New Sport Model Joins Refreshed Fiat Tipo Range
ollowing the introduction of the Street model, Fiat is refreshing the Tipo model line-up with the new Mirror and Sport versions. The Fiat Tipo embodies the time-honoured concepts synonymous with Fiat – functionality, simplicity and personality – while the new Sport version offers a car with a distinctive personality and a sporty character and the new Mirror is focused on connectivity.
Tipo Sport – distinctive personality and sporty style
Based on the S-Design, the Fiat Tipo Sport adds a host of dedicated and exclusive design elements to emphasise its dynamic style. The Sport trim level adds new front bumper with splitter, side skirts and black exterior door handles. The rear diffuser and roof spoiler complete the look and are a nod to the racing world which has inspired its dynamic look. The Fiat Tipo Sport trim is available exclusively as a 5-Door hatchback.
The Fiat Tipo S-Design also receives some updates with black fog-light bezels enhancing the gloss black grille, mirror caps, and 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. Inside, a new total black interior enhances the standard leather and fabric seats, with embellished double-stitched seams and cross-pattern techno-leather upholstery, and tinted rear windows to create a sporty ambiance. Connectivity also comes as standard, with Uconnect™ 7-inch Nav HD LIVE touchscreen, which is Apple CarPlay ready and Android Auto™ compatible, on both models.
The S-Design and Sport models are available with bi-colour paint for the first time on Tipo. New contrasting black roof can be combined with Passion Red livery, whilst further paint options will be available in the near future.
The engine line-up of the new Tipo S-Design and Sport models includes the 1.4-litre 95hp petrol engine and the 1.4-litre 120hp petrol, both combined with a six-speed manual gear-box as standard.
Tipo Mirror – accessible style and technology
Replacing the outgoing Easy Plus trim, Mirror is a non-compromising mid-range offering with its balance of technology and style. Connectivity is standard with UconnectTM 7-inch HD LIVE touchscreen, which is Apple CarPlay-ready and Android AutoTM compatible. Tipo Mirror also has its own distinctive style with its exclusive new Mirror Blue livery setting off a host of chrome details including door handles, lower window line, lower grille surround, fog light bezels, mirror caps and a “Mirror” badge on the pillar. Diamond cut 16-inch alloy wheels complete look.
The Fiat Tipo Mirror is available with a choice of petrol and diesel engines, including the 1.4-litre 95hp and 1.4-litre T-Jet 120hp petrol and 1.6-litre MultiJet 120hp diesel engines, all paired with a six-speed manual gearbox.
The new Fiat Tipo range is available to order now, priced from £14,905 OTR for the Easy 1.4 95hp. Until the 30 June 2019 the entire Tipo range, including the new Sport and Mirror models, is available with 0% APR*.
