Fiat has announced pricing and spec details of the all-new Tipo ahead of its September on-sale date.

Prices for the 1.4 hatchback start at £12,995 and prices for the Station Wagon start at £13,995. Prices reach a maximum of £18,995 for both body types.

In terms of the model range, both the hatchback and Station Wagon will be offered in three trim levels - the names of these trim levels in the UK have not been revealed.

The entry-level trim level is equipped with air conditioning, remote central locking, front electric windows, body-coloured door mirrors with electric adjustment, six airbags, DAB digital radio, chrome door handles, split rear seats, a front seat centre arm rest, USB and Bluetooth connectivity with steering wheel remote controls.

The Station Wagon adds rear electric windows and longitudinal roof bars.

Options for the entry-level version include front fog lights (£150), dark tinted rear windows (£175), rear electric windows (£240 – standard on Station Wagon), 16-inch alloy wheels (£350), rear parking sensors (£300) and a five-inch Uconnect touchscreen system with Live services, DAB and satellite navigation (£500).

The mid-range trim level adds a five-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear knob, rear power windows, LED daytime running lights, 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, rear parking sensors and cruise control.

Also included with the mid-level version are the Uconnect Live services, which combines with a smartphone app (available via App Store or Google Play) to offer music streaming with Deezer and TuneIn, news from Reuters and the ability to use Facebook Check-in and Twitter, as well as monitoring vehicle performance, efficiency and maintenance status with eco:Drive and my:Car.

Key options for this trim level include a satellite navigation upgrade (just £250), reversing camera (£300) and Comfort Pack (climate control, driver’s side lumbar adjustment and rear arm rest).

Two safety packs are available, with Safety Pack B offering a speed limiter and Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) for £250 and Safety Pack A adding adaptive cruise control (ACC) in addition to the speed limiter and AEB for £500. Safety Pack A is not available with the entry trim level or 1.4-litre engine.

The top trim level, which is priced £1,000 above the equivalent mid-level version, builds on the specification of the mid-range Tipo but adds satellite navigation with TomTom Live services including HD Traffic, climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic lights and wipers, rear view camera, driver’s side lumbar support and a chrome pack all as standard.

The engine range comprises five engines in total.

There are three petrol engines, a 1.4-litre 16v producing 95hp and 127Nm, a 1.4 T-Jet turbo petrol with 120hp and 206Nm and the 1.6-litre e-TorQ engine producing 110hp and 152Nm (combined exclusively to a six-speed, torque converter automatic transmission) and 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.
