Fiat Ireland will expand its C Segment line up when the all-new Fiat Tipo sedan goes on sale next month with prices starting from just €16,745.
The sedan model completes the all-new Fiat Tipo range with the hatchback and station wagon versions having been launched last month. As with these body types the sedan model offers exceptional roominess, high specification, robust quality and outstanding efficiency, not to mention stylish Italian flair at an affordable price.
The new FIAT Tipo sedan is capable of accommodating three six-feet-plus adult passengers in the rear - thanks to class-leading legroom and outstanding headroom - within its 4.53m long, 1.79m wide and 1.49m tall dimensions. Its boot capacity is also best-in-class with a volume of 520 litres and loads of up to 1.8m in length can be carried courtesy of its flip-and-fold 60/40 split rear seats that provide a completely flat load floor.
In terms of the model range, the sedan will be offered in three trim levels, in keeping with the New Tipo hatchback and station wagon line-up, – Pop, Easy and Lounge.
The Pop trim level is equipped with air conditioning, remote central locking, front & rear electric windows, body-coloured door mirrors with electric adjustment, six airbags, chrome door handles, split rear seats, a front seat centre arm rest, full size spare wheel, USB and Bluetooth connectivity with steering wheel remote controls.
The Easy trim level adds a five-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear knob, 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, rear parking sensors and cruise control. The price for the Easy trim level trim is currently set at the same price (€16,745) as the entry level Pop by way of a consumer offer for Q1, offering exceptional content, value for money and making it easier for customers to choose the best Tipo for their needs and budget.
The Lounge trim level, which is priced just €1,250 above the equivalent Easy version, builds on the specification of the mid-range Tipo but adds satellite navigation, 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 four engines in total. There are two petrol engines, a 1.4-litre 16v producing 95hp and 127Nm 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.
