2016 Fiat Tipo

Though the Fiat has been around in India for a long time now, not all of its vehicles have made an impact or has actually seen a good ROI, but with the Tipo, Fiat hopes to overturn that and everyone is seeing a winner in this vehicle as it is perfected to aid driving.

Fiat Tipo Exteriors

The underlying exterior design of the Fiat Tipo is one of sportiness. It has an aerodynamic build quality and with a low body and agile nature, its looks are definitely captivating. The overall design theme runs all over and is evident in the side profiling and rear end design, giving it a pronounced and vibrant look. One aspect that is noticeable is its wheels; it is neatly designed and stands out too. But with on-road test drives and reviews having not been engaged in, there isn’t much information too that is available about the Fiat Tipo.

Fiat Tipo Pricing and Nearest Competition

The expected pricing of the sedan, Fiat Tipo is supposedly set to around INR 8- 13 lakhs. Yes. The prices are in line with other competitor sedans in its segment. Some of the Tipo’s closest competitors include the Honda City, Nissan Sunny, the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Hyundai Verna, and the Renault Scala.

Outcome awaited- Fiat Tipo

The Fiat Tipo was featured in a couple Auto Shows held abroad in 2015. In India, it was showcased in the Auto Expo 2016. This biennial event was held in New Delhi in the month of February, from 5th to 9th 2016.

The Tipo may be launched on the Indian roads somewhere in 2016; this C-segment sedan is in all ways, set to replace another in-house model the Linea. But as per available information and initial flurries about the vehicle, this has all the makings of a winner; it is well-designed and well-equipped and is fitting for a sedan. And we never know, Fiat may have a winner in the form of the Tipo. Till and after its initial release, it’s a wait and watch.
