The range-topping Sport model of the Fiat Tipo has arrived in the UK, offering more aggressive styling and kit but not any actual hardware changes.
Prices for the new Fiat Tipo Sport start from £19,255 in the UK, fitted with the base 95hp 1.4-liter four-cylinder petrol unit, or £20,575 for the more powerful 118hp turbocharged 1.4-liter T-Jet model. A six-speed manual transmission is standard on both engine options.
Based on the existing S-Design model, the new Fiat Tipo Sport features an exclusive bodykit, including a new front bumper with splitter, deeper side skirts, a rear diffuser and spoiler as well as black door handles and 18-inch alloys. It’s also offered only in the five-door hatchback bodystyle.
Fiat now offers both the Tipo S-Design and Sport models with a two-tone paint finish, that includes a contrasting black roof, promising to add further paint options in the near future.
The cabin adopts a total black theme, with leather/fabric seats featuring double-stitched seams and a cross pattern for the leather, as well as tinted rear windows and a seven-inch Uconnect infotainment system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included as standard.
Other changes in the UK range include the new Tipo Mirror, which replaces the outgoing Easy Plus model as the mid-range model of the Tipo lineup. It too comes with an exclusive Mirror Blue paint finish, featuring additional chrome details on the door handles, lower window line, lower grille surround, fog lights and elsewhere.
The mid-range Fiat Tipo Mirror starts from £16,155 and is offered with both petrol and diesel engine options, including the 1.6-liter Multijet diesel with 118hp paired to a six-speed manual gearbox.
