The Fiat Tipo / Aegea hatchback has been caught on camera one more time prior to its market launch next year.

Attached footage shows Fiat is putting the finishing touches on its long overdue Bravo replacement. We now get the chance to see a prototype of the Tipo hatchback both inside and out courtesy of new spy footage coming from Germany. It’s basically a hatchback version of the sedan, so expect the front half of the car to look virtually the same.

Only the rear end will go through some changes to accommodate the switch to a hatchback body style and we also notice the taillights have a different shape. There’s also a roof-mounted spoiler incorporating the third brake light along with a rear wiper and a reshaped bumper necessary after the adoption of a hatch opening.

The attached clip also shows the interior cabin which unsurprisingly has been carried over from the sedan and doesn’t look half bad for a budget hatchback. Overall, the car seems to have what it takes to go up against segment rivals from Renault’s Dacia and VW’s Skoda.

As far as the engines are concerned, Fiat will sell the Tipo / Aegea hatch with an assortment of units, such as a 1.4-liter with 95 bhp and a larger 1.6-liter with 110 bhp. On the diesel side, you’ll find a 1.3-liter 16V MultiJet II with 95 bhp and a beefier 1.6-liter 16V MultiJet II rated at 120 bhp. These will work with five- and six-speed manual gearboxes and a six-speed automatic.

Fiat will reveal its new hatchback very soon and the company is also cooking up a wagon version set to fill in the void created after the Stilo Multiwagon’s demise.
