New Fiat Tipo

You don’t need much to get a lot!

A wealth of standard equipment with all the space and comfort you could want – this is the Fiat Tipo philosophy.

The award-winning New Fiat Tipo hatchback and estate models are available at Essex Fiat in Southend now!

The international panel of Autobest (an independent organisation) recently voted the Tipo ‘The Best Buy Car of Europe in 2016'. The panel of 26 motoring journalists from 26 European countries scored new cars on 13 different factors, including design, comfort, running costs, performance, price, service network, spare parts distribution, versatility and buy-back value. The model's functional practicality and great value for money were cited as the key to its success.

Dan Vardie, AUTOBEST Founder & Chairman, said: “The FIAT Tipo is ‘The Best Buy Car of Europe in 2016'. The new Tipo family was built around the strategy `a great car for a budget` and not a `budget car`. The result is an outstanding product, with all the ingredients needed by an average customer of Europe. Design, engines, perceived quality, comfort, versatility. Tipo is the new expression of the functional side of Fiat brand. And the new proposition of `value for money` concept. On behalf of AUTOBEST, it is my pleasure to congratulate all the people involved in the Tipo/ Aegea project engineers, designers and people who manufacture the car for this wonderful confirmation of their outstanding job.”

The five-door, five-seat hatchback has a typically stylish Italian look inside and out, with plenty of comfortable space in the interior and a highly practical boot capacity. Technology includes Fiat's latest features, such as the 5-inch touchscreen Uconnect infotainment system with hands-free Bluetooth calling and audio streaming, USB and aux ports with iPod integration, text reader and voice recognition, and steering wheel controls as standard. A rear parking camera and the new TomTom 3D Touch satellite navigation will come as options.

The New Tipo is available with a choice of two MultiJet II turbo-diesel motors and two petrol engines with power ranges from between 95hp to 120hp, with either a manual or automatic gearbox depending on the engine. Fuel economy is reported to be up to 70.6mpg.
