Fiat Resurrects Tipo Name For Its New Compact Sedan

Although in Turkey the car will be called Egea, in the rest of EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa) countries the car will receive the iconic Tipo nameplate.

First shown in May at the Istanbul Motor Show as the Aegea Concept, the compact sedan will go on sale in Italy in December and later in other EMEA region countries.

The Tipo name, used by Fiat since its earliest days, will therefore make a comeback on a global model. The all-new, four-door model will be offered with four engines, two diesels and two petrol units with outputs ranging from 95PS to 120PS. The engines will be available with both manual or automatic transmissions. The most economical model will be one of the diesels, which should return 4 l/100 km (70.6 mpg UK or 58.8 mpg US).

The compact sedan is 4.5m (14.7 ft) long, 1.78m (5.8 ft) wide and 1.48m (4.8 ft) high, with a 2.64m (8.66 ft) wheelbase. Luggage capacity is a generous 510 liters (18 cu.ft).

The Fiat Tipo has been designed in Italy by the FCA Style Centre, developed in Turkey with Tofaş R&D and will be built in the Tofaş plant in Bursa. The model will be sold in over 40 countries in the EMEA area. Later on, the plant will also build hatchback and estate versions of the compact sedan.
