A jury of 26 motoring journalists representing 26 European countries as part of the Autobest International panel have voted the Fiat Tipo as “Autobest 2016.”
With a total of 1492 points the Fiat Tipo came out on top against some tough competition. The points were accumulated over 13 different parameters which included design, comfort, running cost effectiveness, driveability, price, service network, spare parts distribution, versatility and buy-back value. Overall the car must be the best buy for more European customers in order to win.
Particularly appreciated for the Fiat Tipo was its great value for money, which is a key concept in the strategy of the Fiat Functional family. The Jury were also impressed with its design, engines, perceived quality, comfort, versatility and excellent price-to-quality ratio.
The Fiat Tipo is a compact car offering dimensions of 4.54 metres long, 1.79 metres wide and 1.49 metres high, along with an impressive load capacity boasting 520-litres. Inside and out the car is flowing with Italian design which gives it diversity within its segment.
In true Fiat style, the new Tipo is packed with innovative features that make journeys just that little bit easier. Standard equipment includes a 5-inch colour Uconnect touchscreen display, hands-free Bluetooth system, audio streaming, text reader and voice recognition, AUX and USB ports with iPod integration, steering wheel mounted controls and optional rear parking camera and TomTom 3D Touch navigation system.
The Fiat Tipo has got off to a successful start in Italy with over one thousand contracts being sealed during the first dealership event. The Fiat Tipo will be launched in other countries by next spring and the hatchback and estate versions will be available in the UK.
