Some publications published photos from the tests of the updated Fiat Tipo station wagon. Presentation of new items is scheduled for the end of this year.

The second-generation Fiat Tipo (if you consider the original Tipo, released in 1988-1995) was introduced to the European market in October 2015. The compact car is a joint project of the Italian manufacturer and company Tofas from Turkey and is sold in hatchback, sedan and station wagon bodies. Now the team of engineers of the Italian brand is working on an updated version of the model.

 These are the first “spy” photographs showing the winter trials of the prototype on public roads.

Only the front bumper and the false radiator grille are hidden with camouflage. According to rumors, the novelty will also receive new headlights, however this test prototype is still equipped with current headlights.

The Tipo engine range includes a 1.4-liter gasoline engine rated at 95 horsepower and two 1.3 and 1.6 liter diesel engines rated at 95 and 120 hp. respectively. Depending on the engine, you can get either a five- or six-speed manual gearbox as standard, while a more powerful diesel comes with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. There are also bioethanol engines.

In total, more than 600,000 copies of the Fiat Tipo were sold, thanks to which the model became one of the most successful in the modern car market in Europe. We expect to see the updated Fiat Tipo by the end of this year, and its sales are likely to begin in November or December 2020.
