The last Fiat Tipo production car was back in 1995. Over 20 years later, Fiat decided to bring the model back into service. Earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, Fiat revealed the new model. It will be available in the form of saloon, hatchback and estate variants.

Fiat is an Italian brand that has had its fair share of ups and downs in recent years. It looks as though it’s put the bad times behind it, starting with the iconic Fiat 500 launched back in 2007. And now it looks like it’s making waves in the automotive industry once again! So, what’s there to love about the new Fiat Tipo?

An attractive new entry to the market

Perhaps the first thing anybody will notice about the new Fiat Tipo is its styling. It matters not whether you look at the saloon, hatchback or estate models. The one thing they all have in common is their sleek and modern design.

The styling makes the Fiat Tipo look good wherever it goes. If you drive the car in an urban environment or a country setting, it’ll blend right in! One can’t help but think that the styling cues echo those from the latest Maserati models. Maserati, in case you didn’t know, is a subsidiary brand of Fiat.

Competitive pricing

Another reason for the Tipo making waves in the market is down to the pricing. Fiat promises – and has provided evidence – of competitive pricing. What that means for you is you’ll find the Tipo an attractive financial proposition.

The Fiat Tipo’s target market is people that buy cars like the Skoda Rapid Spaceback and the Kia Cee’d.

An amazing level of equipment as standard

Some decades ago, Fiat got accused of offering sparse equipment levels in their cars. To meet consumer demands, the company now offers a generous level of kit.

The new Fiat Tipo comes with an array of useful and welcome features as standard across the board. For instance, there’s an infotainment system with DAB digital radio and Bluetooth. You can also enjoy air conditioning, climate control, and power windows and mirrors. For a small optional extra, you could even have a built-in satellite navigation system!

Fiat’s impressive array of standard equipment is often found only on premium cars. But, the Fiat Tipo is not such a vehicle. Instead, the Italian car maker promotes the new model as a “best in class” vehicle.

Suitable for tall people

One thing that the six-footers among us hate about today’s cars is the lack of headroom. Sure, it’s possible to buy an SUV or something similar in size. But, what choice is there in the smaller compact segments?

The new Fiat Tipo is one of the most versatile models in its class. It can accommodate up to three adults that are six feet tall. How? The answer is simple: it boasts plenty of legroom at the back!

Final thoughts

The new Fiat Tipo will be available in dealerships in the third quarter of 2016. It’s already tipped to be an award-winning model. Check one out in the flesh and you’ll understand why!
