New Fiat Tipo offers more

Forget about everything you thought the Fiat Tipo was. There’s more on offer than ever before and its new styling package revolutionises the practical package.

The Fiat Tipo has been more than refreshed, it has been reinvented with more emotion, distinction and dynamic styling that makes it more captivating and younger, while offering the highest technology there is and new better-performing and environment-friendly engines.

Where the Fiat Tipo offered unrivalled practicality and space before, it now offers more appeal for a new, younger target customer, those looking for a car that is not only functional and ideal for the city, but also super cool with contemporary design.

Safety and technology

To add to the design and style, a major refresh has taken place in terms of technology, with one goal: to reach the summit of the C-segment.

Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) is now standard across the Tipo range as is Fiat’s Tyre Pressure Monitoring (TPM) system.

When it comes to infotainment, the Tipo is equipped with the fifth-generation UConnect 5 infotainment system with Navigation. The connected platform is designed for the future, available with a 5” inch screen and developed with the idea of providing customers with a straightforward and convenient user experience in mind.


Available in either four-door sedan or five-door hatchback, Fiat Tipo is offered with the choice of three levels of specification: TIPO, CITY LIFE and LIFE.

Starting off the range is the TIPO sedan powered by the 1,4-litre petrol engine with six-speed manual transmission. The sedan is also available in CITY LIFE and LIFE derivatives. CITY LIFE models provide a host of comfort and convenience features as standard, adding automatic air-conditioning, multi-function steering wheel in leather, electric mirrors, and remote central locking, along with 16-inch alloy wheels. Front fog lights further distinguish CITY LIFE sedans.

CITY LIFE sedans also benefit from cruise control, rear-view camera and front and rear parking sensors. The infotainment system includes Navigation along with the 3,5-inch TFT display.

Order the automatic CITY LIFE sedan and you’ll get 17-inch alloy wheels and gloss black door handles along with the 1,6-litre petrol engine and six-speed automatic transmission. Adjustable lumbar support and keyless entry get added, while automatic headlights and windscreen wipers add further convenience.

Fiat Tipo hatchback is available in CITY LIFE and LIFE models with either 1,4-litre petrol six-speed manual or 1,6-litre six-speed automatic drivetrains.

Hatchback models benefit from a rear-view camera as standard, along with other comfort features that include a height adjustable driver’s seat, floor mats, and steering wheel controls.

Across the range, there’s a Tipo to suit anybody’s specific needs. All Fiat Tipos are covered by Fiat’s 5 years/100 000km warranty and 3 years/100 000km service plan.

More efficient and environment-friendlier engines

The engine line-up of the New Tipo has also been completely refreshed, available with either Fiat’s 1,4-litre petrol engine (70kW and 127Nm) with six-speed manual or 1,6-litre petrol motor (81kW and 152Nm) with six-speed automatic transmission.

Prices range from R299 900 to R449 900.
