Fiat has announced the new compact sedan of the company will wear the Tipo moniker in the EMEA region.
Previewed by a concept at the Istanbul Motor Show in May this year, the production model will hit the market in December starting from Italy with more countries from the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa) to follow shortly after. The Tipo name will be used in all these countries, except Turkey where the car will be called the Egea.
The sedan will be offered with “reliable, high performing and economical power units”, including two Multijet II turbo diesel engines and two petrol ones, with manual or automatic transmission and power ranging from 95 (70 kW) to 120 PS (88 kW).
The Fiat Tipo was a small family hatch produced between 1988 and 1995, which won the European Car of the Year award in 1989. A total of nine different engines were available with power ranging from 58 (43 kW) to 148 PS (109 kW).
