Fiat Tipo Family Gains New Hatch And Wagon Members

| |

The Fiat Tipo sedan will not feel alone anymore, as the Italian manufacturer's compact car family has just been expanded with two new versions in Geneva.

Aimed towards some of the most competitive vehicles in the segment, such as the new Megane Estate and the Opel Astra Sports Tourer, the Fiat Tipo estate benefits from the same typical design elements as the four-door saloon, up to the C-pillar, and it also comes with reshaped taillights, roof rails and a more practical boot.

The five-door hatch follows the same design recipe as Fiat's new estate and mirrors its rear end design, with a similar tailgate, roof scoop, lighting units and bumper. Boot size capacity is not known yet on the two fresh models, but the Tipo sedan has 520 liters (18.3 cu. Ft.).

Fiat will offer the hatchback and estate with the same engine lineup as the one found on the four-door, meaning naturally aspirated petrol engines with 1.4 and 1.6 liters in displacement, along with 1.3-liter and 1.6-liter MultiJet II diesels. Depending on the selected version, the mill will be connected to either a five- or six-speed manual transmission or to a six-speed automatic.
