UNVEILED: 2016 FIAT TIPO (GALLERY)Posted On: November 29, 2015 By : AutoLife Team
After the world preview at the Istanbul Motor Show last May, Fiat has unveiled its Tipo sedan to the international press. The Fiat Tipo, Linea’s successor, will be marketed in over forty countries across the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa). This all-new, four-door car, compact sedan embodies Fiat’s “Born to be Sedan” concept which enhances the balanced, quintessentially Italian design to guarantee personality and style without forgoing functionality.In the EMEA region, the line-up will include three trim levels, four engine versions (the 1.4 16v Fire 95 HP and the 1.6 1.6v E.torQ 110 HP petrol engines and the 1.3 MultiJet II 95 HP and 1.6 MultiJet II 120 HP turbo diesels), two transmissions (five- or six-speed manual or six-speed automatic, the latter on 1.6 E.torQ only), a palette of various body colours (pastel and metallised), two alloy rim patterns (16″ and 17”) and four different interior configurations.The new car fits a reliable suspension layout for very accurate driving, brilliant road-holding and outstanding passenger comfort: independent wheels McPherson type on the front axle and interconnected wheels torque beam on the rear. The two layouts are optimised to reduce weight and contribute in this way to improving the car’s fuel-efficiency.
In the true Fiat style, the new Tipo is packed with a plenty of clever solutions that make life better for everyone on-board. Like the splendid standard features and the availability of the Uconnect TM system with a 5″ colour touchscreen, hands-free Bluetooth system, audio streaming, text reader and voice recognition, AUX and USB ports with iPod integration, controls on the steering wheel and, on demand, a rear parking camera and the new TomTom 3D Touch navigation system.Designed to tackle future challenges, the new Fiat Tipo was designed in Italy by Centro Stile Fiat, developed in Turkey together with Tofaş R&D, which is one of FCA’s largest research and development centres, and made in the Tofaş plant in Bursa – one of the world’s best automotive factories which has received a World Class Manufacturing Gold Medal.
