Fiat launches Tipo in Ireland

Fiat Ireland is launching the new Tipo hatchback and wagon in early November at a starting price of €17,995, writes Brian Byrne.

A saloon will be added to the range on 1 January.

There will be three petrol and two diesel engines in the powertrain range, and a dual-clutch automatic will be available in addition to the standard 6-speed manual..

Standard features in the Irish market will include air-conditioning, bluetooth, and a full-size spare wheel.

The arrival of the new car will bring the brand back into the very important compact family C-Segment.

There will be three grades, Pop, Easy and Lounge.
