Fiat Tipo Overview
The Fiat Tipo is classed as a small family car which was produced by the Italian automobile manufacturing company Fiat. This vehicle was in production from 1988 to 1995 and was only available as a hatchback. This car won the European car of the year in 1989 and has a surprisingly large amount of space in the rear passenger and boot areas for a car this small. They drove really well and were pretty reliable cars all round. These cars have fully galvanised bodies to prevent rust and are well built cars. They have been known to have electrical failures as well as oil or radiator leaks. Does this sound anything like your experience of this car?
Fiat Tipo History
The Fiat Tipo was designed as a replacement for the Fiat Ritmo and was introduced in 1988. They were quickly recognised for there spacious rear, being more spacious than a lot of estate cars, even more rear space than larger cars such as the Ford Sierra. They were very boxy in shape which allowed for this extra room and this car won the European Car of the year in 1989, the year after it was introduced. It was built on a totally new Fiat platform which would then go on to be used on other Italian cars produced by Fiat, Lancia and Alfa Romeo. This car had a mid-life facelift in 1993 and was eventually replaced by the Fiat Brava and Bravo range in 1995.
The Fiat Tipo had several different engines available: 1.1, 1.4, 1.6, 1.7, 1.8 and 2.0L petrol and 1.7 and 1.9L diesel engines. The diesel engines are the more economical, offering up to 45mpg.
