Used Fiat Tipo for sale
Offering enough space to cover most scenarios, the Fiat Tipo is a family hatchback that makes for a good all-rounder. Released in 2015, the Tipo is larger than Fiat's 500, but not quite as large as their 500L.
Coming at a lower cost than many of its rivals, the Tipo is a great option if you're working with a budget. But don't let this fool you into thinking it's any less worthy than its competitors. The Tipo comes with a range of benefits that make it a viable candidate, such as:
- Different bodystyles to choose from
- Comfortable interior spaces
- Low running costs
- Decent amount of available kit
Discover the features of the Fiat Tipo in more detail below.
Engines and Driving Experience
Offering a number of different engines to choose from that suit a variety of needs, the Tipo's range starts with a 1.0-litre petrol engine that can return up to 51mpg combined. Higher-powered 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol engines can also be found, offering combined fuel economy figures of 49.6 and 44.8mpg respectively.
For maximum fuel economy, the 1.3-litre and 1.6-litre Multijet diesel engines are the ones to go for, as they're capable of achieving up to 76.3mpg on a combined cycle. For maximum comfort, automatic transmissions can also be found, but these are less common.
None of the engines return particularly exciting performance figures, but that isn't what the Tipo is designed for. Instead, you can be confident that you'll receive a comfortable driving experience no matter which engine you opt for.
Practicality and Running Costs
Practicality is the Tipo's strongest suit, being able to pack plenty of luggage into its large, 440 litres of boot space. If you need the extra space you can either fold the 60:40 rear folding seats down, or opt for the estate bodystyle which offers 550 litres of boot space as standard. An SUV-inspired 'cross' model is also on offer.
Coming with a 5-door configuration as standard, climbing in and out of the Tipo couldn't be easier. Once inside, all occupants can enjoy a generous amount of leg and headroom. The spacious interior also makes fitting a child's seat to the ISOFIX mounting points on the rear seats much easier.
The Tipo also comes with low running costs. Insurance starts at group 6 (out of 50), rising up to group 15 if opting for a higher specification model. All Evans Halshaw dealerships are also well-equipped to deal with any servicing or maintenance requirements.
Interior, Technology and Safety
The interior within the Tipo may not be what you expect from the Italian brand. It features a more subtle, professional finish than the exuberant interiors seen on other Fiat models. It's all still well laid out and easy to use, but darker aesthetics are implemented instead of bright colour combinations.
When it comes to standard equipment, entry-level specifications offer features such as cruise control and Uconnect infotainment system. Going for a higher configuration can see you gain access to further technology such as a rear view camera and satellite navigation.
As the Tipo is geared towards families, it offers a range of handy bits of safety equipment to provide confidence when on the road with your loved ones, such as:
- Lane control
- Attention assist
- Traffic sign recognition
- Blind spot assist
Is the Fiat Tipo right for me?
The Tipo is a good option if you and your family want a spacious, comfortable and well-equipped vehicle when out on the road.
After something more fashionable? The Renault Megane and SEAT Leon offer sleek styling and more flair. The uber-popular Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra also come with a wide variety of equipment and are great value for money.
Either way, the Fiat Tipo is still a good candidate if you're working within a smaller budget than what some of its rivals ask for.
