Our spies have sent us a fresh batch of images with the Fiat Tipo five-door hatchback that will likely be revealed in the near future.
This is by far our best look at Fiat’s much-awaited Bravo replacement that will follow in the footsteps of the Tipo / Aegea sedan. As a matter of fact, the front half of the car will be pretty much identical, with the obvious changes visible at the back. The shorter rear end will host a roof-mounted spoiler incorporating the third brake light along with different taillights extending onto the hatch where there’s now a rear window wiper.
While the sedan has a cargo capacity of 520 liters with the rear seats in place, the hatchback will have significantly less than that. It will carry over the 60:40-split folding rear bench that will also be found in the more practical wagon version due sometime in 2016 with a bigger trunk.
All three cars (sedan, hatchback, wagon) will be built in Bursa, Turkey and will share 1.3- and 1.6-liter MultiJet II turbodiesel engines. In addition, Fiat will also have on offer less economical 1.4- and 1.6-liter naturally aspirated gasoline engines. Depending on choice, the motors will work 5- and 6-speed manuals and a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
Chances are we will see the Tipo hatchback at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2016, but an online reveal could occur next month or in February. As for the wagon version, it will likely be introduced in October in Paris to effectively fill in the gap left by the Stilo Multiwagon’s demise several years ago.
