The styling has been re-worked and strikes a modern fresh look to compliment their existing line-up!
Key Features of the all-new Fiat Tipo
The all-new Fiat Tipo features a host of features to be the envy of any utilitarian feature-seeker! The Tipo boasts great versatility, with a 420-litre boot in the hatchback and a 520-litre boot in the estate. To bolster the Tipo’s versatility, Fiat have also boasted “class-leading legroom”, with enough room in the back to comfortably fit three 6ft tall people.
The Fiat Tipo has been dubbed “best-in-class” for storage, featuring three different trim levels. It’s been reported that all entry-level Tipo vehicles come with air-conditioning, DAB radio, bluetooth and electric mirrors, however UK specifications haven’t been fully confirmed.
The Fiat Tipo will be available with a 1.4 litre petrol engine with a 6-speed gearbox, and a turbo (119bhp) or without a turbo (94bhp). A 1.6 litre petrol will be available as an automatic. To compliment the petrol line-up, two diesels will be offered, a 5-speed 1.3 litre (94bhp) and a 6-speed 1.6 litre (118bhp). The Estate and Hatchback versions will be made available in the UK but not the Saloon at this stage. There is no news on pricing as of yet, but Fiat have stated the new Tipo will be competitively priced, cheaper than most of the rivals!
