Fiat Egea (Fiat Tipo) exterior and interior walkaround – Video
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Will be called Fiat Tipo in EMEA markets.
The Fiat Tipo/Egea will measure 4500 mm long, 1780 mm wide, 1480 mm tall, and has a wheelbase of 2640 mm. The exterior of the Fiat Tipo features an all new design that was previewed by the Fiat Aegea concept in Turkey
Inside, it has a flowing dashboard with a silver accent running across it. There are buttons neatly arranged under the central HVAC vents, a 3-spoke steering wheel with buttons, Uconnect infotainment system with a 5-inch color touchscreen display, automatic climate control and Bluetooth connectivity.
Under the hood, the Fiat Tipo will pack a choice between two Multijet diesel engines: 95 hp and 120 hp. Although unconfirmed, they are likely to be the 95 hp 1.3 Multijet and 120 hp 1.6 Multijet II. It will be paired to a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Reports suggest that, apart from its main production in Turkey, the Fiat Tipo will also be manufactured in Brazil and India, re-igniting rumors of its eventual introduction in India.
