Fiat Reveals UK Pricing & Specs For Tipo Hatch & SW

Fiat’s new Tipo Hatchback and Station Wagon models will cost UK buyers upwards of £12,995 for the 5-door and £13,995 for the SW, once sales start later this year.

Both versions will be offered in three trim levels, where entry-level models will get the basics such as air conditioning, remote central locking, front electric windows, body-colored door mirrors, chrome door handles, split rear seats, DAB digital radio, six airbags, USB and Bluetooth connectivity as well as a multi-function steering wheel. The SW will get rear electric windows and longitudinal roof bars, on top of all the features already available on the 5-door model.

Customers who’ll be wanting a bit more kit to go with their entry-level Tipo can opt for the front fog lights (£150), dark tinted rear windows (£175), rear electric windows ((£240 – standard on the SW), 16″ alloys (£350), rear parking sensors (£300) or the five-inch Uconnect touchscreen system with Live services, DAB and sat-nav (£500).

The Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system is standard on the mid-range trim level, as is the leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear knob, rear power windows, LED daytime running lights, 16″ alloys, front fog lights, rear parking sensors and cruise control. On average, the price for a mid-trim level model is £1000 over that of the entry-level model.

Key options for the mid-trim models include a sat-nav upgrade (£250), a reversing camera (£300) and two Safety Packs, with Pack A adding adaptive cruise control, speed limiter and AEB for £500 (unavailable on the entry-level trim or 1.4-liter engine models), and Pack B offering just the speed limiter function together with AEB for £250.

As for the top trim level, it builds on the mid-range spec by adding sat-nav with TomTom LIVE services (including HD traffic), climate control, 17″ alloys, automatic lights and wipers, rear view camera, driver’s side lumbar support and a chrome pack – all standard. The only options available are the leather upholstery with heated seats (£750) and the previously mentioned Safety Packs A & B.

Performance-wise, there are five available engines in total, three of them petrol and two diesels. The petrol engine lineup starts with a 1.4-liter 16v unit producing 95 HP and 127 Nm (93 lb-ft), a 1.4 T-Jet turbo unit with 120 HP and 206 Nm (151 lb-ft) and a 1.6-liter e-TorQ engine, good for 110 HP and 152 Nm (112 lb-ft) – available exclusively with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Customers looking for better fuel economy can choose between any of the two available diesel units, namely the 1.3-liter MultiJet II, producing 95 HP and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque or the 1.6-liter MultiJet II with a hefty 120 HP and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) on tap.

Also, if pulling power is a priority, the 1.4-liter T-Jet and 1.6-liter MultiJet II will provide the best acceleration, with respective 0-62 mph (100 km/h) sprint times of 9.5 (9.8 SW) seconds and 9.8 seconds (10.1 SW). However, in terms of fuel economy, either of the two available diesel options will perform best, identically rated at 76.3 UK mpg (3.7l/100km).

Both hatchback as well as SW versions of the all-new Fiat Tipo will go on sale in the UK in September.
