The Fiat Tipo was a small family car produced by the Italian manufacturer Fiat between 1988 and 1995.

Initially available only as a five-door hatchback, it was an important step forward for Fiat: the Tipo's predecessor, the Fiat Ritmo/Strada, had given Fiat a reputation for making flimsy, unreliable and rust-prone cars, and the Tipo re-established Fiat as a quality manufacturer. The car was made entirely out of galvanized body panels to avoid rust, and was built on a completely new chassis that won praise for its ride and handling. In 1989, the Tipo won the European Car of the Year award.

VersionsEdit

Initially base (i.e.), DGT, S, SX and 16v trim levels were available. Power from 58 to 148 bhp came from 1.1, 1.4, 1.6, 1.8, 1.816v, 2.0, 2.016v petrol engines as well as a 1.7 diesel, 1.9 diesel and 1.9 turbo-diesel. The base engines were widely regarded as underpowered for the car, which was roomy for 5 adults with above average quality. As top of the range was the 2.0 sedicivalvole (16v) witch handling and brakes was the point of reference off all rivals at that time. Minor revisions to the Tipo range in 1993 saw the addition of a three-door version, minor exterior changes (the two evolutions of the car can be differentiated by their slightly different radiator grilles and headlamps) and improved specification; safety features like stiffer panel, driver's airbag were added to the range. This saw new S, SX and SLX trim levels, as well as a new 2.0 GT model.

The Tipo finally ceased production after making a unexeptable good strike at markets as Germany and England (especially the 16v), at the end of 1995 to be replaced by the three-door Fiat Bravo, four-door Fiat Marea, five-door Fiat Brava.
