      Man, somebody please stop the insanity! Fiat would be crazily-brain-dead to destroy the beauty of their 500 through using an ugly-stick to beat it onto the Panda.

      If they want to make the eye-sore Panda more attractive then they should do something else... for-the-love-of-aesthetics!!!

      Not too bad, but other opportunities are that they design a retro version of the Fiat 600. Or more likely, as not all people like retro designs or the increase pricing associated with them, that Fiat take the new Fiorino platform and design a 5 door version sharing design points and mechanicals (chassis, engine, suspension, other parts). This would enable a new Panda to be cheaper to design and build and give it a robustness in both perception and reality.
