FIAT’s new C-segment contender, as previewed by the FIAT Aegea Project unveiled in May at the Istanbul Motor Show, will be called as the new FIAT Tipo. “Tipo” has been used by FIAT since its earliest days and is now making a comeback on a global model. Designed in Italy at the FIAT Chrysler Automobiles Centro Stile, and developed in Turkey together with Tofaş R&D, one of FCA’s largest research and development centres, the new FIAT Tipo will be manufactured in the Bursa plant in Turkey. The vehicle will retain the FIAT Aegea name in the Turkish market only.
In terms of dimensions, the new FIAT Tipo saloon measures 4.5 meters in length, 1.78 meters in width and 1.48 meters in height, with a wheelbase of 2.64 meters and boot capacity of 510 litres, meaning it can accommodate five passengers and their luggage with ease. As is the case with all FIAT products, the Tipo will be available in two MultiJet II turbo-diesel engines and two petrol units with power outputs ranging from 95hp to 120hp and offered with manual and automatic transmissions (depending on engine).
Inside, the new FIAT Tipo is available with the latest technological features including FIAT Chrysler Automobiles’ touch-screen Uconnect infotainment system with hands-free Bluetooth calling and audio streaming; a rear parking camera and TomTom satellite navigation. The new FIAT Tipo will be a member of the “Functional Family” within the FIAT Brand, with an emphasis on value for money and practical features, as well as a straightforward model range and pricing structure.
