The Autobianchi Giardiniera is a supermini produced by the Italian automaker Autobianchi, based on the Fiat 500 Giardiniera. The Fiat version being offered since 1960. It was available in various configurations: station wagon and van. Car was produced from 1968 to 1977 effectively replacing the Fiat counterpart. It was also marketed as the Autobianchi Bianchina Giardiniera.[1][2] The overall layout was very similar to the earlier Panoramica but the Giardiniera was more utilitarian oriented and ideally suited for light commerce.[3] It also retained the same exterior design from Fiat with only a badge change, and still featured the suicide doors.
