Fiat Tipo Hatchback Sheds Some Camo Ahead Of Geneva Debut

| |

Less camouflage on a pair of Fiat Tipo hatchback testers reveal for the first time the rear-end design of the upcoming compact model.

It’s been a while since we last saw a Golf-rivaling Fiat, but the wait is almost over as the hatchback version of the Fiat Tipo is expected to be introduced at the Geneva Motor Show.

For the first time, we can clearly see the rear end of the model, revealing the shape of the taillights, with the rest of the car remaining practically unchanged compared to the Tipo sedan.

As ever with different bodystyles of the same model, the Tipo Hatchback will offer the same design and tech features with its sedan sibling, including the company’s Uconnect infotainment system.

The engine range is again the same with the sedan’s, offering two diesel engines (94hp-1.3lt and 118hp-1.6lt) and two petrol engines (94hp-1.4lt and 108hp-1.6lt). Whether Fiat decides to throw some of its turbocharged petrol engines under the bonnet remains to be seen.

The new Tipo Hatchback will be more affordable than other models in its segment, with Fiat wanting to offer more value for money instead of chasing a class-leading position.
