Fiat revealed the new Tipo hatchback and estate at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

Full range details will be announced closer to the car’s UK launch in September, but details of the car have been already released.

The engine range will comprise five engines in total. There are two turbo diesel engines – a 1.3-litre MultiJet II producing 95hp and 200Nm and a 1.6-litre MultiJet II with an output of 120hp and 320Nm.

The petrol engine range comprises a 1.4-litre 16v producing 95hp and 125Nm, a 1.4 turbo petrol with 120hp and 206Nm and the 1.6-litre e-TorQ engine producing 110hp and 152Nm and combined exclusively to a six-speed, torque converter automatic transmission.

The Tipo 1.6 MultiJet II 120hp returns 76.3mpg and produces 98g/km of CO2 emissions. This engine can also be combined with a six-speed twin-clutch transmission.

In terms of the model range, both the hatchback and estate will be offered in three trim levels with air conditioning, remote central locking, rear electric windows (estate only), electric mirrors, six airbags, DAB digital radio and Bluetooth connectivity with steering wheel remote controls on all versions.

The hatchback is capable of accommodating three six-feet-plus adult passengers in the rear within its 4.37m long, 1.79m wide and 1.50m tall dimensions. Its boot has a volume of 440 litres, while the estate version adds an additional 110 litres of boot space at 550 litres. 

It can carry loads of up to 1.8m in length courtesy of an extra 20cm of length (4.57m); a flip-and-fold 60/40 split rear seats and completely flat load floor. The estate body style has a height of 1.51m thanks to the standard-fit longitudinal roof bars.

The Tipo features numerous cabin compartments with a variety of shapes and capacities totalling no less than 12 litres.
