If you are looking for a smart family hatchback with good levels of equipment and low running costs, the Fiat Tipo is the ideal car for you.
Sleek lines create an elegant profile for the Fiat Tipo hatchback. The mesh grille featuring the Fiat logo extends out to the swept-back lights above the body-coloured bumpers. You can choose from three trim options for the Tipo: Easy, Easy Plus and Lounge. Electrically adjustable door mirrors are also body-coloured, while door handles are chrome, with additional chrome trims for the windows, fog lights and for the grille surround on the Lounge edition. 15-inch steel wheels on the Easy are upgraded to 16-inch alloys on the Easy Plus, with 17-inch alloys on the Lounge trim.
The 440 litres of boot space mean you can fit in plenty of luggage, and if you need to transport larger items you can create more room by folding down the 60:40 split rear seats. Passengers are not short of space either, with the Tipo’s class-leading legroom, and five adults can travel in comfort even on long journeys. Air conditioning is fitted on the Easy and Easy Plus trims, while the Lounge edition gets you an upgrade to automatic climate control. The Easy edition has front electric windows, and rear electric windows are added on the Easy Plus and Lounge trims.
The engine line-up for the Fiat Tipo includes a 1.4-litre 94bhp petrol edition with fuel economy of 49mpg and CO2 emissions of 132g/km, and a 1.4-litre 118bhp which returns 47mpg and emits 139g/km CO2. There is also a 1.6-litre petrol engine available with automatic transmission with 108bhp, fuel economy of 44mpg and CO2 emissions of 147g/km. You have two diesel engines to choose from, a 1.3-litre 94bhp version and a 1.6-litre engine with 118bhp, emitting 98g/km and 99g/km respectively, and both yielding 76mpg.
You will find the latest technology inside the cabin, with Fiat’s Uconnect five-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Tom Tom services, which enables you to access music through Deezer and TuneIn. The system also gives you information on traffic and weather. DAB radio, USB, AUX-in and Bluetooth connectivity are provided as standard across the range.
Safety features on all models include a set of six airbags, cruise control with speed limiter and autonomous emergency braking. Rear parking sensors are added on the Easy Plus, while the Lounge trim gets a rear-view camera and Fiat’s Visibility pack, which includes sensors for rain and dusk to activate lights and wipers, and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.
