Description

The Fiat Tipo was a C-Segment car produced by the Italian manufacturer Fiat between 1988 and 1995. Initially available only as a five-door hatchback, it re-established Fiat as a quality manufacturer thanks to its reliability, its ride and handling and its galvanized body panels that resisted to rust. In 1989, the Tipo won the European Car of the Year award.

The top of the range version was the Tipo sedicivalvole (16v) which handling and brakes was the point of reference off all rivals at that time. The car used a 2.0 liter engine producing 145 hp (107 kw) with  VVDT, DOHC 16valve, 2 counter-balanced shafts and fully integrated electronic management. It also featured BOSCH ABS 4 discs in all four wheels.

Minor revisions to the Tipo range in 1993 saw the addition of a three-door version, a few exterior changes on the grille and headlights, and improved specifications. safety features like stiffer panel, driver’s airbag were added to the range.

In 1995-1996, Fiat ceased production of the Tipo and replaced it with the Bravo/Brava models.
