Fiat Tipo: You don’t need much to get a lot
Available from Zimoco, Fiat Tipo epitomises good value, particularly in terms of its offering.
It is practical and offers value for money and comprehensive specifications.
It comes in hatchback and sedan guises. Zimoco will bring in sedans for starters.
The Fiat Tipo is a well-rounded budget sedan. It offers more than enough practicality for most situations, while the strong engine and comfortable chassis make it an acceptable family car to live with.
If you are looking for a value-for- money family car, certainly give the Tipo a look.
The engine choices for the Tipo include an entry-level 1.4-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine with 70 kW and 124 Nm of torque. This engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission with a claimed fuel consumption figure 5.7 L/100 km. For more gusto, customers can opt for the naturally aspirated 1.6-litre engine petrol engine with 81 kW and 152 Nm of torque. This engine is only offered with a 6-speed automatic transmission and fuel efficiency is a claimed 6.3 L/100 km.
It has generous space for passengers and their luggage. The Tipo sedan has a particularly large boot with a claimed capacity of 520 litres, which is considerable and, if you utilise the 60:40-split rear bench, utility space increases even further.
The interior is designed to offer driver and passengers maximum space and comfort. It has excellent on-board comfort thanks to its spaciousness and intelligent solutions: storage compartments, automatic climate control, steering wheel controls and infotainment system. The matching seats are comfortable too. It has class-leading interior space for the utmost on-board comfort. Every journey becomes a unique, practical and perfect experience to suit your needs.
In terms of safety, the Tipo is fitted with 2 airbags, rear ISOfix child seat mounting points, ABS, electronic stability control, tyre pressure monitoring and hill-hold assist. Rear-parking sensors are fitted on all except Pop derivatives, while a reverse camera is optional on Easy sedan and Easy hatchback, and standard on the 1.3 Lounge derivative.
It has a decent amount of standard equipment; even the most basic versions get air conditioning, electric front windows, a DAB radio and Bluetooth.
Getting comfortable is easy enough thanks to plenty of adjustment to both the steering wheel and driver’s seat, with adjustable lumbar support available on S-Design and top-spec Sport models.
